Even in the past, the main focus is not only from the government, but from every family, it is basic education.
This means that there must be a strong basis when it comes to elementary school and middle school.
However, what is always left as the next line is higher education. Sometimes, increasing higher education is the only responsibility of higher education institutions. Thus, the quality of higher education is sacrificed.
However, this scenario should not occur. The knowledge obtained by students during their early years of school will all be placed for waste if they do not get quality higher education.
There must be a sustainable acquisition of knowledge so that students will turn into better and more productive individuals.
To ensure the quality of higher education institutions and higher education in general, here are some steps to do.
If this recommendation is done to practice, not only students, but all educational stakeholders will benefit from the results.
1. Review and get back on each course curriculum. The main reason why some curriculum tends to be ineffective is they have been outdated. Some content only addresses the needs of students in the past.
Because education is still alive and developing, as well as the needs of students. Therefore, each institution of higher education must see it that there is an update for the curriculum.
This must integrate changes that are currently arising. It must also have corrective feedback on errors, if any, from the previous curriculum.
With this, students will see more relevant and responsive education processes against calls.
2. Check the ability of students to apply the theory studied. Another problem why the quality of higher education is always questioned is the ability of students to live what they have learned in the four corner of the class.
Some students can be mentally capable and very good in terms of theory. However, when asked to go to the field, they could hardly practice what they had learned at school.
In short, students are not ready for real life tasks. Therefore another problem must be given a priority. The course of the course they take must have a practical application. With this, even at school, students can anticipate what might happen in the real scenario.
But students, must be assessed individually. In the end, there must be a guarantee that people who need to learn at a different speed are given the opportunity.
3. Give a focus on the development of the faculty. Sometimes, the success of each curriculum also depends on the teacher. No matter how big the planned curriculum is if the teacher cannot take it well, then it will be useless.
Therefore, along with renewing the curriculum is the teacher’s update too.
This applies not only to new teachers, but for those who have taught some time. Everyone in the academy needs to renew itself with the current trend to provide a better perspective during the study discussion.
The worst part is if students know more from the teacher. Thus, the construction of the faculty must also be one of the targets.
4. Stop giving birth to poor student performance with the theory that no one is left behind. Silly to assume that every student must move forward with their class if they fail school.
Let those who need to be detained, detained. Perhaps stigma attached to the school will be reaffirmed if students themselves are held for a higher level of accountability.
These fourth just steps to ensure the quality of higher education.
