Jakarta, 28 November 2018 – The Indonesian Ministry of Education and Culture’s Research and Development Agency (Balitbang), in collaboration with the Innovation for Indonesia’s School Children (INOVASI), an Australia – Indonesia education partnership program, today held the fourth ‘Temu INOVASI’ education forum in Jakarta. Hosted in the Ministry of Education and Culture’s Graha Meeting Room, the event was attended by more than 200 provincial and national stakeholders from Indonesia’s education sector. This included teachers, principals, supervisors, government officials, and representatives from education institutions and organisations seeking to improve educational quality.
Head of the Ministry of Education and Culture’s Research and Development Agency, Totok Suprayitno, explained in his opening remarks that, “Temu INOVASI is a platform for exchanging ideas, and sharing good and promising practices to improve student learning outcomes carried out in various regions in Indonesia. It is expected that the various practices showcased today from NTB, NTT, North Kalimantan and East Java will not only stop at schools that participate in INOVASI pilots, but can also be scaled-out and create a snowball effect in other locations.”
