The Implementation of Blended and Student Centered Learnings at Universitas Kristen Krida Wacana
In this globalization era, higher education institutions are required to provide their students with essential skills to survive the industrial revolution 4.0. This phenomenon becomes more apparent in developing countries, where globalization is unavoidable and the utilization of advanced technology becomes a necessity. Blended learning (BL) and student center learning (SCL) may become the means for students and lecturers to be active participants of the learning processes. The purpose of this paper is to present our effort in preparing students to be more confident, self-reliant, eager to compete and collaborate as well as to master new knowledge in the field they have chosen to study. Six samples of SCL classes and one sample of BL class are described. Quantitative and qualitative approaches were applied to measure the process of implementing the learning methods. Results indicate favorable outcomes. It is recommended to use BL since it will include SCL in the near future to all classes offered at UKRIDA.
