    Abstract

    Pembangunan profesional (PP), pembangunan fakulti, pembangunan staf, pembelajaran profesional dan pembelajaran berterusan merupakan konsep-konsep yang merujuk maksud yang sama iaitu ilmu dan kemahiran yang diperolehi untuk pembangunan personal dan kemajuan karier. Kekangan dalam profesion akademik di Indonesia yang merangkumi tanggungjawab pengajaran yang tinggi, kekangan masa, kepadatan penduduk dan kekurangan latihan pendidikan telah mendesak insitusi pengajian tinggi untuk menyediakan PP yang lestari dan berkesan melalui penggunaan teknologi yang sesuai. Demi cabaran ke arah akreditasi antarabangsa, National Legislation on Teachers and Faculty as Professionals seperti yang termaktud di dalam Akta Indonesia Nombor 20, 2003, Akta Nombor 4, 2005 dan Peraturan Kerajaan Nombor 19, 2005 menyediakan anjakan paradigma dengan mengadakan program PP yang bermanfaat dan berkualiti untuk fakulti di Indonesia. Matlamat utama kajian ini ialah untuk mengusulkan satu kerangka dalam membangunkan program PP dalam konteks institusi pengajian tinggi di Indonesia. Matlamat ini boleh dicapai dengan mengkaji amalan PP sedia ada di institusi pengajian tinggi Indonesia, menyiasat model pendekatan PT sedia ada dan mengenalpasti peluang untuk memperkasakan inisiatif PP. Professional development (PD), faculty development, staff development, professional learning and continuous learning are all similar concepts which refer to acquirement of skills and knowledge for personal development and career advancement. The main constraints in Indonesian academic profession include heavy teaching responsibilities, strict bureaucracy, poor scientific publication, low human development index and insufficient education training that urged higher education institutions to provide sustainable and effective PD by leveraging the use of feasible technology. Due to challenges towards international accreditation, the National Legislation on Teachers and Faculty as professionals as stipulated in the Indonesian Act Number 20, 2003, Act Number 14, 2005 and Government Regulation Number 19, 2005, provides an important paradigm shift to foster quality and meaningful PD programme for faculty in Indonesia.The ultimate goal of the study is to provide a framework for developing a PD programme in the context of the Indonesian higher education sector. This goal can specifically be reached by examining existing PD practices in Indonesia’s higher education institutions, investigating current models of blended learning (BL) approach and recommending improvements to current PD practices in the country.
