Program Accreditation through Institutional Self-Study and Peer Validation.
Djiwandono, M. Soenardi
This article reports on a study initiated by the government of Indonesia in 1987 to create foundations for a national accreditation process by establishing a set of standards for teacher education institutions. Five of Indonesia's 10 Institutes of Teacher Training and Education (ITTE) took part in this institutional self-study. A national committee of ITTE faculty members drafted manuals on ITTE teaching standards, their application, and the writing of institutional profiles. Self-study reports were compiled by faculty and staff at each of the five institutes, and these reports were validated by teams of outside educators. A summary of the profile of the English Department of ITTE Malang is included. Overall conclusions about the institutional self-study itself, as well as the organization, management, curriculum, faculty, students, facilities, and student teaching opportunities of the ITTEs, are reviewed.
