Teaching Practice in Distance Education Context
Faculty Education of Indonesian Open University (UT)
Teaching practice is an activity designed to enable students in mastering teaching skills. This activity is very important to improve the ability of prospective teachers, because theoretical knowledge has not been able to equip the teaching practice. The practice of teaching at schools provides a real experience for students in the real class, because theoretical knowledge through the process of learning in the classroom can not equip the teaching practice.
Faculty of Teacher Training and Education of Indonesia Open University (UT) with distance learning system has designed Teaching Practice through Praktek Kemampuan Mengajar (PKM) course with 3 credit score. PKM is implemented in the schools where they teach and are guided by two supervisors. The PKM exam is conducted at the designated centre schools at each UT Regional Office .
