The policy of MIT learning aims to enable the learning process at graduate schools to produce new comprehensive discoveries on science and humanities.

Strategic Planning Model of Islamic Religious Higher Education (PTKI) in Indonesia

Abstract Strategic planning for higher education is vital because it becomes a reference in determining the direction of policy and organizational performance. To win the competition in gaining the market, strategic planning activities become the spearhead in determining the strategy to achieve the appropriate institutional goals. However, the implementation of strategic planning at Islamic Religious Higher Education (PTKI) is often constrained because of the lack of understanding of the importance of these theories, so the implementation of strategic planning is often only intended for administrative requirements. Amid this condition, there is a phenomenon where some PTKIs are developing rapidly and transforming to be more market-oriented and to win the competition. These PTKIs are UIN Maulana Malik Ibrahim Malang, UIN Syarif Hidayatullah, IAIN Tulungagung, Muhammadiyah University of Malang,and Malang Islamic University. They have succeeded in creating effective strategies in organizational development until now they can become modern institutions and develop into multi-level organizations. The purpose of this study is to explore the five PTKI strategy models in Indonesia at the corporate and business unit levels based on Fred R. David’s corporate-level strategy models,and Porter’s generic strategy model theory Data were collected by qualitative methods through observation, interview,and documentation techniques. The results showed that at the corporate level, Fred R. David’s strategy models applied by PTKI were vertical integration strategy, intensive strategy, and diversification strategy. In the defensive strategy, what is more,applied is the retrenchment strategy choice. However, at the business unit level, Porter’s well-implemented strategy models are the cost leadership strategy, differentiation strategy, and focus strategy. These results have implications  for  the  selection  of  business  strategy  models  to  be  used  in  either  profit-oriented or non-profit strategic planning activities in PTKI.

Religious Teacher Performance: Revitalization of Islamic Religious Education (IRE) Teachers As Innovators


IRE teachers are the spearhead of success in learning religious education at schools. Curriculum changes will not have much impact on the quality of learning, if the quality of teachers is not improved. The strategy taken is to improve the performance and quality work of teachers, because the function of teachers are not only as an educator and facilitator, but also acts as an innovator in education. Innovators are not only means “changing” but also presents something that is really new and able to make the old things become new existence in context to the present. So innovative teachers are required and have a good performance, not only physically but also responsibility and performance, so as to improve the quality of education and special learning in Islamic religious education.

Spiritualitas Tempat Kerja (Kerja Cerdas, Keras dan Ikhlas)

cover depan buku spiritualitas tempat kerja

Kajian dalam buku ini diawali dengan fenomena yang akhir-akhir ini muncul, yakni kerja berbasis finger print (sidik jari). Model ini berkembang tidak hanya di dunia industri tetapi juga bagi ASN (Aparat Sipil Negara)/Pagawa Negeri Sipil (PNS). Workplace Spirituality bukan hanya hal yang terkait dengan hubungan manusia dengan Tuhan, tetapi nilai spiritualitas itulah yang melandasi orang bekerja. Dalam konteks bekerja orang seringkali kehilangan maknanya selain hanya mendapatkan uang (money) dan keuntungan, maka penting sekali bagi seorang pekerja menemukan makna hidup yang hakiki dari pekerjaannya itu, sehingga muncul sikap senang, bahagia, jujur, disiplin dan bertanggung jawab. Maka bekerja itu harus jujur, ikhlas sebagai perwujudan dari spiritualitas yg ada dalam dirinya.
