Examination experience

I have been involved for several years in pre-service program for EFL teacher education in Indonesia (Teaching Practicum)  in Salatiga, Central Java and I find it very challenging as a teacher educator. Besides examining theses for English department students,  I also have had some experience in supervising and examining  theses of students who were doing their Master’s Degree at the University of Sarjana Wiyata Taman Siswa in Yogyakarta, Central Java. These students are school teachers who teach English in different cities in Central Java. Their theses investigate classroom practices and curriculum policy implementation. In addition, I also have supervised and examined a doctoral dissertation on English teachers’ perception of the introduction of School-Based Curriculum mandated by the Indonesian government.
