Eight years ago faculty of Mathematics and Science of University of Education of Indonesia (UPI) was initiating the commencement of a conference on Lesson Study for disseminating the best practice of Lesson Study of SISTEMS (Strengthening In-service Teacher Training of Mathematics Education at Secondary Levels) in West Java. The Implementation of Lesson Study was started from one regency in West Java namely Sumedang. Then, it spreads into 16 regencies in West Java. The conference of Lesson Study had been well known as Indonesia Conference on Lesson Study (ICLS). The first through the fifth ICLS was held by Indonesia University of Education supported by the Education Departement of the Government of West Java that involved all teachers in West Java Province.
In order to build up the network of lesson study to be wider in the level of national and international, all initiators of lesson study in Indonesia agreed that the 6th ICLS in 2015 and the following years will be held at other universities in Indonesia. Therefore, the 6th ICLS in 2015 was held at Ganesha University of Education in Singaraja Bali. Since the commencement of the 6th ICLS, it was spreaded into the International Conference on Lesson Study (ICLS). A year later, in 2016 the 7th ICLS was held at University of Muhammadiyah Malang.
The University of Hamzanwadi will host the 8th ICLS which will be held on 14-16 September 2017. The theme of the conference is Professional Learning Community through Lesson Study for Promoting Students Learning. Attending the 8th ICLS, participants will gain invalueable frontier knowledge about education and pedagogy since the 8th ICLS has confirmed the attendance of the caliber international speakers such as Professor Manabu SATO from Japan, Professor Pete Dudley from England, Professor Carly Klein from Holland, Professor Siripaarn Suwanmonkha from Thailand, Sumar Hendayana, Ph.D. the pressident of ALSI, and Dr. Sitti Rohmi Djalilah, the Rector of Hamzanwadi University. Besides, the 8th ICLS will facilitate the experts of elementary, secondary, and higher education to share their experiences or the results of their innovation especially in teaching and learning that is specially developed through lesson study. The special characteristic of ICLS is that during the commencement of the conference, there will be a package of “school visit”. In this session, the participants of the conference will be led to visit the schools that have implemented lesson study. Therefore, the participants will get opportunity to observe the student learning through lesson study which guide the students to learn by utilizing the local materials. I as the president of ALSI cordially invite the policy makers, education stake holders, and education practitioners to participate in the 8th ICLS. The other advantage of taking part in the 8th ICLS is all participants will automatically become the member of the Association of Lesson Study Indonesia (ALSI). I wish the 8th ICLS in University of Hamzanwadi in Lombok can run very well as it is expected.
