Project-based Learning for Kurikulum Merdeka: Learning for Sustainability | Workshop


Kurikulum Merdeka was introduced by the Indonesian Ministry of Education into schools in 2022, moving to a more holistic and project-based learning approach as opposed to didactic teaching for exams. Because of Indonesia’s decentralised education system and the self-directed nature of training resources, teachers in Indonesia are at differing levels of comfort and competency to acquire new pedagogies for the new curriculum. This three-day in-person workshop focuses on imparting specific project-based learning skills to primary school teachers, to execute lessons in line with Kurikulum Merdeka’s framework, particularly on the topic of sustainability education.

30 primary school teachers from across Bali attended the in-person workshop on 6, 7 and 10 July, and the final virtual follow-up session on Zoom on 8 August 2023.

The workshop was hosted in partnership with The Island Foundation, and conducted in Indonesian.

Core modules covered are:

  • Develop the knowledge, skills, and tools necessary for Project-based Learning (PBL) in line with Kurikulum Merdeka standards 
  • Integrate sustainability concepts into the national curriculum through PBL 
  • Engage students in critical thinking and problem-solving, with robust assessment of learning outcomes, through effective sustainability-focused PBL lessons
