SEAQIM regularly collaborates with a variety of schools both within Indonesia and abroad. These institutions play a vital role in the research the Centre conducts, with some key SEAQIM projects such as the Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) program and the Mathematics Regional Wide Assessment (MaWRA), being planned, trialled and implemented with teachers and students from these schools. Participants of SEAQIM courses also apply the knowledge they are exposed to through teacher practice sessions conducted at partner schools in Yogyakarta. These practice sessions allow participants to see how a real class of students would react to the strategies they learned about during the courses.

Case Study: SD Muhammadiyah Sapen Yogyakarta

SD Muhammadiyah Sapen is an elementary school located in Yogyakarta. The school was recently voted by a group of NGOs, government agencies and members of the private sector as the elementary school with the “Best Improvement” in 2015 for school innovation. SEAQIM has contributed to the school’s innovative growth with collaborative projects, including teacher practicals being conducted for the Teacher Made Teaching Aides and Joyful Mathematics Learning courses and implementation of the DRR teaching models with SD Muhammadiyah Sapen students. SEAQIM also hosted members of the Institute of Teacher Education (ITE) from Campus Perlis Malaysia and coordinated observations and research interviews with teachers and the principal from the school. Additionally, SD Muhammadiyah teachers are regularly in attendance of the various workshops held at SEAQIM, a few examples including workshops on MaWRA, DRR, ICT for mathematics, and Realistic Mathematics Education (RME).
