Asssalamualaikum dan salam sejahtera.
Alhamdulillah, tahun 2009 telah dilalui oleh Institut Penyelidikan Pendidikan
Tinggi Negara (IPPTN) dengan jayanya. IPPTN ingin merakamkan setinggitinggi penghargaan kepada Kementerian Pengajian Tinggi dan Universiti Sains
Malaysia terhadap sokongan dan kepercayaan kedua-duanya kepada IPPTN
dalam melaksanakan tanggungjawabnya untuk memajukan institusi pengajian
tinggi di Malaysia. Terima kasih juga diucapkan kepada universiti lain yang
telah membenarkan Felo Penyelidik Bersekutu menyumbang tenaga dalam
menghasilkan kerja-kerja IPPTN.
Pada tahun ini, IPPTN memperbanyak aktiviti penyelidikan, penerbitan dan
pengantarabangsaan. IPPTN telah membantu Kementerian Pengajian Tinggi
dalam menjayakan Forum Naib Canselor bersempena dengan Persidangan
Menteri-menteri Pelajaran Komanwel yang ke-17. Kemuncak aktiviti 2009 ialah
IPPTN sekali lagi diberi amanah untuk membantu Kementerian Pengajian Tinggi
dan Universiti Sains Malaysia menganjurkan Forum Pendidikan Tinggi Sejagat
(GHEF) 2009. GHEF2009 telah berjaya mempertemukan 133 peserta dan 48 ahli
panel dari 32 buah negara untuk membincangkan pelbagai isu yang berkaitan
dengan pendidikan tinggi sejagat dalam konteks negara Selatan-Selatan.
Saya bagi pihak IPPTN mengucapkan ribuan terima kasih kepada Profesor Nancy
Jane Knight dari University of Toronto, Kanada kerana kesudian beliau menjadi
profesor kunjungan dan berkongsi ilmu dan pengalaman dalam membantu
beberapa projek penyelidikan IPPTN.
44
Dengan berakhirnya tahun 2009, IPPTN kini berada dalam tahun terakhir
Fasa 2: Pelan Pemantapan IPPTN (2006-2010) yang memberi fokus kepada
bidang pengantarabangsaan. Sebelum ini, IPPTN telah diberi nafas baru
dalam Fasa 1: Rejuvenate IPPTN (2002-2005). Pada tahun 2010, IPPTN perlu
merangka hala tuju dan strategi untuk fasa seterusnya.
Saya berharap IPPTN akan terus menterjemahkan isu-isu berkaitan dasar
pengajian tinggi dan menyumbangkan idea untuk meningkatkan kualiti
pendidikan tinggi di Malaysia dan wilayah serantau.
Kata Alu-aluan Pengarah
The Director’s Welcoming Address
Asssalamualaikum
I am very glad that the National Higher Education Research Institute (IPPTN) completed the year 2009 with much success. IPPTN would like to express its utmost gratitude
to the Ministry of Higher Education (MoHE) and Universiti Sains Malaysia for their support and having faith in IPPTN to fulfill the responsibility of developing higher
education in Malaysia. Further, I would like to express my sincere thanks to the other universities in Malaysia for permitting the Associate Research Fellows to contribute
to the vision and mission of IPPTN towards the broader goal of strengthening higher education in Malaysia and beyond.
This year, conference, research, publication and internationalisation activities increased significantly. IPPTN assisted the MoHE in successfully holding the ViceChancellors’ Forum in conjunction with the 17th Commonwealth Ministers of Education Conference. Further, IPPTN rendered its services to assist the MoHE and Universiti
Sains Malaysia in organising the Global Higher Education Forum 2009 (GHEF2009). GHEF2009 was successful in bringing together 133 participants and 48 panel members
from across 32 countries to deliberate on various contemporary higher education issues in the south-south context.
On behalf of IPPTN, I would like to thank Professor Nancy Jane Knight from the University of Toronto, Canada for accepting the invitation to be a visiting professor and for
sharing her knowledge and experience in a number of research projects.
As the year 2009 comes to an end, IPPTN will step into the last year of the 2nd phase, the IPPTN Stabilisation Plan (2006–2010), which focuses on the area of internationalisation.
Prior to that, IPPTN was revitalised after completing the 1st phase: Rejuvenate IPPTN (2002–2005). In the year 2010, IPPTN has to determine the direction and strategy for the
subsequent phase of its growth and development.
It is my earnest hope that IPPTN will continue to conceptualise, lead and deliberate on key issues related to higher education policy in its efforts to enhance the quality
of higher education in Malaysia and the region.

Institut Penyelidikan Pendidikan Tinggi Negara (IPPTN) telah ditubuhkan oleh Majlis Pendidikan
Tinggi Negara dan dilancarkan secara rasmi pada 21 Ogos 2007. IPPTN menjalankan kajian
yang relevan bagi membantu usaha membangunkan dan memajukan institusi pengajian
tinggi awam (IPTA) dan institusi pengajian tinggi swasta (IPTS) ke arah kecemerlangan
dalam bidang pengajaran, penerbitan dan penyelidikan. Walaupun berlokasi di Universiti
Sains Malaysia, IPPTN telah berjaya melibatkan penyelidik dan institusi pengajian tinggi lain
dalam penyelidikan yang dijalankan.
Tujuan IPPTN ditubuhkan adalah untuk memperkukuh dan memperluas usaha penyelidikan
dalam semua aspek penyelidikan tinggi yang meliputi dasar pendidikan, kurikulum,
pentadbiran, sumber manusia dan guna tenaga, infrastruktur dan perkongsiannya. Selain
itu, IPPTN turut terlibat secara aktif dalam aktiviti pengantarabangsaan. IPPTN juga sering
dijemput oleh institusi atau pusat penyelidikan dan pengurusan pendidikan tinggi di luar
negara untuk terlibat sama dalam penyelidikan yang berfokuskan kajian perbandingan.
Diharapkan dapatan penyelidikan IPPTN dapat dimanfaatkan oleh pihak yang
bertanggungjawab di Malaysia untuk menyediakan perancangan yang lebih mantap.
Dalam hal ini, secara langsung IPPTN bertindak sebagai kumpulan pemikir kepada Jabatan
Pengajian Tinggi.

Seminar on Innovation and Universities: The Pillars for Regional
Development
Satu seminar Innovation and Universities: The Pillars for Regional Development
telah diadakan di Bilik Persidangan, Kompleks EUREKA, USAINS pada 4 Februari
2009. Profesor Morshidi Sirat, Pengarah Institut Penyelidikan Pendidikan Tinggi
Negara (IPPTN) telah memberi ucapan alu-aluan untuk memperkenalkan
pembentang seminar, Profesor Aurilla Aurelie Bechina Arntzen. Profesor Aurilla
ialah profesor kunjungan di Bangkok University, Thailand. Beliau mempunyai
pengalaman yang luas dalam pengajaran dan penyelidikan teknologi
maklumat yang berfokus kepada pembangunan sistem ilmu pengetahuan.
Pembentangan beliau berkisar kepada Pengurusan Ilmu Pengetahuan atau
Knowledge Management (KM) yang dipercayai dapat mempengaruhi inovasi
dalam sesebuah organisasi. Secara am, institusi penyelidikan ialah pengeluar
ilmu pengetahuan baru. Oleh itu, institusi penyelidikanlah yang harus
menyumbangkan tenaga secara aktif terhadap pembangunan wilayah. Beliau
memberi contoh model dari negara Eropah dan Thailand dalam pengurusan
ilmu pengetahuan yang dikaitkan dengan keupayaan inovasi. Beliau juga
percaya bahawa sekiranya ilmu baru dihasilkan, satu sistem pengurusan
ilmu pengetahuan yang amat efektif wajib diwujudkan untuk memastikan
ilmu tersebut dialirkan dengan lancar dan disebarkan dengan adil kepada
masyarakat.
A seminar on Innovation and Universities: The Pillars for Regional Development
was held at the Conference Room, EUREKA Complex, USAINS on 4 February
2009. Professor Morshidi Sirat, Director of the National Higher Education
Research Institute (IPPTN), gave a welcoming speech to introduce the speaker
of the seminar, Professor Aurilla Aurelie Bechina Arntzen. Professor Aurilla is a
visiting professor at Bangkok University, Thailand. She has wide experience in
teaching and research in information technology focusing on the development
of knowledge systems. Her presentation focused on Knowledge Management
(KM) which is believed to foster innovation in organisations. Basically, it is argued
that research institutions are knowledge generators in terms of producing new
knowledge. Therefore, research institutions should contribute actively to regional
growth. Professor Aurilla presented on KM with examples from the European
and Thailand models where she linked the concepts of KM with innovation
capability. She believes that as long as new knowledge is being produced, a
highly effective KM system is pivotal to ensure a smooth flow and fair distribution
of knowledge to society.
Seminar tersebut dihadiri oleh ahli akademik dan pelajar pascasiswazah
Universiti Sains Malaysia. Satu sesi soal jawab dibuka kepada semua hadirin
selepas pembentangan Profesor Aurilla.
16
The seminar was attended mainly by academics and postgraduate students
from Universiti Sains Malaysia. A question and answer sesssion was open to
attendees after Professor Aurilla’s presentation.

Sesi Pembentangan Tentang Isu-isu Kualiti Pendidikan Tinggi
Presentation Session on Higher Education Quality Issues
Satu sesi pembentangan telah diadakan untuk Profesor Hitendra Pillay semasa
beliau berkunjung ke Institut Penyelidikan Pendidikan Tinggi Negara (IPPTN).
Objektif beliau adalah untuk mewujudkan jaringan bagi projek penyelidikan
usaha sama pada masa hadapan. Sesi tersebut diadakan pada 13 April 2009 di
Bilik Persidangan, Kompleks EUREKA, USAINS.
A presentation session was organised for Professor Hitendra Pillay during his visit
to the National Higher Education Research Institute (IPPTN) with the objective
of establishing networks for collaborative research projects in the future. The
session was held on 13 April 2010 at the Conference Room, EUREKA Complex,
USAINS.
Profesor Hitendra ialah profesor penyelidik di Queensland University of
Technology (QUT), Brisbane, Australia. Beliau pernah menjadi konsultan
projek dan staf di negara-negara membangun di bawah Bank Dunia, Asian
Development Bank (ADB) dan AusAid. Bidang pengkhususan beliau adalah
berkaitan dengan kognitif dan pembelajaran manusia atau dikenali sebagai
sistem pembelajaran. Tujuan beliau berkunjung ke IPPTN adalah untuk melihat
kemungkinan mewujudkan penyelidikan bersama dalam bidang jaminan
kualiti pengajian tinggi. Beliau berharap dapat berkolaborasi dengan
penyelidik Malaysia sekurang-kurangnya dalam satu projek yang melibatkan
pengongsian dana antara kerajaan kedua-dua negara. Selain itu, beliau juga
ingin mewujudkan jaringan dengan mereka yang berminat dalam pengajian
tinggi ASEAN. Memandangkan sistem penarafan universiti semakin mendapat
perhatian, Profesor Hitendra juga berhasrat untuk mengetahui sajauh mana
Malaysia dan Australia boleh memberi sumbangan terhadap jaminan kualiti
pengajian tinggi. Kini, beliau terlibat dalam projek penarafan liga ASEAN dan
bersama-sama rakan sekerjanya dari QUT, sedang menjalankan kajian tentang
isu kualiti pengajian tinggi di universiti ASEAN.
Professor Hitendra is a research professor at Queensland University of Technology
(QUT) in Brisbane, Australia. He has worked in many developing countries as
both project and staff consultant for the World Bank, Asian Development Bank
(ADB) and AusAid. His main area of interest is related to human cognition and
learning or the learning systems. The main concern of his visit was to explore
the possibilities for joint Australian/Malaysian research on quality assurance in
higher education. He was hoping to collaborate with Malaysian researchers
to develop at least a project which would involve the governments of both
Malaysia and Australia in terms of shared funding. Apart from that, he intended
to establish networks with people who are interested in ASEAN higher education
specifically. With university ranking systems gaining more attention, Professor
Hitendra also wanted to look at the extent to which both Malaysia and Australia
could contribute to the quality assurance of higher education. Professor Hitendra
is currently working on an ASEAN league table project and is also invloved in a
QUT study on higher education quality issues in ASEAN universities.

Siri Dialog Strategik antara Malaysia dengan Negara-Negara Kemboja,
Lao PDR, Myanmar dan Vietnam (CLMV)
Series of Strategic Dialogues between Malaysia and the Countries of
Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar and Vietnam (CLMV)
Pada tahun 2009, Jabatan Pengajian Tinggi, Kementerian Pengajian Tinggi
bersama-sama Institut Penyelidikan Pendidikan Tinggi Negara (IPPTN), Universiti
Sains Malaysia telah merancang Siri Dialog Strategik Malaysia dengan negaranegara Kemboja, Lao PDR, Myanmar dan Vietnam (CLMV). Siri dialog ini
bertujuan untuk mengetengahkan Malaysia sebagai watak utama yang
menentukan agenda pendidikan tinggi di rantau Asia Tenggara.
In 2009, the Department of Higher Education, Ministry of Higher Education (MoHE)
together with the National Higher Education Research Institute (IPPTN), Universiti
Sains Malaysia planned the Series of Strategic Dialogues between Malaysia and
the countries of Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar and Vietnam (CLMV). This series
of dialogues are aimed to promote Malaysia as the main player in determining
the agenda of higher education in the Southeast Asian region.
Objektif utama bengkel dialog strategik adalah untuk menarik minat universiti
tempatan di negara-negara CLMV supaya menghantar pekerja dan pelajar
mereka ke universiti-universiti di Malaysia. Selain itu, Malaysia ingin menonjolkan
kepakaran dan kesanggupan untuk bekerjasama dengan negara-negara
CLMV dalam aktiviti penyelidikan dan pertukaran staf serta pelajar.
The main objective of the strategic dialogue workshops is to attract the local
universities in the countries of CLMV to send their workers and students to the
Malaysian universities. Other than that, Malaysia intends to share its expertise and
sustain collaborative projects with the CLMV partners in research, and staff and
student exchange activities.
Siri dialog yang pertama diadakan di Phnom Penh, Kemboja pada 25 hingga
26 Februari 2009. Bengkel ini dianjurkan oleh Kementerian Pengajian Tinggi
dan IPPTN dengan kerjasama Cambodian Directorate General of Higher
Education, Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports dan sektor pendidikan
tinggi Kemboja. Bengkel dirasmikan oleh Her Excellency Dr. Phoeurng Sackona,
Honourable Secretary of State, Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of the
Kingdom of Cambodia dan ditutup secara rasmi oleh Y. Bhg. Dato’ Profesor
Mohd. Yusof Kasim, Timbalan Ketua Pengarah (IPTA), Jabatan Pengajian Tinggi.
Perbincangan antara kedua-dua negara menunjukkan bahawa kedua-dua
negara berazam untuk menjadikan jaringan kerjasama ini berjaya. Satu projek
telah dikenal pasti oleh Kementerian Pengajian Tinggi dalam usaha membantu
Kemboja, iaitu melalui kerjasama penyelidikan pertanian yang meliputi topik
tentang tenaga pakar, staf dan pertukaran pelajar. Kerajaan Malaysia akan
menyediakan sokongan kewangan dan teknologi.
The first dialogue in the Malaysia-CLMV Dialogue Series was held in Phnom Penh,
Cambodia on 25–26 February 2009. The workshop was organised by the MoHE
and IPPTN in collaboration with the Cambodian Directorate General of Higher
Education, Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports, and the higher education
sector of Cambodia. The workshop was launched by Her Excellency Dr.
Phoeurng Sackona, Honourable Secretary of State, Ministry of Education, Youth
and Sports of the Kingdom of Cambodia, and officially closed by Y.Bhg. Dato’
Professor Mohd. Yusof Kasim, Deputy Director General (Public Governance),
Department of Higher Education. The discussions between the two countries
exhibited their joint determination in making the said collaboration a working
success. A project was then initiated by the MoHE in assisting Cambodia through
a joint agricultural research which covers topics on expert manpower, and staff
and student exchange. The government of Malaysia would provide financial
and technological support.
Siri dialog kedua diadakan di Hanoi, Vietnam pada 23 hingga 24 Jun 2009.
Bengkel dianjurkan bersama oleh Kementerian Pengajian Tinggi dan IPPTN
dengan kerjasama Ministry of Education and Training, Vietnam dan institusi
pengajian tinggi Vietnam. Antara isu yang dibincangkan ialah mengurangkan
kadar kemiskinan, keperluan latihan, penyelidikan dalam pelbagai bidang
dan perkongsian maklumat melalui pangkalan data. Dapatan bengkel
menunjukkan bahawa terdapat jurang maklumat antara Vietnam dengan
Malaysia dan dalam hal ini pelajar Vietnam mempunyai pengetahuan yang
terhad tentang sistem pendidikan tinggi di Malaysia.
The second dialogue was in Hanoi, Vietnam, held on 23–24 June 2009. The
workshop was jointly organised by the MoHE and IPPTN in concert with
Vietnam’s Ministry of Education and Training, and higher education institution.
Among the issues discussed were the efforts to reduce the level of poverty,
increase capacity building and training of manpower, identify research needs in
various fields and build collaborative information sharing through a database.
The workshop indicated a vast gap in information availability between Vietnam
and Malaysia where Vietnamese students have very limited knowledge on the
higher education system in Malaysia.
Maka, perkongsian maklumat antara Vietnam dengan Malaysia perlu

Tujuan utama kajian ini adalah untuk menganalisis keadaan semasa, iaitu
mengenal pasti tahap penerimaan Modul Kursus Asas Pembudayaan
Keusahawanan (KAPK) oleh pelajar institusi pengajian tinggi awam (IPTA) dan
institusi pengajian tinggi swasta (IPTS). Bagi objektif ini, tahap penerimaan
akan ditinjau dari dua aspek, iaitu keberkesanan penyampaian modul dan
kerelevanan modul untuk diaplikasi oleh pelajar selepas mereka berijazah.
Selain itu, kajian ini mengenal pasti faktor pendorong dan penghalang kepada
pembudayaan kemahiran keusahawanan dalam kalangan pelajar di IPTA/
IPTS. Kajian ini juga mengenal pasti dasar pada tahap makro (Kementerian
Pengajian Tinggi) dan mikro (IPTA/IPTS) yang dapat mengukuhkan proses yang
positif dan mengurangkan proses yang negatif dalam menerapkan budaya
keusahawanan kepada pelajar di IPTA.
The main objective of this study is to analyse the current situation, namely, to
determine the Entrepreneurship Acculturation Basic Course (KAPK) Module
acceptance level by the public and private higher education institution
students. For this objective, the acceptance level will be surveyed from two
aspects: module delivery effectiveness and relevance of module to be applied
by students after graduation. Besides the above, this study also aims to identify
the motivator and deterrent factors of the acculturation of entrepreneurial
skills among students in public and private higher education institutions. It will
attempt to identify policies at the macro (Ministry of Higher Education, MoHE) and
micro level (public or private higher education institution) which are believed to
strengthen and reduce positive processes and negative processes respectively
in moulding entrepreneurial culture in public higher education institutions.

Kajian ini telah dijalankan mengikut bidang
pengajian tertentu. Sebanyak dua puluh bidang
pengajian telah dikenal pasti dan akan dikaji secara
berasingan. Hal ini demikian kerana setiap bidang
adalah unik dan keperluannya lebih difahami
oleh ahli bidang tersebut sahaja. Semua kajian ini
masih dalam proses dan ada antaranya yang baru
bermula.
Research is carried out according to the respective
fields. Twenty fields have been identified and will be
researched separately. This is because each field is
unique and the needs for each field are defined and
underdstood best by the specialist in the said field.
All these researches are still in progress, and there
are a few among them which have just begun.

Pada 40 tahun terakhir, Universiti Sains Malaysia merupakan institusi pengajian tinggi
utama di wilayah bandar Pulau Pinang yang memainkan peranan dalam membentuk
semula susunan sosioekonomi, demografi dan budaya pulau ini. Terdapat tiga objektif
kajian ini. Pertama menyediakan latar belakang yang komprehensif untuk wilayah
bandar Pulau Pinang dengan menitikberatkan aset sosioekonomi dan budaya
dan pembangunan dan perubahan aset-aset ini menerusi masa. Kedua, kajian ini
menentukan setakat mana perubahan ini merupakan hasil interaksi antara pelbagai
kuasa di rantau ini, khususnya institusi pengajian tingginya. Dalam hal ini, kajian
ini mengesan perubahan yang wujud dalam wilayah bandar ini hasil hubungan
dinamik dan saling tindakan antara kuasa dalaman dan luaran dan interaksi antara
pelbagai aktor dan pemegang taruhan. Sehubungan dengan perkara ini, pengkaji
menekankan peranan institusi pengajian tinggi dalam membawa perubahan
terhadap susunan sosioekonomi dan budaya di wilayah bandar Pulau Pinang.
Untuk mencapai objektif ketiga, ramai ahli akademik dan penyelidik yang terbabit
dalam latihan penilaian kendiri. Dalam proses menyediakan laporan, penulis-penulis
ini melaksanakan perundingan tetap dengan pelbagai pemegang taruhan yang
berkepentingan di Pulau Pinang untuk memperoleh idea dan data yang berkenaan.
Diakui bahawa kebanyakan penulis ini ialah pakar dalam bidang sendiri, namun
begitu kali ini merupakan kali pertama mereka menganalisis dan meneliti aktiviti
mereka sendiri yang memberi impak terhadap masyarakat tempatan.
In the last 40 years, Universiti Sains Malaysia, as one of the leading higher learning
institutions in the Penang city-region, has played major roles in reshaping Penang’s
socio-economic, demographic and cultural fabric. This self-evaluation exercise
was undertaken with three objectives in mind; namely, first, to provide a very
comprehensive background on the Penang region/city-region, emphasising its socioeconomic and cultural assets, and the development and changes of these assets over
time. The second objective was to determine the extent to which these changes have
been the result of the interaction between various forces in the region, in particular, its
higher education institutions. In this regard, it was pertinent to trace the changes in this
region arising from the dynamics and interplay between internal and external forces,
and the interactions between various actors and stakeholders. In this respect, much
care was taken to emphasise the role of higher education institutions in bringing about
marked changes in the socio-economic and cultural fabric of the Penang region. To
fulfill the third objective, many academics and researchers were involved in this selfevaluation exercise. In the process of preparing their reports, these writers were in
constant consultation with various stakeholders in Penang, soliciting for ideas and data.
Admittedly, many of these writers are experts in their own specialisation but this was the
first time they were analysing and reflecting on their activities in terms of the impact on
the local community.

Kajian ini memberi tumpuan kepada segmen bukan universiti sektor
pendidikan pascamenengah di Malaysia yang merangkumi institusi
pengajian tinggi seperti politeknik dan kolej komuniti. Objektif utama
kajian ini adalah untuk menyemak penyusunan institusi dalam menerima
peruntukan pendidikan pascamenengah, menganalisis pertumbuhan dan
pengembangan pendidikannya dan mengkaji struktur pengurusannya
di Malaysia. Antara agenda lain kajian adalah untuk menganalisis pola
pekerjaan dan pengangguran siswazah serta mekanisme pembiayaan
pendidikan pascamenengah di Malaysia.
Keadaan semasa menunjukkan bahawa sektor pendidikan pascamenengah
bukan universiti amat rapuh. Oleh hal yang demikian, sektor ini memerlukan
sebuah sistem jaminan kualiti yang lebih bersepadu. Persepsi masyarakat
umum dan pemegang taruhan yang berpendapat bahawa institusi bukan
universiti merupakan alternatif yang lebih rendah jika dibandingkan dengan
universiti juga perlu diubah. Bagi sektor pendidikan pascamenengah universiti
pula, dicadangkan supaya sektor tersebut bertumpu kepada belanjawan
yang berasaskan prestasi dan berdaya saing.
Kajian ini jelas menunjukkan bahawa terdapat kekurangan dalam penyelarasan
dan usaha sinergistik antara penyedia pendidikan pascamenengah. Hal ini
membawa kepada cadangan untuk mewujudkan satu badan kebangsaan
yang dapat memandu dan menyelaraskan perancangan pendidikan teknikal
dan vokasional. Pendekatan rakan kongsi yang memperlihatkan kos latihan
dan pendidikan dikongsi antara sektor pendidikan pascamenengah awam
dan swasta turut ditegaskan.
This study focused primarily on the non-university segment of the post-secondary
education (PSE) sector in Malaysia which includes polytechnics and community
colleges. The main objectives of this project were to examine the institutional
arrangements for the provision of PSE in Malaysia, analyse the growth and
expansion of the said education and review its management structure.
Analysing the employment and unemployment pattern of PSE graduates as
well as the mechanisms in place to finance PSE in Malaysia were also among
the agenda of the study.
It was found that the current order of the non-university PSE sector is very
fragmented, and thus, a more unified quality assurance system is needed.
There is also a need to change public and stakeholder perception that the
non-university institution of learning is an inferior alternative to the university. As
for the university PSE sector, it was proposed that the said sector should move
towards performance and competitive budgeting.
This study also clearly indicated that there is a lack of coordination and
synergistic efforts between PSE providers. This led to one of the main
recommendations of the study, and that is to establish a national body to
steer and coordinate the planning of technical and vocational education. A
partnership approach to sharing the cost of training and education between
the public and private PSE sector was another recommendation of the study.

Peningkatan pengangguran dalam kalangan siswazah tempatan di Malaysia
berlaku disebabkan siswazah yang kurang berkualiti. Kajian ini bertujuan
untuk menghuraikan isu kebolehpasaran siswazah di Malaysia seperti yang
diungkapkan oleh pelbagai pemegang taruhan. Isu kebolehpasaran siswazah
selalu dibahaskan dalam konteks pasaran pekerjaan dari perspektif pihak
majikan. Walau bagaimanapun, kajian ini telah membentangkan sebuah
rangka kerja yang menekankan keperluan masyarakat. Dalam hal ini, dihujahkan
bahawa semua pemegang taruhan, iaitu pihak industri/majikan, institusi
pengajian tinggi, organisasi bukan kerajaan dan kerajaan, mesti bersatu dalam
menyediakan siswazah demi kepentingan masyarakat.
34
Kajian ini menegaskan bahawa kebolehanpasaran siswazah bukan sahaja
tanggungjawab sektor pengajian tinggi, malah tanggungjawab seluruh sistem
pendidikan, termasuklah akauntabiliti pada peringkat prasekolah, sekolah
rendah dan sekolah menengah.
Kesimpulannya, amalan pekerjaan perlu dibaharui melangkaui orientasi
keuntungan untuk memperoleh kekayaan. Perspektif ini harus disepadukan
dengan aktiviti teras universiti, iaitu pengajaran dan pembelajaran dan
penyelidikan dan perkhidmatan. Selain itu, Kementerian Pengajian Tinggi dan
institusi pengajian tinggi telah dicadangkan supaya mengkaji semula hasil
pembelajaran kurikulum supaya hasil ini dapat menanamkan atribut pekerjaan
yang kukuh untuk pembentukan sebuah ekonomi yang berorientasikan sosial
dan masyarakat berpengetahuan. Kedua-dua entiti tersebut perlu memberi
pertimbangan untuk memasukkan mode pembelajaran integratif kekal, seperti
pembelajaran perkhidmatan ke dalam program pendidikan mereka.
It has often been suggested that the rising unemployment among local
graduates in Malaysia is primarily due to their lack of quality. As such, this study
aimed to explicate graduate employability issues in Malaysia in terms of the
stakeholders involved. These issues are almost always deliberated in the context
of the employment market. However, this paper presented a framework where
the needs of society (not merely the employer) were emphasised. In this regard,
it was argued that all stakeholders — industry/employers, higher education
institutions, non-governmental organisations and the government — must act in
unison in preparing graduates for the good of society.
This study also made clear that the graduateness of a graduate is not merely the
responsibility of the higher education sector, but graduateness has to be seen
in relation to the whole education system including the pre-school, primary and
secondary level as well.
It was concluded that the practice of employment has to be reformed beyond
profit orientation per se to embrace wealth creation. This perspective has to
be integrated into the core activities of the university: teaching and learning,
research and service. It was recommended that the Ministry of Higher Education
(MoHE) and higher education institutions review the learning outcomes of their
curricula to embody the inculcation of employability attributes for a socially
oriented economy and knowledge society. The two entities should consider
incorporating lasting modes of integrative learning such as service learning into
their programmes.

The purpose of this study is to explore the potential of Malaysia in producing
quality human capital with a focus on producing quality teachers who are
believed to be the main actors in education. The aim of this study is to determine
a set of criteria that would act as guidelines or provide a generic framework
for the training of quality teachers. This study emphasises on the practical
application of the ongoing teacher training programmes.
The survey attempts to obtain feedback and perceptions from teacher
education administrators, education service administrators, teachers,
students and parents on the teacher quality in Malaysia. It is a collaborative
effort by researchers from several Malaysian universities including University
of Malaya, Universiti Sains Malaysia, International Islamic University Malaysia,
Universiti Teknologi MARA, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, Universiti Tun Hussein
Onn Malaysia and Universiti Utara Malaysia. Those involved in this study are
researchers and academics from different disciplines and diverse areas of
expertise.
The methodology used is quantitative and qualitative in nature. Respondents
provide feedback in written format to express their opinions and give suggestions
on ways to improve teacher quality in Malaysia. The open-ended questions are
meant to further strengthen the findings as opposed to only using data from the
survey questionnaire.

Monograf 13/2009: Kurikulum Universiti dan Keperluan
Pemerolehan Pekerjaan
Monograpgh 13/2009: University Curriculum and
Employability Needs
Apabila jumlah pengangguran dalam kalangan siswazah
bertambah, ada pihak yang menyalahkan siswazah sendiri
dan ada juga yang menyalahkan pihak universiti yang
dikatakan tidak menyediakan kurikulum yang bersesuaian
dengan kehendak majikan. Perancang pembangunan
sumber manusia perlu cekap dalam menangani masalah
pengangguran yang semakin serius, khususnya dalam
kalangan golongan yang berpendidikan tinggi. Siswazah
yang dilahirkan pada era digital ini perlu bersikap positif,
terutama terhadap pekerjaan dan alam pekerjaan yang
akan dilalui nanti. Kelulusan akademik sahaja tidak menjamin
mereka memperoleh pekerjaan yang diingini.
With increase in the total number of unemployed graduates,
there are parties who blame the graduates themselves and
yet others who blame the universities for not developing
a curriculum that meets employment needs. The human
resource development planner must be efficient in solving
unemployment problems which are becoming serious,
especially among the highly educated group. Graduates of
the digital age should have a positive attitude, especially
towards their jobs and future job environments. Academic
qualifications alone will not guarantee them the jobs that they
desire.
Laporan ini memberi maklumat tentang hasil perbincangan
yang mendalam bagi semua aspek, tindakan, kemungkinan,
cabaran serta peluang yang timbul sehingga terbentuknya
kurikulum universiti yang lebih berkesan untuk menghasilkan
siswazah yang dapat memenuhi segala keperluan
pemerolehan pekerjaan. Langkah dan cadangan untuk
mencapai senario ini juga dibentangkan.

Student Loan Schemes: Experiences of New Zealand,
Australia, India and Thailand and Way Forward for
Malaysia
Pengembangan dan pendemokrasian pendidikan tinggi
telah meningkatkan dengan pesat kemasukan pelajar ke
institusi pengajian tinggi awam (IPTA) dan institusi pengajian
tinggi swasta (IPTS). Pengurangan perbelanjaan awam dalam
pendidikan dan peningkatan pantas kadar enrolmen pelajar
ke institusi pengajian tinggi telah memberi tekanan kewangan
yang besar kepada kerajaan, terutama di negara-negara
yang kurang maju. Di kebanyakan negara, pengembangan
pendidikan tinggi memburukkan krisis kewangan yang sedia
ada dan secara umum terdapat tekanan untuk memulihkan
sistem kewangan pendidikan tinggi. Dalam perkembangan
pendidikan tinggi, pihak kerajaan tidak seharusnya diharapkan
sebagai sumber kewangan utama yang membiayai
sektor berkenaan secara menyeluruh. Isu utamanya ialah
siapakah yang harus membayar kos sumber pendidikan
tinggi, bagaimana pendidikan dibiayai dan bagaimana
peruntukan dana diuruskan? Banyak pendapat yang
mengatakan bahawa pelajar harus berkongsi kos pendidikan
kerana mereka akan memperoleh pekerjaan yang baik dan
pendapatan yang tinggi. Buku ini memaparkan pengalaman
lima buah negara, iaitu New Zealand, Australia, India,
Thailand dan Malaysia dalam menangani isu-isu berkaitan
skim pinjaman pelajar untuk membiayai pendidikan tinggi.
Pembandingan dan pembezaan pengalaman negara yang
telah melaksanakan skim pinjaman pelajar dengan negara
yang baharu bergelut dengan isu ini amat menarik. Penulis
menghuraikan tentang kebaikan dan keburukan pinjaman
luar jangka pendapatan dengan bentuk pinjaman lain yang
digunakan untuk membiayai pendidikan tinggi. Bab terakhir
buku ini membincangkan masa hadapan pinjaman pelajar di
Malaysia berdasarkan pengalaman Australia, India, Thailand
dan New Zealand. Hala tuju dan pelan tindakan ditunjukkan
bagi membaiki skim pinjaman pelajar semasa di Malaysia.
Massification and democratisation of higher education have
allowed tremendous increase in access for deserving students
to both public and private higher education institutions. The
decrease in public expenditure on education together with
the rapid expansion of student enrolment in higher education
institutions have somewhat created greater financial pressures
on many governments especially in the less developed
countries. In many countries, the expansion of higher education
adds further to the existing financial crisis, and there are
pressures to reform the financing system of higher education
in general. In view of the development of higher education,
the government must not be depended upon as the main
source of financing of the sector as a whole. The central issues
are who should pay the cost of resources that is required for
higher education, how should education be financed and
how should allocation of funds be managed? Many have
argued that since university graduates can expect better job
opportunities and higher lifetime earnings, students should
share the cost of their education. This book brings together the
experiences of five countries, namely, New Zealand, Australia,
India, Thailand and Malaysia, in dealing with issues on the
student loan scheme to fund higher education. It is interesting
to compare and contrast the experiences of countries which
have been implementing student loan schemes for quite some
time with others that have only recently begun to grapple with
these issues. The advantages and disadvantages of the income
contingent loan as opposed to other types of loans in financing
higher education are elaborated upon by the authors. The final
chapter in this book discusses the way forward for Malaysia
with respect to the student loan based on the experiences of
Australia, India, Thailand and New Zealand. Directions and
action plans are indicated with a view towards reworking the
current student loan scheme in Malaysia.
