Globalization and industrial revolution 4.0 provide immense opportunities for educational development. On the other hand, they are challenges for educational researchers and practitioner to innovate in providing an optimal learning environment for learners. Proactively developing our professionalism is a must in order to create research-informed innovation to our education system. We have to exercise reflective thinking to transform education’s challenges into opportunities.

Based on the aforementioned rationale, South East Asia Design Research (SEA-DR) and Faculty of Teacher Training and Education of Universitas Sanata Dharma invites researchers, practitioners, educators, and policymakers to reflect on design research role in addressing educational challenges through international conference with the theme “Improving Professionalism and Reflective Thinking through Design Research.”


Selamat datang di Yogyakarta – Welcome to Yogyakarta!

Yogyakarta with the tagline “Jogja Istimewa” itself affirms its special values; the city where the civilization on Java was born, the artsy city among the foremost cultural centres of Indonesia. The city has a number of incredible tourist attractions to be explored; starting from strolling in the magnificent temple of Prambanan, visiting the living museum The Kraton, indulging in the photogenic Parangtritis, shopping in the exotic Malioboro road, to trying the Gudeg—the typical food of this city.

As one of the most popular tourist destination, Yogyakarta easily reached from domestic cities and overseas. There is a lot of domestic and international flight into and out Yogyakarta’s Adisucipto International Airport. A regular train service connects Yogyakarta with other neighbouring major cities. Yogyakarta is also easily accessible by road in cars or public overland bus services.

Hosted by Faculty of Teacher Training and Education of Universitas Sanata Dharma, we are looking forward to welcoming you in Driyarkara Auditorium building, offering the perfect conference setting right in the centre of the city.
