Abstract

Education should be able to develop students’ 3Rs plus abilities which comprise reading, writing, arithmetic and algorithm. Those skills are required by the students to face their life. However, those skills seem to be not adequate since the era develops rapidly, known as Industrial Era 4.0. Therefore, every individual should also have 4Cs skills plus i.e., (communication, collaboration, critical thinking, creativity), problem-solving and new literacy (data, technology, human literacy). Thus, curriculum particularly higher education as the highest formal institution which is responsible in preparing human resources should guarantee those skills building or competencies which are so complex that enable the students to fight against the challenge in the forthcoming life. Therefore, it becomes an obligation to design a curriculum which warrants the development of character required to face any kinds of challenges, known as character education or general education. The current study discusses the model of general education model in higher education so that the study is categorized as R & D. This study employed the method of development which was adapted from and was introduced by Borg and Gall. The procedure of the study was (1) pre-development stage, (2) development stage, (3) trying out the product stage, and (4) revision stage. The development was done based on the findings of need analysis which was carried out at pre-development stage. Then, the development product was tried out to verify the feasibility of the product in the form of (1) the curriculum expert evaluation ; (2) instructional expert judgment. Based on the data analysis and the discussion, the general education which was developed named ‘Insan Kamil’ model can be integrated into higher education curriculum in facing Industrial Era 4.0.
