First of all, I would like to welcome you all virtually to West Sumatra - Indonesia. We are delighted to have you here to participate and attend the third International Conference on Education Development and Quality Assurance (ICED – QA) in 2020. Thank you for joining us. Some participants are from outside of Universitas Andalas, which makes us realize how important this event is.
This conference facilitates interaction among academics, researchers, and policymakers in this region through plenary sessions, lectures, and parallel paper presentations. Hopefully, everyone will get benefit from this event through sharing paper and experiences.
I would like to thank the Chair of the Institute of Educational Development and Quality Assurance (LP3M/Lembaga Pengembangan Pendidikan dan Penjaminan Mutu) Universitas Andalas, and the Organizing Committees that have been working hard to prepare this international academic event. This event is also a part of activities included in 64 years Universitas Andalas contribution to this country. I would like to thank the keynote speakers and the conference scientific committees.

Ladies and gentlemen, it is an honor to welcome all virtually to the third International Conference on Educational Development and Quality Assurance (ICED–QA) 2020, held by Lembaga Pengembangan Pendidikan dan Penjaminan Mutu (LP3M)/The Institute for Educational Development and Quality Assurance Universitas Andalas, Padang, West Sumatra – Indonesia.
The Education and Culture Ministry has launched a list of reformations called Merdeka Belajar (freedom to learn). The policy aims to encourage students to master various useful disciplines to enter real work life by providing students with the flexibility to learn outside their fields. It is also an effort to foster high- quality future leaders. As a response to Merdeka Belajar, higher education institutions must continue to play their role in educating the future generation and creating innovations. They need to re-think the academic programs to be arranged in the future. The plans must be a new, more flexible, practice- oriented, and using outcome-based education (OBE) paradigm.
Regarding this new situation, LP3M – UNAND carries out this ICED–QA with the theme “Quality Assurance on ‘Merdeka Belajar’ (giving students more control over their learning experiences).” The conference brings together academics and professionals from various disciplines to share the latest research findings and brainstorm new research ideas. I do not doubt that it will provide an excellent platform for the participants to exchange experiences and explore new ideas in these essential areas.
I would like to extend my sincere appreciation to keynote speakers: Prof. Dr. Ir. Marsudi Kisworo, Prof. Rozinah Jamaludin, Associate Prof. Chris Roberts, Dr. Abdulkhaleq A. Al-Qahtani, and Dr. Kiruthika Ragupathi for sharing valuable knowledge and experience. A big thanks to the organizing committees for their untiring efforts in staging this extremely worthwhile event. I very much hope all the participants will find this conference both stimulating and rewarding.
