Abstract

Komunitas Guru Belajar (KGB) is an example of a Professional Learning Community that has shown very rapid growth since its establishment in 2015. This rapid expansion is inseparable from the role of the Guru Penggerak (the organizer teacher) who are responsible for organizing and driving KGB in each region. This research aims to explore the role of the Guru Penggerak in organizing activities in KGB Bandung. Using qualitative approach, data were collected by various techniques, such as: participant observation, documents study, and interview. The research result showed that the Guru Penggerak collaborate to manage the KGB together and sharing responsibilities. The collective learning process is built formally through Temu Pendidik (Educators’ Gathering), both online and offline. Informally, the collective learning process takes place through free discussion in online channel. The learning atmosphere in KGB Bandung has been well developed. The values and principles underlying the KGB, that are: lifelong learning, empowerment, respecting differences, collaboration, and practicing best standards, have become the main attraction for many educators to be actively involved in the KGB. The members are the early adopters, while Guru Penggerak are the innovators who clear the way for teacher capacity building processes.
