THE IMPACT OF LEARNING LOSS ON HIGHER EDUCATION STUDENTS IN INDONESIA: A CRITICAL REVIEW
This study aims to describe the impact of learning loss on students at universities in Indonesia who are often overlooked in educational discourse during the COVID-19 pandemic. Learning loss is only considered to have an impact on students at school. Whereas learning loss is a global phenomenon, which threatens all students around the world, both in schools and universities. The research method used is descriptive research method with a case study approach. Data were collected through questionnaires, interviews, document analysis, literature study, and observation. Then the data was analyzed adopting interactive analysis from Miles and Huberman. The results of the study indicate that learning loss that occurs in students affects student readiness, not only in the process of achieving competence and learning objectives at university, but also students' readiness to enter the world of work. As many as 87% of students are worried about whether they can get a job after graduating during the COVID-19 period. This concern is reinforced by the phenomenon: around 88% or 9 out of 10 companies are affected by the pandemic in Indonesia. Unemployment is open as much as 3.5 million to 8.5 million people throughout 2020, while Indonesia's economic growth in 2020 is minus 2.07 %.
