[Full Text]



Jamaluddin Ahmad, Nurlaelah Mahmud, Abdul Jabbar, Muhammad Ikbal



Teaching from home; opportunities and challenges; strengths and weaknesses.



Home learning since the COVID-19 pandemic has gained popularity in the field of education. However, there is little research that empirically examines the extent to which teachers are innovating using blanded learning experience weaknesses and challenges compared to those who interact face to face. A total of 99 teachers who teach from home in Sidenreng Rappang Regency, Indonesia were recruited for this study. The teachers randomly sent questionnaires via Google form for eight weeks, experiencing learning from home. An interview immediately follows a survey that measures the perception of the perceived experience. Teachers belonging to the millennial generation and generation X report more variation in instructional media than the boom generation, but overall experience the same challenges and opportunities and the perceived teaching. The principal's leadership strategy determines to teach success from home by increasing competitive and comparative advantage, investing to increase strength in facing opportunities, divesting to use force to avoid threats and subsidies accompanied by assistance.
