    The main purpose of this study was to analyze factors that affect quality education in Indonesia. Although ordinary least square (OLS) regression is very popular in the analysis of the relationship between independent variables and dependent variablse, it is less than perfect when data are contaminated by outliers. Therefore, a robust approach is applied to face the problem of outliers due to its ability to down-weight the outlier influences. Results reveal that M-estimator of robust regression is better used to investigate the factors that influence the quality of education in Indonesia because it provides better accuracy.

    There is growing evidence that the traditional “instruction-centered approach” to learning is not producing the desired learning outcomes in students. Many institutions of higher education in Thailand make it their main thrust to enable their students to become critical, independent thinkers and have the sense of ownership in the learning process. Most schools have shifted the focus in the classroom from conventional teaching to facilitating effective learning. This study centered on the impact of adopting the “learner-centered approach.” Fifty students studying Industrial and Logistics Management at North Bangkok University took part in the assessment. The case study method was utilized and quantitative as well as qualitative data were generated with the use of a questionnaire and semi-structured interviews. Findings revealed that the implementation of “Learner-Centered Education” enhanced the learning outcomes and contributed to the attainment of quality education for the university.
