This study investigates the optimization of Knowledge Heterogeneity among practitioners in higher education through the dissemination of diverse expertise via the Practitioner-Led Teaching Program. The research, conducted within the context of the Kampus Merdeka initiative, employs a quantitative approach grounded in the positivist paradigm, complemented by structured interviews with practitioners to bolster questionnaire item indicators. Data was collected using saturated sampling from a population of 30 educators spanning 29 programs at a university. Employing SEM PLS analysis, the findings underscore that the sharing of knowledge and practitioner expertise significantly heightens academic performance, as manifested by an 87% enhancement in shared value across learning activities. This research underscores the pivotal role of practitioner engagement in enriching educational quality and aligning curricula with industry demands, thereby fostering valuable implications for educational institutions worldwide.
