Character education needs to be integrated into every course in the Primary Teacher-Training Program at Universitas Terbuka. This paper describes the development of a character education model which met validity, effectiveness, and practicality criteria in the sense of motivating the students of Universitas Terbuka to develop positive characters in tutorial of mathematics course. The research subject were 48 students from the second semester of 2012 academic year. The model consisted of Tutorial Activity Plans, Tutorial Activity Units, Student Worksheets, and Evaluation Plan. The research instruments were students’ activities observation sheet, tutor’s activities observation sheet, character model assessment sheet, students’ questionnaire, audio-visual recorder, and field notes. This research result showed that the model met the criteria of validity, effectiveness, and practicality. The model could also encourage the students to develop certain characters during the tutorial activities which were passion, habit of persistence, diligence, self-directed learning, confidence in unfamiliar situations, ability to collaborate in team work, active in tutorial, and ability to listen. In addition, the model could help the students actively construct in-depth understanding of mathematics concepts.
