There are 51 young lecturers at University of Muhammadiyah Malang attended the training on Improving Instructional Engineering Skills (PEKERTI). This training was held in the senate meeting room on 6-7 November 2018. This training related to Law No. 12 of 2012 concerning Higher Education especially Article 4 that Higher Education has several functions.
One of them is developing capabilities and forming a character and national civilization that are dignified to educate the nation. To make it happen, the Academic Quality Control Agency (BKMA) organized a training for young lecturers. The participants were expected to be able to convey current learning that leads to the Industrial 4.0 Revolution Era.
"Lecturers have a very strategic portion to standardize the learning process. With this training, it is expected that lecturers can transform, develop and disseminate their knowledge. So the students can graduate on time with good quality," explained UMM Vice Rector I, Prof. Dr. Syamsul Arifin, M.Sc in his opening.
There was 9 main material presented in this training, namely strengthening lecturer performance competition, human resource development policies, academic quality policies, grand theory of learning, development of teaching materials, learning resources and media, strategies and methods of learning, learning planning and KPT, design IT-based learning and learning evaluation.
This material was also delivered by competent facilitators and not only at the national level. They were Prof. Dr. Ir. Noor Harini, M.Sc., Dr. Hari Windu Asrini, M.Sc., Dr. Iin Hindun, M.Kes., Dr. Siti Fatimah Sunaryo, M.Pd., Galih Wasis Wicaksana, S.Kom., M.Cs, and Dr. Endang Poerwati, M.Pd.
"The expected learning is learning which is dealing with the paradigm of today's universities, which no longer focuses solely on lecturers. In this industrial 4.0 revolution era, students become central in learning," said Head of BKMA UMM, Dr. Muslimin, M.Sc.
The participants were not only provided with material reinforcement in just two days, but also practice classroom teaching activities. This practice would be carried out in the next month with guidance, escort and supervision of the BKMA UMM facilitator. (ard)
