Winning the 2nd Runner-up of ASEAN Best Practices Competition for the Energy-Saving Building category at the ASEAN Energy Award 2018, UMM received the second gift. This time, the prize came from Djoko Sigit Sayogo, S.E., M. ACC., Ph.D. He won the First Place in the finalist election event for the Achieving Lecturer at National Level in Social Humanities field of the Ministry of Research, Technology and Higher Education, Monday (29/10).
Djoko, who has 9 international reputed publications, was presented with eight other finalists. The five finalists came from State Universities (PTN) and the three from Private Universities (PTS). Each finalist was given 15 minutes to convey the philosophy of research, teaching and service, explain the related research and achievements that have been achieved with the research.
During the presentation, Djoko said, he was tested related to his research contribution to the state and society. The man who served as Deputy Director III of Downstreaming & Commercialization Division of UMM DP2M Research and Service, admitted that he was very proud when almost thirty minutes was tested by the jury. In the Social Humanities field, Djoko beat Bogor Agricultural Institute (IPB) and Bandung Institute of Technology (ITB).
"I explain how we can reduce information asymmetry (the seller who has more information about the product than the buyer, red.) and increase trust by facilitating consumers to search information during the product supply through information technology," explained Djoko who is also a lecturer at Faculty of Economics and Business.
UMM has a Scientific Publication Development Institute (LPPI) which provides intensive services specifically for those whose journals are published in reputable or indexed international journals by Scopus. Therefore, said Vice Rector I in charge of academics, Prof. Syamsul Arifin MSi, the culture of UMM lecturers' achievements was not only judged by their scores in the academic field but also their contacts with the Human Resources (HR) field.
Syamsul said that he will encourage continuously all UMM lecturers to get achievements in internationally reputed journals publications. "Frankly, Pak Djoko's achievement exceeds our expectations. In the future, the teaching material delivered by the lecturer should be the result of the research he has conducted. That is what we call competent lecturers," he said. (*)
