As an effort to keep and improve quality of teaching and learning process, Informatics Engineering Department of Faculty of Computer Science of Brawijaya University (FILKOM UB) held a workshop on Technique of Preparing Semester Study Plan (Rencana Pembelaran Semester/RPS), Saturday (29/Jul/2017). Head of Convener of the event Agi Putra Kharisma, S.T., M.T mentioned the workshop was organized in connection with the enactment of SN-DIKTI based 2016-2020 Curriculum. Attended by the entire lecturers of Informatics Engineering as participants, the workshop was designed in such a way to provide provisions to participants on RPS arrangement technique and practice it directly in cases of courses taught directly by each lecturer. The speaker on the occasion was Drs. Unggul Pundjung Juswono, M.Sc as e senior lecturer at Physics Department of Faculty of Natural Science.

Opened the first session on RPS arrangement technique, Drs. Unggul delivered that basic knowledge in related with RPS are including important documents on learning which are a combination of GBPP (Garis Besar Program Pembelajaran/Outline of the Learning Program) and SAP (Satuan Acara Pengajaran/teaching unit). RPS is then will be the reference on the formulation of the objectives and subject matter of the course content and learning method to achieve the expected competencies. RPS itself should contains of some important points. The first is a brief description on courses explaining the importance of the course to learn by the students.
