Dokar: FIB UB Departs Three Lecturers to WU

Initiation of Collboration between Dokar FIB-UB and WU Thailand

Three lecturers from the Indonesian Language Education Study Program (Diksasindo) Faculty of Cultural Studies, Universitas Brawijaya (FIB-UB) went to Walailak University (WU) Thailand to initiate cooperation as a manifestation of UB Lecturer Works (Dokar) program.

They are dr. Trisna Andarwulan, S.S., M.Pd as chairman, whose members are Dr. Dany Ardhian, M.Hum and Millatuz Zakiyah, S.Pd., M.A.

On this occasion, the Diksasindo FIB lecturer team conducted a visiting lecturer with the title ‘Strengthening Local Indonesian Literacy for BIPA Learners’.

“We teach Indonesian local culture, especially those in Malang, to Thai students who are taking the ASEAN Studies program at the School of Political Science and Public Administration,” Trisna explained.

In addition, they also carry out institutional internships, internships to add insight into curriculum management, pedagogy and assessment in the faculty.

WU gave a good welcome to FCS UB. On this occasion, WU at the Faculty of Political Science and Public Administration, which was coordinated by Mrs. Pensri Panich, not only shared curriculum, pedagogy and assessments in the faculties, but also introduced the campus environment by holding a campus tour event for the Diksasindo lecturer team. .

“Moreover, WU also facilitated visits to unique religious and cultural attractions in Nakhon Si Thammarat, Thailand, such as the Phramahathat Woramahawihan temple, Khanom, and Kiriwong Village. In Kiriwong village, the Diksasindo lecturer team practices batik on handkerchiefs with natural dyes and makes scented candles and herbal scrubs from natural ingredients,” said Trisna.

The output of this Dokar program is the continuation of the MOU, MOA, and IA agreements between the two universities, namely UB and WU, especially between FIB and the Faculty of the School of Political Science and Public Administration.

“The initiation of this collaboration is the beginning of pursuing sustainable cooperation that is mutually beneficial and has a positive impact, both in terms of tri dharma, research, community service, and apprenticeships such as KKN and P4,” she concluded.

The Dokar Program was launched on National Education Day, 2 May 2021. The background for the formation of this program was the state’s demand that UB become an international standard university. The Dokar program is more about involving inter-agency collaboration. Program initiatives come from faculties or departments. [FIB/Irene/ Humas UB/Trans. Iir]
