FPIK UB is Preparing for AQAS Certification

Workshop on Composing RPS and Course Portfolio held by FPIK UB Involving almost all PSP Lecturers

The Study Program of Utilization of Fisheries Resources, Faculty of Fisheries and Marine Sciences Universitas Brawijaya (PSP-FPIK UB) held a Workshop on Preparing Semester Learning Plans (RPS) and Course Portfolios. This activity was held on two days, Saturday-Sunday (6-7 / 2/2021), online, and was attended by the Task Force and 14 Subjects in Charge (PJMK) PSP-FPIK Study Program. This activity was held in order to prepare the study program towards AQAS international certification.

Presented as speakers were Dr. Wisnumurti, MT from the Institute for Educational Development and Quality Assurance (LP3M) UB. He conveyed, in the renewal of the preparation of the RPS, the Intended Learning Outcomes (ILO) needs to be considered, or the term in PSP is Graduate Learning Outcomes (CPL) which involve the roles of faculties and universities. For example, PSP must include UB educational orientation towards future glory.

“The ILO basically, or at least, contains three components, which are Disciplinary Knowledge Skills, Generic Skills, and Attitudes and Values. The ILO Study Program focuses more on Disciplinary Knowledge Skills, but it must contain attitudes and values content, ”explained Wisnumurti.

On the second day, Dr. Wisnumurti sparked discussions related to the preparation of course portfolios, and Outcome-Based Education (OBE) which describes clear important abilities, which can be done by students upon graduation. This is determined by the ILO or CPL of the Study Program graduates.

In the previous workshop which was held in August 2019 in Batu, PSP initially drafted 12 CPLs which were later shortened to 10 CPLs. As part of the curriculum equipment, each course determines a CPMK (Course Learning Outcomes) or also called Course Learning Outcomes (CLO) which is more detailed and can be linked to each CPL.

Meanwhile, at each face-to-face, it is possible to create Lesson Learning Outcomes (LLO), which also called Sub-CPMKs that can be measured or observed. Monitoring or evaluation of the CPMK achievements, as well as the CPL description of the study program, is carried out through the Course Portfolio.

The next discussion focused on technical problems related to the unit of the portfolio and the dynamics of the learning process that occurred in each class. As a continuation of the workshop program, the Head of PSP Study Program, Sunardi, has requested a PJMK discussion to continue updating the 37 courses in the study program from those completed in August 2019.
