The points is about the condition and situation of lectures that will be faced by lecturers this semester. There are some things that must be understood, especially about new students of Communication Department of UII who are reportedly vocal and creative. “Communication students nowadays have been seen vocal since the orientation of students (Serumpun Event), many students ask questions and think when given the opportunity,” said Puji.
“Tomorrow there will also be four students from Thailand at Faculty of Psychology, and Culture and Social Studies (FPCS) UII too. Language problems certainly become a special note to help them in their future lectures, especially those who choose to enter the International Program class, “Puji said explaining the condition of lectures in the next odd semester.
“The assignments we give must be agreed to no more than four times, more than that students can get bored,” he added. In addition, Puji emphasized that lecturers are not permitted to give assignments as a substitute for teacher absence. “You should give a guest lecture (expert) or consultation class in lieu of your absence,” said Puji reading the rules displayed on the presentation screen.
The Head of Communication Department at UII also emphasized that student assignments should be collected on paperless principles. Aside from being a commitment to anti-plagiarism work, it also creates a campus that is minimal in paper and plastic. One of the lecturers who attended the morning coordination meeting also agreed on paperless assignments. According to him, even if you have to make assignments in the form of hard-copy / paper, it is better from now on lecturers asking students not to use cover papers from mica plastic material. “This is our commitment to realize environmentally friendly lectures, a support for the movement that is now echoing around the world about campus with a green perspective,” said Saifuddin Zuhri, the lecturer.
Saifudin Zuhri said, the commitment to an environmentally friendly life must start from the world of education and from the simplest things. Habituation must become an everyday academic world. Several other lecturers who were present also seemed to nod and agree. Puji answered and agreed with the proposal, especially Google classroom facilities or e-mail can be used to minimize the many tasks that use paper and plastic cover.
