Annual Workshop on Globalization of International Program of Communication Universitas Islam Indonesia

This workshop is an annual event organized by the International Program of Communication Universitas Islam Indonesia. Through this workshop, it is expected that students and participants who attend the workshop will be able to get an overview and more understanding about globalization and how to apply the values of globalization with the current situation.

The workshop this year will be entitled *Disaster, Media and Globalization*

The current situation that is very uncertain, both in natural and non-natural conditions and also the rapid distribution through the media, makes information and descriptions about disasters become a close discussion in the current context of globalization.

As told before, through this workshop, we will discuss more deeply how globalization is seen in the context of disasters and also the media.

IP Programs During the Pandemic: Keeping Up with Strict Health Protocols. The Covid-19 pandemic has affected many activities, especially teaching activities in schools and colleges of higher education. The Universitas Islam Indonesia (UII) is no exception, which has set new rules for activities during the pandemic period. One example is the UII International Program (IP). Activities here comply with the rules by complying with the Rector’s Circular and government protocols during the pandemic.

IP UII has one of the excellent programs related to global mobility or international mobility. Through interviews with the Directorate of Partnerships / International Affairs Office (DK / KUI), Dian Utami, many programs of global mobility are  still possible to be implemented online. For example Summer Programs, Internships, Lecture Series, Web Seminars, Student Exchange, and Double Degree. Bridging Program in the form of the development of skills such as academic and learning skills training is also implemented in the form of online lectures. The form can be asynchronous or synchronous according to the Circular of the Rector of UII.


Some were postponed, some changes from offline to online

In the Communication Science Department, especially the International Program of Communication (IPC), activities related to global mobility such as the annual Passage to Asean (P2A) program and Student Exchange had to be postponed. Even though they had received offers to implement the P2A program virtually, the IPC still chose to postpone the P2A program. The delay is carried out indefinitely.

“We still hope that there will be an opportunity to get hands-on experience in the P2A program. By going directly abroad. So, currently we can only provide tell to students regarding the postponement of several programs,” said Ida Nuraini Dewi KN, as the IPC secretary.

Various interesting programs with international insight still continue, said this specialist lecturer in journalism and media studies. IPC programs implemented during the pandemic, among others is International Webinar held in May and Career Webinar held in August. There are also Teatime’s regular Talk Show and  Annual Workshop with the theme The Future of Globalization which was held last July.

The Annual Workshop invited Assoc. Prof. Dr. Huey Rong Chen from the Graduate School of Journalism, Chinese Culture University, Taiwan. Meanwhile, the Teatime Talk Show invited Zaki Habibi, a PhD candidate from Lund University, Sweden.

If usually the Annual Workshop is held offline and is open to IPC students and the public, then during the pandemic period the program must be transferred to online. Ida said, in general, several programs such as seminars would still be held even though they were online. Collaboration and research requiring face-to-face meetings and overseas trips where possible will be carried out online.

International Programs in Other Departments / Major

Similar conditions also occur in the International Relations Department. Activities related to global mobility cannot be carried out during the pandemic period. Karina Utami Dewi, as the Secretary of the International Program (IP) of International Relations (IR) Department confirmed this.

Even so, several programs that have been planned and will be implemented in the odd semester of 2020/2021. For example a visiting professor from NUS (National University of Singapore) who will teach in IP for 1 semester. Other programs include implementing IELTS simulations for all IP students and providing mentor academic facilities. Academic mentors are to assist IP students in implementing online learning.

During the pandemic period, the programs that can be implemented in the IP of IR Department vary. For example the Bridging Program and Inspiring Lecture with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. There are also several guest lectures from experts in various subjects in IP. These programs are carried out as usual. The only difference is the form of implementation which is done online.

Even so, the implementation of the program ran smoothly and in general IP students were able to participate well. “Of course there are technical barriers such as connections. This is because most of the IP students return to their hometown. Not all of them have stable internet connections there,” said Karina when interviewed via email.

UII Internationalization Globally 

Dian said that this is understandable during the pandemic period that many programs cannot be implemented as usual. Programs that cannot be implemented can be transferred to other programs. In essence, other activities have benefits and outcomes that support achieving UII Strategic Plan. Including increasing the internationalization of UII globally.

DK / KUI provides facilities in the form of services related to the initiation of new partners proposed by the Department or Faculty. Partners come from both industry, government, academia, and society. In addition, DK / KUI also continues to play a role in delivering information by publishing international activities within UII. Whether it’s mobility activities for lecturers, students, and students.

Pandemi Covid-19 telah mempengaruhi banyak aktivitas, terutama pada kegiatan mengajar di sekolah dan perguruan tinggi. Tak terkecuali Universitas Islam Indonesia (UII) yang menetapkan aturan baru pada kegiatan selama masa pandemi. Salah satu contohnya adalah International Program (IP) UII. Kegiatan-kegiatan di sini patuh pada aturan dengan mematuhi Surat Edaran Rektor dan kebijakan protokol pemerintah selama pandemi.

IP UII memiliki salah satu program unggulan yang berkaitan dengan global mobility atau mobilitas internasional. Melalui wawancara dengan Direktorat Kemitraan/Kantor Urusan Internasional (DK/KUI), Dian Utami, banyak program global mobility  masih memungkinkan untuk dilaksanakan secara daring. Misalnya Summer Program, Magang, Lecture Series, Seminar Web, Student Exchange, dan Double Degree. Kegiatan Bridging Program yang berupa pengembangan skill seperti ‘academic and learning skill training’ juga dilaksanakan dalam bentuk perkuliahan daring. Bentuknya bisa asinkron maupun sinkron sesuai dengan Surat Edaran Rektor UII.


Beberapa ditunda, Beberapa Konversi dari Luring ke Daring

Pada program studi Ilmu Komunikasi khususnya International Program of Communication (IPC), kegiatan yang berkaitan dengan global mobility seperti program tahunan Passage to Asean (P2A) dan Student Exchange harus ditunda. Meskipun telah mendapatkan penawaran untuk melaksanakan program P2A secara virtual, pihak IPC tetap memilih untuk menunda program P2A. Penundaan dilakukan hingga batas waktu yang tidak dapat ditentukan.

“Kami masih berharap nantinya akan ada kesempatan untuk mendapat pengalaman langsung di program P2A. Dengan pergi langsung ke luar negeri. Maka, saat ini kami cuma bisa memberikan pemahaman kepada mahasiswa terkait penundaan beberapa program,” ujar Ida Nuraini Dewi KN, selaku sekretaris IPC.

Beragam program menarik berwawasan internasional tetap berlanjut kata  Dosen Spesialis kajian Jurnalisme dan Media ini. Program-program IPC yang dilaksanakan selama pandemi antara lain International Webinar yang dilaksanakan pada bulan Mei dan Webinar Karir yang dilaksanakan pada bulan Agustus. Ada pula acara bincang-bincang rutin Teatime dan  Annual Workshop bertema The Future of Globalization yang dilaksanakan pada Juli lalu. Annual Workshop sempat mengundang Assoc. Prof. Dr. Huey Rong Chen dari Graduate School of Journalism, Chinese Culture University, Taiwan. Sedangkan Talk Show Teatime sempat mengundang Zaki Habibi, PhD kandidat dari Lund University, Swedia.

Apabila biasanya Annual Workshop dilaksanakan secara luring dan terbuka untuk mahasiswa IPC dan umum, maka selama masa pandemi program tersebut harus dialihkan ke media daring. Ida mengatakan, secara umum beberapa program seperti seminar tetap akan dilaksanakan meskipun secara daring. Kerjasama dan riset yang memerlukan pertemuan tatap muka dan perjalanan luar negeri pun apabila memungkinkan akan dilaksanakan secara daring.

Program internasional di Jurusan/ Prodi Lain

Kondisi serupa juga terjadi pada Program Studi Hubungan Internasional (HI) UII. Kegiatan yang berkaitan dengan global mobility tidak dapat dilaksanakan selama masa pandemi. Karina Utami Dewi, selaku Sekretaris Program Studi International Program (IP) Hubungan Internasional (HI) mengkonfirmasi hal tersebut. Meskipun begitu, beberapa program yang telah direncanakan dan akan dilaksanakan pada semester ganjil 2020/2021 tetap berlanjut. Contohnya visiting professor dari NUS (National University of Singapore) yang akan mengajar di IP selama 1 semester. Program lainnya misalnya pelaksanaan simulasi IELTS bagi seluruh mahasiswa IP dan  pemberian fasilitas akademik mentor. Akademik mentor adalah sebagai pendamping mahasiswa IP dalam melaksanakan pembelajaran daring.

Selama masa pandemi program yang dapat terlaksana di IP HI beragam. Misalnya Bridging Program dan Inspiring Lecture bersama Kementerian Luar Negeri. Ada juga beberapa kuliah tamu dari pakar di berbagai mata kuliah di IP. Program-program tersebut dilaksanakan seperti biasa. Bedanya hanya bentuk pelaksanaan yang dilakukan secara daring.

Meskipun begitu, pelaksanaan program berjalan dengan lancar dan secara umum mahasiswa IP dapat berpartisipasi dengan baik. “Tentu saja ada hambatan-hambatan teknis seperti koneksi. Sebab, sebagian besar mahasiswa IP pulang ke daerah masing-masing. Tidak semuanya memiliki koneksi internet yang stabil,” jawab Karina ketika diwawancara via surel.

Internasionalisasi UII Secara Global

Berkaitan dengan program-program yang tidak dapat terlaksana, Dian mengatakan hal tersebut adalah hal yang dapat dimaklumi selama masa pandemi. Program yang tidak dapat dilaksanakan dapat dialihkan ke program lain. Intinya aktivitas lainnya itu  memiliki kemanfaatan dan luaran yang mendukung pencapaian Rencana Strategis UII. Termasuk untuk peningkatan internasionalisasi UII secara global.

DK/KUI  memberikan fasilitas berupa layanan terkait inisiasi mitra baru yang diusulkan oleh Program Studi atau Fakultas. Mitranya berasal baik dari industri, pemerintah, akademisi, maupun masyarakat. Selain itu, DK/KUI juga terus berperan menyampaikan informasi dengan mempublikasikan aktivitas internasional di lingkungan UII. Baik itu kegiatan mobilitas untuk dosen, tenaga didik, maupun mahasiswa.
