“Unite Aspirations, Let’s Synergize to Improve the Quality of the Department of Chemistry FMIPA Unesa”
Hello chemistry majors ……
On Saturday, April 18, 2020 one of the work programs of the Department of Advocacy and Human Rights of HMJ Kimia Unesa 2020 was held, namely, SARASEHAN I. Which was held online using the Zoom Cloud Meeting application. Held online because of the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic which requires everyone to do activities at home and avoid any group meetings in person. The event starts at 10:00 WIB and finishes at 12.00 WIB. With the theme “Unite Aspirations, Let’s Synergize to Improve the Quality of the Department of Chemistry FMIPA Unesa”. This activity was attended by Chemistry Department students from the 2016-2019 class, the Unesa Chemistry Department Student Association committee in 2020, and the Chemistry Department Unesa lecturer, this activity was attended by 22 participants, 15 committees, 7 lecturers, and 2 DPM FMIPA Unesa. The activity began with the preparation of the committee, then the opening, remarks by the chairperson and chair of the Department of Chemistry FMIPA Unesa. Furthermore, the bureaucracy answered about the progress of SARASEHAN II. Followed by a question and answer session where students are allowed to express their opinions or criticisms about an issue related to policies and work programs of the Department of Mathematics and Natural Sciences then the lecturer in question gives a response about it. And the last is closing and prayer. Even though the event was held online, it was felt that it was running quite smoothly and in accordance with the arrangement of the event, although in it there were some substandard connection constraints.
After the question and answer session held in the Workshop I 2020 activities, the following results were obtained:
- Responses related to articles in the working time mechanism In connection
with the article, it was the chancellor’s policy that the thesis bill was not in the A5 bindings but was replaced with an article published in the journal. The technique is still in the process of discussion but the form of the article is communicated with each DPS. Although in the form of articles, it also still requires data to be included in the analysis. So, it still needs to be considered again related to the process of taking data during a pandemic like today.
- Response to the clarity of information about PKL
So PPL for students of education, PKL for non-education students and KKN related to outsiders already handle each of them. For PKL and PPL handled by LPPM, for KKN handled by LP3M. The schedule will be adjusted to the current conditions. Then the answer to the second question is the Platform is SPADA. That is synonymous with module-based V-learning. The flow in the SPADA is that the university must first make a V-learning first and must complete the 17 course material in its Learning Management System. Only then can it be shared at SPADA. There are still many V-learning at Unesa that does not yet contain. So if it’s shared on SPADA it’s still not possible. Students are allowed to search for material at SPADA.
- Responses regarding the transfer of the thesis to the faculty library have not been implemented
Thesis is currently still in the department library, from the department it still does not dare to move to the faculty library because of the limited
space in the faculty library and it is feared that the thesis will be left alone. The plan is for the majors later the thesis will be separated according to the field and placed in the laboratory. The pure study program thesis will be placed in a laboratory, while the educational thesis will be placed in the media room.
- Responses regarding the current grade takers
for taking the score of practicum courses in accordance with what is taught by lecturers online. Then the answer to the second question, the person in charge of the course, is to remind the lecturer to do online attendance at Siakadu. During the Covid-19 pandemic all students and lecturers were considered to be admitted. If there are courses whose attendance is not in accordance with the meeting, it is expected to remind the lecturer concerned to fill attendance at Siakadu.
- Responses to practicum activities during the Covid-19 pandemic. The
implementation of the practicum will be adjusted to the current conditions. If the conditions are really good then the practicum will be carried out according to the normal schedule. If until the end of this semester the condition is not good, then the practicum will be canceled.
- Responses about online lectures that have not been balanced between the provision of material and assignments in lectures
If there are lecturers who only give assignments, can be reported to the head of the department. Will later be given a reprimand if there are lecturers who do not study online. All students must also understand that not all
lecturers have the same IT knowledge. In the course of this online lecture, many lecturers have to make videos and have to cut and edit to be able to upload them. So all students are required to report if there are lecturers who do not study online but only give assignments.
- Responses regarding analytical chemistry practicum which is not yet known at all practicum
for analytical chemistry practicum is the policy of all qualitative analysis lecturers. So it depends on the professors lecturer. For analytical chemistry 3, the practicum itself is replaced by the relevant assignment, then part of it is entered into the practicum value in accordance with the same task weight as the practicum in the laboratory.
