KAPSIPI Provides Training in a Lesson Plan for Program of Governmental Studies 

Determining competency standards which students will have is essential in a teaching process. To achieve learning goals, Master of Governmental Studies of Universitas Muhammadiyah Yogyakarta (UMY) conducted training in a lesson plan of subjects at the program on Thursday (19/4) at a meeting hall of Building of Kasman Singodimedjo of UMY. The training was participated by governmental study lecturers of Indonesian universities.  

Secretary General of Indonesia Governmental Study Association (KAPSIPI) Dr. Agus Joko Purwanto, M.Si. stated that students’ outcomes, learning materials, student competence, and evaluation should be set at the beginning before the semester begins. “Indeed, the evaluation should be designed well since evaluation standards in the end of the semester are not in line with the outcomes. For instance, one of the outcomes is that students can ride bike, so that the evaluation should be asking them to cycle instead of answering what a bike is,” he emphasized. 

Agus told that teachers can use Bloom’s taxonomy to determine the learning outcomes. “Benjamin S. Bloom classified educational learning objectives in a set of hierarchical models, namely remembering, understanding, applying, analyzing, evaluating, and creating. The models can be utilized to set learning goals. For example, in a subject of Basics of Governmental Studies, students are expected to be able to understand and explain the state of the art of governmental studies. The evaluation should test whether students can interpret, give examples, conclude, and compare the comparison of recent phenomena instead of tell what governmental studies mean,” he conveyed.  

“Furthermore, there are three teaching techniques which teachers can apply, namely a hierarchal, procedural, and grouping technique. The procedural technique refers to a material delivery having several stages that students get certain material gradually. The grouping technique means that the outcomes can be achieved by giving different materials based on the grouping. The system of each material should relate and may not contrast one another,” explained Agus. 

Agus also expect that the training enables lecturers deliver materials well. “Therefore, students will easily comprehend the learning materials and the competency as well as outcome measurement can be more accurate,” he hoped.
