Learning Mission

The mission of learning is in accordance with the study program’s mission of implementing a curriculum to organize library, documentation, communication and information discipline education to produce scholars who have excellence in the competence of Perpusinfo who are able to deal with the problems and challenges of ICT progress, devoted to God, have integrity, and are accountable to his knowledge Learning is done in the form of lectures, discussions, seminars, field practices and research on the final assignment with achievement indicators in accordance with the course syllabus.

Expected Competency Development / Training

In order to be able to improve the ability to organize an effective and efficient learning process, gradually the lecturers proposed to develop scientific research through the P2KBK (Competency Based Curriculum Learning Process) fund and held by the University even though they had not received a positive response. Achieving competencies by students is given through learning experiences such as practicing in completing case studies, practicing theory by visiting / practicing in the field.

Internal and External Efficiency

The achievement of the learning mission is supported by the involvement of internal and external parties. Internal efficiency in this case is human resources and facilities that support the learning process (SAP, syllabus and others). HR efficiency can be done by organizing HR in accordance with their fields of expertise and increasing the qualifications of lecturers to take S3 degrees and improve academic positions of lecturers to professors / professors. Likewise, the use of infrastructure is tailored to the needs of learning through standardization of SAP procedures, improving learning methods by improving teaching facilities.

Suitability of Strategies and Methods with Objectives

In achieving the learning objectives, it is necessary to select the strategies and methods used, which in this case are entirely the freedom of the lecturers. However, it was realized that the duties of more lecturers functioned as facilitators and motivators. The suitability of the strategies and methods of learning carried out in an effort to achieve the objectives of the lecture, requires the lecturer to follow the contents of the syllabus and SAP courses that have been made for each subject. The strategies implemented can be by giving short lectures, lectures or giving individual and group assignments, such as case resolution and preparation of papers presented and discussed in class. The approach used is student-centered learning or others in accordance with competency-based curriculum learning.

Conformity of Learning Materials with Objectives of the Course

The purpose of the lecture is included in the SAP subject and general objectives of the course included in the course syllabus. Syllabus and SAP courses also describe the learning material that contains the subject and sub-topics that will be discussed during the lecture period that are in accordance with the objectives of the course, so that students can achieve what is expected at the goal of the course.

Efficiency and Productivity

To maintain the efficiency and productivity of the teaching and learning process, the department conducts a monitoring system and evaluates the teaching and learning process, namely monitoring attendance through the attendance list of lecturers and students as well as lecture contracts at the beginning of lectures signed by the Chairperson, lecturers and students. The evaluation of the teaching and learning process is also always pursued by the department by distributing questionnaires to students to study the learning process from lecturers and distributing questionnaires to lecturers to assess the quality of the final exam questions, reviewing the learning process of students and reviewing the semester and SAP syllabus implementation process.

Structure and Range of Teaching Activities

SAP is arranged for 16 meetings, including midterms (UTS) and final semester examinations (UAS). All syllabuses are archived, with the aim that they can be updated in the next semester and can be used for each lecturer who will administer the course. The teaching activities in the study program are managed by the study program head who arranges the lecturers to teach according to their fields of expertise. During 1 semester there are 16 meetings for each subject with a length of teaching time in accordance with the number of credits. 1 credits equals 50 minutes face to face (in class) or 50 minutes structured academic events or 50 minutes of independent academic activities.

Use of Information Technology

The use of information and communication technology in learning in study programs, among others, through the use of relevant software to improve learning content and LCD aids to facilitate material access and discussion activities. In addition, students are provided with an internet connection for free to search for materials that support learning and broaden the knowledge that is being studied.

Student Involvement

Students are scheduled to attend lectures for 8 semesters including the preparation of the thesis. In learning activities, students are required to attend at the appointed meeting time, work on the assignments given by the lecturer so that students have learning experience, and follow the evaluation process to determine graduation. Monitoring student attendance is based on student attendance sheets every time they take lectures. Towards the end of the semester exam, student attendance sheets and lecturer activities will be summarized to determine whether the final exam can be carried out for the final examination and the number of students entitled to take the exam is sufficient. Study program policy requires that the examination activities for each subject be carried out if it meets the requirements for the number of face-to-face meetings 14 times excluding midterms (UTS) and final semester examinations (UAS) and students who take lectures have an effective presence of at least 80%.

Thesis guidance

Guidance for student thesis is guided by a thesis manual made by the thesis board. Thesis guidance guidelines are also socialized through seminar courses. In the thesis guiding process students are guided by two mentors. Counselor I as the main mentor in accordance with the field of interest of students and counselor II in charge of assisting the tasks of the main supervisor. Students make research proposals, conduct research and compile thesis. Thesis advisors are responsible for the originality of the research and its contribution to the repertoire of knowledge, mastery of the theory and depth of reasoning, the accuracy of the methodology, the systematic thinking and conclusions of prospective graduates and the thesis writing principles. During the mentoring process students carry a guidance form / card to record the issues discussed.

The number of students who are guided by a lecturer at the Perpusinfo study program is a maximum of 6 students: 3 as I Advisors and 3 as Counselors II. Thesis supervisors qualify for a minimum of S2 in their fields. The average number of lecturer and student meetings to complete the thesis is 10 times starting from when determining the thesis title to completing the thesis. The average completion time of the thesis is expected to be in the period of 5-8 months which is in accordance with the expectations of the curriculum that the completion of the thesis is for one semester (6 months).

Opportunities for Students to Develop:

  1. Knowledge and understanding of specific material according to their fields

To develop knowledge and understanding of specific material according to their fields, students are required to take compulsory elective courses that correspond to 15 areas of interest and free choices that are still relevant to the minimum field of interest of 6 credits. In completing their thesis students are given full opportunity to choose the topic of their choice with 6 credits in the field of specialization.

  1. General and transferable skills (transferable)

By giving the task of preparing an activity proposal, students will have the opportunity to develop general skills which of course can be transferred to others.

  1. Understanding and utilizing their own abilities

Students who are active in the CBC system will be able to take advantage of their abilities and be able to learn independently in order to develop their skills. This can be seen in how to complete the case studies given at the time of lecture that are tailored to each situation.

  1. Ability to learn independently

In the CBC system students have the opportunity to develop an understanding and use of independent learning abilities. In the implementation of learning students are given tasks carried out independently such as making critical review of a topic, giving presentations and seminars on topics that have been studied.

  1. Value, motivation and attitude

Giving assignments to compile papers with certain topics will give students the opportunity to develop values, motivations and attitudes. Students who have high motivation will be positive in working on the task with the hope of getting the maximum value. The success of the CBC-based learning system is expected to be reflected in the graduates of study programs who have high sales value (superior), full of motivation, independent and have an ethical and cultured attitude.

Assessment of Progress and Learning Outcomes

Regulations regarding assessment of progress and completion of student studies

The learning process in the Perpusinfo study program requires students to have high competence, therefore evaluating the success of taking a course in the Perpusinfo study program using the Reference Norm (PAN) Assessment with Scale 5 or with symbols A, B, C, D, and E with qualifications as follows.

Mastery Of Competence Number Scale Letter Scale
Exceptional A 4
Very Good B 3
Good C 2
Fair D 1
Very Poor E 0

The final grade of a student for a course must be determined on the basis of at least the value of two evaluations, namely the value of evaluation during the current semester and at the end of the semester. Weighting of each evaluation is left to the lecturer. Besides that it does not rule out the possibility of a lecturer entering an element of evaluation based on the soft skills of students in conducting learning.

Students are declared to have passed and formally recognized by the Perpusinfo Study Program after going through the judiciary and determined through a Decree of the Dean of the Faculty of Education (FIP). The requirements for Faculty of Education (FIP) students to join the Judiciary are:

  • Have passed the thesis exam with a value of at least B
  • Free Administration in study programs and faculties and universities (including free loans from the Central Library)

Strategies and methods for evaluating student progress and success

The strategy carried out to assess the progress and success of students is by providing socialization at the beginning of the lecture and its achievement strategy, establishing the prerequisites that must be met by students before conducting lectures such as starting college and collecting assignments on time. The method of evaluating the progress and success of students in taking a number of courses refers to the PAP standard and several other PAN-standard courses in accordance with the competency-based curriculum applied by the study program where the cumulative value is obtained by filling out the assessment form containing the assessment component and its weight. Assessment refers to the competencies achieved in each component in SAP. The assessment components include assignments, seminars, practices, activeness in participating in learning and assessment of UTS and UAS.

Determination of judiciary (qualitative statement of learning outcomes of a student at the end of education level)

Yudisium is carried out directly by the study program, after students complete the trial exam. It starts from holding a pre-judicial meeting by the study program manager by involving lecturers, study program heads and administration departments. The results of the meeting will be continued to the Dean of the FIP for the judiciary meeting at the faculty level followed by the students concerned, supervisors, study program heads and deans. In the judiciary, the graduation predicate is stated as follows:

GPA Range Predicate Of Graduation
3,50 – 4,00 With Honor (Cum Laude)
2,75 – 3,49 Very Satisfactory
2,00 – 2,74 Satisfactory

The predicate of graduation with praise (cum laude) is only given to students who can complete their studies in a maximum of 8 (eight) semesters with the value of A thesis exam and without the value of C.

Study of student satisfaction

During the learning process, students have their own impressions of the course of the process. To determine the level of student satisfaction with the learning system that has been held by the study program, then at the end of each lecture period students are given the opportunity to fill out a questionnaire regarding the study of the learning process from the lecturers prepared in the system built by the University.
