“At UNY, the monodisciplinary Masters and Doctoral Programs are managed by the faculty. In 2020, all Masters Study programs that are monodiscipline in Mathematics and Natural Sciences will be under the coordination of the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences(FMNS) UNY. Furthermore, for the doctoral degree, namely the Chemistry Education Study Program, it is still a Postgraduate program. However, this year it is included in FMNS. Furthermore, about a month ago, we received permission to establish a new doctoral program, namely the Mathematics Education Study Program and the Science Education Study Program. Therefore, we ask for the assistance for the development and quality improvement of the UNY Doctoral Program," said the Vice Dean for Academic Affairs and Cooperation of FMNS UNY, Prof. Jaslin Ikhsan, Ph.D. at the Workshop on Curriculum Development for the Doctoral Study Program of Mathematics Education, Chemistry Education, and Science Education on Friday, 21/1/22.

This workshop activity invited several expert namely  Prof. Dr. Cholis Sa'dijah, M.Pd., from the Universitas Negeri Malang, Prof. Dr. Anna Permanasari, M.Sc., from Universitas Pakuan, and Prof. Dr. Muktiningsih Nurjayadi, M.Sc., from Universitas Negeri Jakarta.

Prof. Anna Permanasari, in her presentation, revealed that there are at least 5 points that must be accommodated in the curriculum formulation. There are namely global developments (knowledge and technology), changes in HR development orientation (IR 4.0 and S 5.0), ministry policies related to MBKM, KKNI, Independent learning, Lifelong learning, OBE), university/faculty/study program needs (internationalization, VMTS changes), and tracer study results (needs for users, graduates, alumni, lecturers).

“The curriculum document must contain three main points: curriculum development, curriculum implementation, and curriculum monitoring and evaluation. These three points must be present. These must be developed by the faculty, not in the study program. Make sure that each document contains important points such as rationale, policies, mechanisms/stages/principles, human resources, and facilitation, especially regarding how universities/faculties finance/facilitate financing and infrastructure,” she added.
