Taking place at classroom A of the Office of International Affairs and Partnerships, the evaluation invited thirteen representatives of Departments or Study Programs in YSU. Four reviewers were also invited in the program. they are Losina Purnastuti, M.Ec.Dev., Ph.D., Dr. Margana, M.Hum., M.A., B. Yuniar Diyanti, M.Hum., and Retna Hidayah, Ph.D.
During the evaluation, each department or study program representative met a reviewer for an intensive evaluation. “During the evaluation, the reviewers inquired into the details of the events and the processes in organizing the guest lecturing programs ,” one of the reviewers said. “Evaluation is needed to improve the quality of the implementation of the program in the future,” he added.
The monitoring and evaluation event was aimed at providing feedback and suggestions in order to improve the quality of the next guest lecturing programs so that the vision of World Class University can be achieved by the university of which motto is “Education is an Investment for Civilization.” (KUIK)
