The Student Affairs of the Faculty of Languages and Arts showed commitment to provide opportunities for students to develp their research potential through a Student Creative Programs Training on Wednesday morning (18/02/2015) in Seminar Room of the faculty academic service building. The training presented a national expert of Student Creative Program, Dr. Rer. Nat. Ganden Supriyanto, M.Sc. and was attended by 250 students. The increasing popularity of Student Creative Program contributed to the number of participant. The Student Creative Program is part of the requirements for two scholarships for domestic students which are based on achievement and economic backgrounds.
Ganden further explained the types of the creative programs. “The types of the programs depend on the scope of activities or approaches used which include elaborating new ideas, experiments, implementation, and publication. However, he emphasized that the students should pay attention to the proper grammar and writing guidelines. “A magnificent idea should be delivered in effective language and based on a proper writing guideline,” he emphasized.
In addition, Ganden gave advices on preparing a proposal which could give a big chance to pass the selection process. “It is mainly determined by sense of usefulness for community,” he said. “The three key words are quality, originality, and sufficiency (approach, methodology and work plan),” he added. Other than Ganden, the workshop committee also invited M. Izzudin Mahali from YSU. He explained about proposal submission process and bureaucracy. After keynote speakers delivered their presentations, the students were divided into small groups to practice with supervisors from each study program. (Rony)
