Students of the Faculty of Health and Sport Science (FIKK) UNY join the International Educational Practice (PK) at UPSI Malaysia
One manifestation of the cooperation between UNY and UPSI Malaysia is the implementation of International Educational Practice (PK). UPSI Malaysia sent 33 students to teach in various UNY partner schools, while UNY sent 18 students from various faculties to teach at UPSI partner schools. Out of the 18 UNY students, 4 of them are FIKK UNY students, including Azriel Ardiansyah (Physical Education, Health, and Recreation), Riana Fauziah (Physical Education, Health, and Recreation), Rafi Fajar Susila (Sports Coaching Education), and Ilham Frimatara (Sports Coaching Education).
The four students were assigned to SMK (Vocational High School) Khir Johari and SMK (Vocational High School) Methodist, respectively. Students taught at the school according to their field of study during the program, which ran from December 27, 2022, to February 8, 2023. In addition, the students volunteered as coaches for the UPSI volleyball and badminton clubs.
Students first found it difficult to provide instructions in class owing to language barriers and cultural differences. Fortunately, with the supervision of Pulami UPSI and Dr. Norshilawati as the supervisor from Fakulti Sains Sukan and Kejurulatihan UPSI, students were able to learn topics that they did not fully comprehend, and the program is now fully operational well.(Penulis : Sinta/Ranin, Editor : Dedy, T:Rinjani)
