        Number of Departments
•   With 12 Faculties
•   44 undergraduate study programs
•   36 000 students
•   1 700 academic staffs
      Internationalization of Academic
                 Programs:
• The curricula would be of international quality or
  international benchmark so that degree obtained
  would be accredited, validated and recognized
  anywhere.
• Internationalization of curricula could also be
  accomplished through integration of international
  issues, concerns, problems or events in the course
  content as well as the area-comparative approach in
  the teaching of issue-based courses.
  Dimensions of Internationalization
Internationalization of Academic Programs:
• Academic mobility
• Joint study programs
• Broadening curricula
• Sharing of technological advances
• Inclusion of Global Skills and Competencies
        Structure of Curriculum
• UNESCO:
Four pillars of education:
  – Learning to know
  – Learning to do
  – Learning to be
  – Learning to live together
        Curriculum Development

• In 2006, Diponegoro University received a
  grant from Islamic Development Bank (IDB).
• As part the grant is curriculum development
  for all undergraduate study programs in the
  University to match with the
  internationalization of curricula which will
  lead to internationalization of graduates
            Academic Standard

• Ministry of National Education has regulated
  that undergraduate study programs across the
  country must have not less than 140 credit
  units and not more than 144 credit units to
  accommodate graduates’ competencies

             Standardization subject

• As Diponegoro University has had an MoU
  with National Body of Standardization,
  standardization subject is recommended to be
  included in the curriculum of undergraduate
  study programs in the University to result in
  supporting or other competencies
• Forms of learning:
  – Hardskills
  – Softskills
Positioning of standardization course
as hard skills:
• As a compulsory subject for all students in the
  department
• As a compulsory elective subject in one
  discipline’s concentration

This subject or course must appear in the
  curriculum and the suggested load is two
  credit units
Positioning of standardization course
as soft skills:
•   embedded in other courses
•   plant visits
•   guest lecture
•   role playing
•   discussion
•   workshop
•   simulation
Workshop:

• To raise awareness and understanding the
  importance of skill and knowledge in standard
  and standardization among academic staffs
  and to train future lecturers a workshop was
  conducted in cooperation with National Body
  of Standardization
• Workshop was attended by representatives of
  all Faculties within the University
Results:
When the implementation of new curricula were
  started in the first semester of September 2007:
• two departments in the Faculty of Engineering have
  had standardization course in their curricula
• the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences has
  put this subject into at least of department
• the Faculty of Law is introducing this knowledge by
  general lecture and embedded in some courses
• the Faculty of Fisheries is embedding this subject
  into several courses
      Curriculum update in 2012
• This year process of curriculum review and
  evaluation is being under way again to
  prepare revised curriculum to be
  implemented in September 2012
• This is a good moment to propose
  standardization skills and knowledge to be
  included in the curriculum of more disciplines
  in the university
