Five Previous Events:

  • “Local and Regional Food Security Challenges and Issues” - September 16, 2014,

    As a country with the largest population in Southeast Asia, Indonesia has a high chance on issues related to food security. Indonesia’s enormous natural resources would be useless if not managed properly, especially the resources generated from agriculture, plantation and fisheries. Commodities of those sectors are major resources for the achievement of food security for its citizens, and also contribute to food security regionally.

    The issue on climate change also gives impacts on the decrease in the production of some commodities in the sector. This will certainly be a stumbling block and disrupt both the government and global programs regarding efforts to achieve global food security. In the local context, the use of agricultural and food processing technologies that are environmentally friendly can be one option to address concerns and issues regarding food security. Management and proper handling of the production result of these sectors are indispensable in order to bring sustainability without damaging the surrounding environment. To achieve this, of course, qualified human resources in the field of food technology are required.

  • Penguatan Tradisi Akademik Melalui Penyusunan Roadmap Penelitian #2 - September 18, 2014,

    Keunggulan sebuah perguruan tinggi dapat dilihat dari produktivitas penelitian dan publikasi karya ilmiah. Saat ini pergurun tinggi di Indonesia tengah berlomba-lomba mengembangkan tradisi akademik, pada umumnya, dan meningkatkan mutu penelitian dengan pelbagai skema dan program yang disediakan untuk para dosen dan penelitinya. Di tengah gairah penelitian yang semakin meningkat di kalangan para dosen dan peneliti, kebutuhan lain untuk memperkuat mutu penelitian adalah dengan penyusunan roadmap (peta jalan) penelitian yang jelas untuk para dosen, program studi serta penyusunan penelitian unggulan perguruan tinggi. Mengapa roadmap penelitian penting? Bagaimana menyusunnya? Bagaimana memproyeksikannya untuk peningkatan mutu penelitian unggulan fakultas dan perguruan tinggi?

  • "Membela Yang Lemah: Menggali Ide Pluralisme Gus Dur" - September 19, 2014,

    Dalam sejarah perkembangan teori pluralisme, terdapat satu diktum menarik bahwa "keterlibatan aktual dalam sebuah kegiatan terbuka memiliki posisi yang lebih valid sebagai penanda sebuah kepemimpinan dibandingkan hanya sebuah reputasi." Pernyataan ini terasa begitu mengena dalam praktek pluralisme di negara kita. Maraknya kasus kekerasan bernuansa agama dan semakin tingginya tingkat intoleransi di masyarakat menyebabkan sebagian masyarakat kita merindukan kembali sosok pemimpin dan negarawan sekaliber Gus Dur, yang tidak hanya pandai beretorika tentang toleransi dan pluralisme, tetapi mengambil posisi terdepan dalam pembelaan terhadap berbagai kelompok minoritas yang termarjinalkan. Oleh karena itu, ide dan pemikiran Gus Dur tentang wacana toleransi dan pluralisme seakan tidak pernah kering untuk selalu digali dan diimplementasikan dalam menghadapi berbagai masalah sosial-keagamaan yang muncul, khususnya sikap intoleransi dan berbagai bentuk kekerasan atas nama agama.

  • Interior Sumatran Malayic: Macro-Trends in Linguistic Change - September 26, 2014,

    The interior of Sumatra is home to a number of divergent Malayic varieties, among them Kerinci Malay, but also many varieties that have never been described previously. These varieties all exhibit alternations in the shape of the root, but they differ greatly in both the form of the alternations and in the function of the alternations in the grammar. Our research team’s comparative work on these varieties has revealed two diachronic trends in the phonological development of Malay in the region, trends that in some cases remained strictly phonological in nature, but which in other cases resulted in profound shifts in the morphology and/or syntax of the variety. The first trend involves incorporation of suffixes and the 3rd person enclitic pronoun into roots. The second trend involves the development of phrase-level alternations, i.e. processes which cause phrase-final words and phrase-medial words to surface with distinct surface forms.
    In this talk, we describe phonological incorporation and phrasal-level alternations in several varieties across the region and show that the phonological manifestation of these processes is quite diverse. We also describe how in some cases the interactions between these two separate processes have led to dramatic morpho-syntactic change, while in other cases remain phonological in nature.

  • Intervensi Psikologi Untuk Anak dan Remaja Penyintas - September 26, 2014,

    Latar Belakang

    Peran psikologi dalam penanganan bencana mempunyai posisi yang penting dan strategis. Bukan hanya pada saat krisis, tetapi juga pada saat pemulihan dan konstruksi kembali. Psychological First Aid (PFA) dan psikologi krisis menjadi salah satu model intervensi yang biasa digunakan untuk melakukan intervensi kepada para penyintas. PFA menaruh perhatian yang tinggi akan adanya kelompok rentan, misalnya saja anak-remaja, perempuan, lansia, dll, karena tentunya diperlukan pendekatan yang berbeda pada kelompok rentan tersebut. Kelompok anak dan remaja mempunyai gejala dan manifestasi yang berbeda dengan kelompok dewasa ketika mengalami stress, depresi atau mengalami depresi paska trauma saat menjadi korban bencana. Untuk itu ada sejumlah asesmen yang bisa digunakan untuk menilai kondisi anak dan remaja tersebut, misalnya saja menggunakan skala SDQ ataupun menggunakan pendekatan bio-psiko-sosial asesmen. Melalui kuliah ini akan diberikan pengenalan tentang asesmen untuk anak dan remaja serta pengenalan model PFA kepada mahasiswa. Learning outcome yang ingin di capai adalah mahasiswa mampu memahami konsep PFA dan pendekatanan intervensi pada anak-dan remaja penyintas, serta mampu menggunakan kemampuan asesmen dasar pada PFA.

Five Upcoming Events:

  • Knowledge Management Talk ”How to develop a good and highly accessible library” - November 26, 2014,

    Background
    Knowledge innovation management in libraries refers to the management of the production, diffusion and transfer of knowledge as well as of the network systems constructed by related institutions and organizations. It includes three aspects, namely, theoretical innovation management of knowledge, technical innovation management and organizational innovation management.
    Theoretical innovation management is to enrich and enlarge the theoretical and practical research fields of library science and information science through pursuing the latest development trends in library science the world over. Technical innovation management is to manage the network systems constructed by institutions and organizations that relate to the full course of technical innovation. In their evolution from conventional libraries to electronic libraries, or digital libraries, Libraries should make technical breakthroughs and progress and build up technical facilities to support knowledge management. Organizational innovation management is to create a set of effective organizational management systems adaptable to the requirements in the electronic library era to support and strengthen knowledge management activities, by optimizing the functional departments and operation procedures of libraries.
    In these systems, it firstly requires that leaders who take charge of knowledge management activities should undertake to formulate the management plans and coordinate all knowledge management related activities. Secondly, it requires establishment of special leading groups of knowledge flow for accomplishing all tasks relating to knowledge management activities. Electronic resources committees are established composed of various types of specialists to take charge of evaluating, procuring and creating the electronic resources on the one hand, and coordinating activities of business departments and spurring them on to close cooperation in such fields as procurement and organization of the electronic information resources as well as providing services on the other hand.
    In the end of event, we invite all participants to come to our book launching entitled Ekonomi Kerakyatan. Ekonomi Kerakyatan is the compilation of our serial discussion held during 2014 from several experts. This launching also meant to partners to join in our events so that the knowledge delivery goes broadly to communities.
