BANDUNG, unpas.ac.id – Standard Operational Procedure (Standar Operasional Prosedur, SOP) of Face-to-face Learning (Pembelajaran Tatap Muka, PTM) in Universitas Pasundan which was scheduled to be held in next July according to the Circular Letter of Ministry for Education and Culture is still being prepared carefully.
The arranging of SOP takes a quite long time since it covers a lot of aspects related to conductivity of PTM implementation. So far, most teachers, academic staffs and employees in Unpas have already gotten their vaccination shots as the effort in decreasing the spread of Covid-19 case.
Other than preparing human resources, Unpas Rector Prof. Dr. Ir. Eddy Jusuf Sp, M.Si., M.Kom., IPU stated that PTM will be going to pay attention to facilities which support health protocol; one of which is by designing IT-based thermo-gun (body temperature check).
“We are now preparing facilities and infrastructure and coordinating with various parties. In this case, Unpas wants to take advantage of technology information and design a computer-integrated thermo-gun,” he said at Unpas Campus IV, Jalan Dr. Setiabudhi No. 193, Bandung ont Thursday, 6 May 2021.
If it is possible, the IT-based thermo-gun will be equipped by features that are able to load students’ personal data. These data are to anticipate whether there are students exposed by Covid-19, so that it will be easy for us to do the tracing and prevent the spread.
“We also try to optimize the facility and infrastructure, room layout, increase our discipline and awareness of human resources within Universitas Pasundan, as well as other matters which can support the success of PTM,” explained the Rector.
He also continued that PTM will be prioritized for the class-of-2020 and final-year students who need to do the practice activities in the laboratory. This is only allowed for 50% of students; while the rest of them are still online.
“If it is possible to hold the PTM in next July, it will be announced later. We are still arranging the SOP and do not want to be reckless,” he said.
Preparing the face-to-face learning process in the universities in the midst of pandemic is harder than in elementary and high school. It is because there are a lot of students who come from another province.
“It needs to be reminded of, that re-opening the PTM is not only about keeping social distance or putting a face mask; but more than that, there are a lot more complex aspects that need to be paid attention to,” he concluded. (Reta Amaliyah S)*
