FKIP – Quality Assurance Unit (UPM) Faculty of Teacher Training and Education (FKIP) Sebelas Maret University (UNS) Surakarta held an Accreditation Instrument Surgery activity for the Study Program of the Independent Accreditation Institution for Education (LAMDIK) which was located in the Hall of Building G Postgraduate FKIP UNS on Thursday (14/7/2022). This activity aims to be able to find out and understand the instruments contained in the LAMDIK Accreditation and as a preparation for submitting or proposing the FKIP UNS Study Program for LAMDIK accreditation.

This gathering was attended by the Dean of FKIP UNS, Faculty Leaders, the Faculty Quality Assurance Unit Team, and all heads of the Quality Control Group (GKM) of the FKIP UNS Study Program.

Dean of the Faculty of Teacher Training and Education (FKIP) UNS Dr. Mardiyana, M.Sc., in his remarks said that the provision of study program accreditation instruments from the Independent Accreditation Institute for Education (LAMDIK) is different from BAN-PT, as well as other independent accreditation institutions, for this reason, it is hoped that there will be harmony between GKM, Study Programs, and UPM to find and observe the important points of the LAMDIK instrument. Therefore, it is necessary to conduct meetings or communicate with each other intensively in the preparation of early evaluation reports, especially regarding SPMI documents, activities, policies, and other instruments that must be appropriate and by LAMDIK’s requests.

“GKM study programs are required to know and control the status of the accreditation deadline in their respective study programs so that they can prepare for the re-accreditation process, both BAN-PT, LAMDIK, and international accreditation, because in the process of re-applying for accreditation, especially for LAMDIK, there is a time limit of 6 months before the accreditation deadline status expires,” added Dr. Mardiyana.

FKIP UNS this year, there are 6 study programs proposed for LAMDIK accreditation, namely the S1 Office Administration Education Study Program, the Mathematics Education S1 Study Program, the Sociology and Anthropology Education S1 Study Program, the Accounting Education S1 Study Program, the Mathematics Education S2 Study Program, and the S2 Language and Literature Education Study Program.

“With this Prof.Dr. Joko Nurkamto, M.Pd., who participated in the preparation of instruments from LAMDIK and at the same time as a resource person in this activity, is a very appropriate choice so that he can provide his knowledge and share related to the proposal and preparation of LAMDIK Accreditation which can provide important points in the instrument and the completeness of the documents that must be prepared”. Dr. Mardiyana said.

Furthermore, on the closing occasion of Dr. Mardiyana, M.Si., as the Dean of FKIP UNS officially opened the LAMDIK Accreditation Instrument Surgery event.

“Once again, we would like to thank Prof. Joko Nurkamto, M.Pd., who has attended and became a resource person, and we would like to express our gratitude to UPM as the committee, GKM FKIP UNS Study Program, as well as all participants who attended this activity, by the request of the committee for the LAMDIK Accreditation Instrument Surgery event, we officially opened it”. Added Dr. Mardiyana
