As many as 1,400 UGM students joining 285 teams of grantees of Student Creativity Programme from Higher Learning Directorate attended a second consolidation meeting on Saturday (2/4) at Faculty of Psychology. They received guidance related to the programme implementation. All members of the team were invited this time along with teaching supervisors.
Head of Student Creativity Sub-directorate, Ahmad Agus Setiawan, S.T., M.Sc., Ph.D., said in 2016, UGM was the university with the most grants, or 285 proposals.
“We have arranged several programmes, including the consolidation, followed by internal monitoring and evaluation (monev) before a second one from the Higher Learning Directorate,” he said.
Ahmad Agus explained the consolidation was done to see the preparedness of the student groups for implementing their funded programme, also to monitor their progress.
“Following this activity, a mapping is done to know the difficulty and barriers facing the students, thus to find solutions,” he said.
The students were grouped according to their fields of creativity. Then, each team consulted with their supervisors who gave them guidance in turns.
