Prodi Ilmu Komunikasi Resmi Terapkan Kurikulum Kampus Merdeka

Tangerang – Universitas Multimedia Nusantara (UMN) resmi menerapkan Kurikulum Merdeka Belajar Kampus Merdeka (MBKM). Sosialisasi program dari Kementerian Pendidikan dan Kebudayaan ini dilaksanakan pada Februari 2021 untuk seluruh Dosen dan pada minggu pertama Maret 2021 secara bergantian kepada seluruh mahasiswa. Sejalan dengan misi UMN, program ini dapat mendorong seluruh mahasiswa UMN untuk menguasai berbagai keilmuan yang berguna untuk memasuki dunia kerja.

Pada dasarnya, MBKM dilaksanakan untuk memberikan kesempatan kepada mahasiswa untuk belajar diluar kampus. Mahasiswa diberi keleluasaan untuk memilih kegiatan MBKM yang mereka inginkan. Kebijakan ini lahir dari visi misi Presiden Joko Widodo yang akan menciptakan Sumber Daya Manusia unggul sebagai upaya mendapatkan generasi masa depan yang berkualitas.

Di UMN, program ini akan diterapkan di seluruh program studi yang ada. “Universitas Multimedia Nusantara sangat mendukung program pemerintah yang sangat baik ini dan akan diterapkan mulai dari semester ganjil 2021/2022,” ungkap Wakil Rektor Bidang Akademik UMN, Friska Natalia.

Sebelumnya, kampus merupakan semata tempat untuk belajar mahasiswa secara tatap muka langsung dengan dosen sebagai pengajar. Dosen merupakan sumber utama bagi mahasiswa mendapat pembelajaran dan dengan adanya Kampus Merdeka, direfleksikan sebagai bentuk kemerdekaan mahasiswa dalam belajar, tak lagi harus di depan kelas yang sudah diagendakan bersama dosen. Mahasiswa diharapkan akan bisa mandiri dalam menyelesaikan berbagai upaya pemecahan masalah nyata.

“Di program MBKM ini, kampus akan memfasilitasi kebebasan belajar mahasiswa dengan memberikan kebebasan untuk mengambil SKS di luar program studi mahasiswa tersebut dan kebebasan melaksanakan aktivitas pembelajaran di luar perguruan tinggi. Program ini juga telah didesain untuk tetap memenuhi Capaian Pembelajaran Lulusan (CPL) yang telah ditetapkan oleh setiap Program Studi, tetapi dengan bentuk pembelajaran yang berbeda. ,” lanjut Friska.

UMN mengimplementasikan MBKM ke dalam beberapa program, yaitu: program magang, program kewirausahaan, program pertukaran pelajar, program penelitian, proyek independen, dan proyek desa. Sebagian besar program ini sudah diimplementasikan oleh UMN sebelumnya, sehingga infrastruktur pendukung telah siap untuk digunakan. Sebut saja untuk program kewirausahaan dimana UMN sudah memiliki Skystar Ventures sebagai program inkubator bisnis mahasiswa. Program magang juga sudah difasilitasi melalui Career Development Center (CDC) UMN yang berjejaring dengan perusahaan untuk selalu memberikan info lowongan magang, lowongan kerja, hingga menyelenggarakan job fair bagi mahasiswa UMN. Program pertukaran pelajar yang didukung oleh Global Office baik dengan Universitas dalam maupun luar negeri.

Kebebasan belajar yang diberikan untuk melaksanakan kegiatan belajar di luar prodinya ini diharapkan bisa dimanfaatkan setiap mahasiswa untuk mengembangkan kapabilitas dirinya, baik di bidang soft skills maupun hard skills. Program ini juga diharapkan dapat memberikan kesempatan bagi mahasiswa UMN untuk mendapatkan kompetensi tambahan di luar capaian pembelajaran yang telah ditetapkan oleh setiap program studi sehingga dapat menjadi bekal untuk masuk di dunia kerja setelah lulus dari UMN.

“Pada akhirnya, selaras dengan visi dan misi pemerintah RI mengenai program MBKM, penerapan program ini di UMN diharapkan bisa menciptakan lulusan-lulusan UMN yang unggul dan berkualitas, yang menguasai berbagai keilmuan yang berguna di dunia kerja, atau untuk melanjutkan studi, dan tetap belajar sepanjang hayat di tengah masyarakat,” tutup Friska.

History Of UMN Communication Science

UPCS is the first study program that has existed since UMN was founded. Previously, UPCS had two majors, namely Journalism and Public Relations. However, since 2016, the major in Journalism has developed into a separate and independent study program, while the major in Public Relations has been expanded to a Major in Corporate Communication. In the same year, UPCS also formed a Major in Marketing Communications. In September 2016, UPCS received a study program accreditation from BAN-PT (National Accreditation Agency for Higher Education/NAAHE) with an outstanding result (A).

UPCS has designed a curriculum in 146 credits that students can complete in eight semesters. UPCS focuses on strategic communication studies designed with two existing majors. Both majors require creativity and innovation skills, from the planning process, analysis to implementation and evaluation in various forms of digital media in the communication industry. This need led UPCS to initiate a collaborative learning model that was supported by special classes to develop student skills in collaboration, teamwork and problem-solving.

I’M KOM Gen XI Introduction Forum: Do Not Know, Then Do Not Love

TANGERANG – The Student Association of Communication Sciences of Multimedia Nusantara University or I’M KOM UMN run a new work program called I’M KOM Gen XI Introduction Forum in February 2021 with the theme Do Not Know, Then Do Not Love.

This activity is a new work program implemented by I’M KOM Gen XI with the aim of introducing I’M KOM to the KBM of the Faculty of Communication Sciences, UMN, especially in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic which made the KBM of the Faculty of Communication Sciences, UMN unable to meet face-to-face.  Also in line with I’M KOM Gen XI’s tagline, Together for Impact, the executive board hopes that through this Introduction Forum, the KBM of the Faculty of Communication Sciences, UMN, especially students, can get to know more about I’M KOM and can provide mutual benefits to one another.

Through this activity, I’M KOM Gen XI introduces all work programs to be implemented for a year, the incumbent members of the executive board, and opens discussion sessions for attendees who have suggestions and criticisms.  This I’M KOM Gen XI Introduction Forum was held online through the ZOOM application and attended by students, campus media, other student associations, lecturers, Head of Strategic Communication Study Program, Head of Journalism Study Program, and Dean of the Faculty of Communication Sciences, UMN.

Study Visit: Friendly Visit with HMILKOM-UB

TANGERANG – HMILKOM-UB conducted a Friendly Visit with I’M KOM UMN in February 2021.

To date, the world is still hit by the Covid-19 pandemic which hinders all aspects of human life.  The student association as a student organization has also been greatly affected by this pandemic, thereby causing all activities to be carried out online.  However, the Covid-19 pandemic has not prevented us from having a good relationship with student associations from other universities through Friendly Visits from HMILKOM-UB.

This HMILKOM-UB Friendly Visit activity consists of introduction of work programs, structure, executive board, and experience sharing from each student association.  Both those from I’M KOM and HMILKOM-UB told each other about the activities of each student association.  After the activity, the insights and knowledge obtained were then used as learning for I’M KOM Gen XI which was then designed to be actually implemented later.

One of the highlights of this friendly visit is the use of a virtual meeting platform or application that many people may not know about, namely “Gather Town” (https://gather.town/).

HMILKOM-UB introduced I’M KOM to the Gather Town platform which is simply a platform that combines video calls with 2D maps, allowing users to walk around and talk to other people.  In appearance and content, it looks like an old school video game with 8-bit video quality.  Currently, Gather Town is arguably a stiff competitor to other virtual meeting platforms, namely Zoom and Google Meet.  In the future, this Gather Town platform can also be an alternative to I’M KOM’s virtual meeting or meeting activities.

From there, PRIDE breaks down the theme into 4 competitions, IMC, MPR, Podcast, and E-poster. The IMC competition’s theme is “Start Up, Start Now”, as the competition is about helping UMKM or startups that are affected by the pandemic to make an integrated marketing campaign. Then the MPR competition, which theme is “Pass the Past for the Future ”, as the competition is about creating a marketing public relation planning for brands for a better future in this pandemic. PRIDE also offers E-poster and Podcast competitions which are open to the public. PRIDE believes that everyone should be given a platform to channel their creativity in the pandemic era. The Podcast Competition collaborates with INACO and the E-Poster with “Living Through a Pandemic” to visualize how we survive in the midst of crisis.

Aside from competitions, PRIDE also offers three webinars. The 1st Webinar about podcasts is “Will You Be the Next Podcaster?” presenting Jansen Utama as the founder of the Tulisan Alam podcast. The 1st Webinar talks about Jansen’s personal experience on starting a career in podcasts, how to be brave to develop ideas into a podcast, and tips on how to start a podcast. The 2nd Webinar is “Create Brand Communication Strategy with Hakuhodo” presenting Hakuhodo Indonesia’s Associate Planner Director. Rian Prabana.

This webinar talks about the uncertainty of the communication industry. Moreover, the uncertainties in the sudden change brought by Covid-19. As we’ve all known, a lot of plans are delayed or even cancelled due to the pandemic, so this webinar proposes ideas of how students can prepare themselves before working in the industry, especially in the Public Relation sector.
