Last week, INCULS along with various BIPA professionals converged in the Workshop of Textbook Mapping Preparation (Lokakarya Penyusunan Peta Materi Buku Ajar). The three-day workshop was held at the Prime Plaza Hotel from the 25th to the 27th of March 2022. Emphasizing on the need for a new, updated version of textbooks belonging exclusively to INCULS, the workshop was met with active enthusiasm from staffs and academics that were specially invited.
Dr. Wira Kurniawati, S.S., M.A., current Coordinator of INCULS, officiated the start of the workshop with a comprehensive briefing regarding the new direction that INCULS wanted to take with the upcoming textbooks. Other opening remarks were uttered by Prof. Dr. Wening Udasmoro, S.S., M.Hum., DEA as Chairperson of Language Center FIB UGM and Drs. Suharsono, M.Hum, as the reviewer of B1 & B2 books.
During the course of three days, every assembly team presented their findings to each other to better coordinate and integrate their materials. Since the workshop involved people from various academic backgrounds, the teams and staffs were able to exchange different insights on language teaching methods. Full of freshly-gained knowledge, INCULS and the assembly team ended the workshop with hopes that the books will ultimately serve as one of the best tools for BIPA learning in UGM.
