Telkom University conducts limited face-to-face lectures with the Hybrid and Blended Learning (HBL) model. The HBL lecture started on Thursday (12/5) with more than seven thousand students.
Telkom University Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, Dr. Dadan Rahadian, S.T., M.T., said that students who took part in HBL lectures had extraordinary enthusiasm, especially for Class 2020 students taking onsite lessons for the first time.
“Alhamdulillah, this is the first day of the hybrid and blended learning model. I saw that the students’ enthusiasm was extraordinary. Most of the class of 2020 who had just set foot on campus for the first time were studying onsite for the first time. Even if I ask one by one, it turns out that the average person is from outside Bandung.”
Dr. Dadan also explained that the HBL lecture activities were carried out while implementing strict health protocols and procedures. Preparation for this HBL lecture uses a system that has been integrated into each classroom.
“There is an update of the tools well by the university, the faculty, and the related directorates. Alhamdulillah, I think it’s quite good, but considering it’s the early days, maybe its use is not optimal,” he explained.
Dr. Dadan also added that the campus continues to evaluate and improve the implementation of HBL lectures. Since the Covid-19 pandemic has not ended, Telkom University has prepared a Covid-19 Task Force Team to monitor students who carry out HBL lectures.
“We still have much work to adjust to run this hybrid and blended learning course well. Thank you for supporting all parties related to implementing this hybrid and blended learning course. I hope it can run smoothly in the future.”
