Campus Facilities

The infrastructure management of the History Education Study Program is handled directly by the faculty, such as procurement, maintenance, and repair of damaged facilities. Physical facilities owned by the History Education Study Program consist of lecture rooms, 21 lecturer rooms with an area of 2 x 2.5 meters each, complete chairs, and each lecturer has an archive storage cabinet. Other equipment is five laptops, 5 LCD/Infocus, six computers and six printers, 1 OHP, one fan, 1 AC, five televisions, four digital cameras, four handycams. Lectures are held in the new FPIPS building on the fourth, fifth, and sixth floors and the microteaching room on the third floor.

Each lecturer has a representative room with an area of 2 x 2.5 meters. Each lecturer room is equipped with one table, one lecturer chair, two guest chairs, one filing cabinet, one book storage table, and one small cupboard. Each room is equipped with an internet network, and only a few rooms can be used while others are still not usable.

The History Education Study Program also has a laboratory located on the fourth floor of the FPIPS building. This laboratory includes an educational laboratory, a practical laboratory for making/storing learning media and a library, a room for making ICT-based learning media, and a podcast broadcasting room. The laboratory and the library are managed by a lecturer who is given the position of laboratory manager. The History Education Study Program continues to strive to complete the collection of laboratory equipment and libraries. This was done through funding from the RKAT and supported by the receipt of a superior program grant from the university in terms of making learning media in the form of making mockups of artifacts and historical objects and making documentary CDs of historical events. This is one of the strengths of the History Education Study Program to continue to develop itself. As a support for the laboratory, the National Education Museum, owned by UPI, became a vehicle for student practice because the development of the museum involved many lecturers of the History Education Study Program.

For organizing academic activities in the History Education Study Program, UPI, a building or room is needed. The availability of space for the implementation of educational activities of the History Education Study Program is adequate. Since the end of 2007, the History Education Study Program has occupied a new building with sufficient facilities for holding academic activities. The FPIPS building, including some of the buildings at UPI, is a grant from the IDB (Islamic Development Bank).

For the implementation of lectures, rooms are available on floors IV-VI with an area of about 60m2 each. This number of rooms is sufficient for the performance of studies. Each room is set up with a maximum capacity of 50 people, so that it is pretty ideal for carrying out academic activities. The adequacy of class facilities is also shown that with a 4-day class schedule for the Study Program (Monday-Friday, except Wednesday for MKDU), there has never been a course not getting a room, meaning that everything can be scheduled with the existing room facilities. In addition, in each room, an LCD/infocus has been installed on a patent basis to be very helpful for lecture activities supported by multimedia. Since the 2020 pandemic, every class has been provided with live streaming technology to support blended learning.

The History Education Study Program has also provided various references, although in limited numbers in the Study Program reading room, located in the History Education Study Program laboratory room. Both students and lecturers can use these references. In addition to these references, students of the History Education Study Program can also take advantage of references in the faculty reading rooms and university libraries. In addition, academic infrastructure is supported by internet facilities. Inside the FPIPS building, wireless (wi-fi) facilities are provided that can be accessed by the entire UPI academic community as long as they have registered their account with UPI-Net. This includes internet facilities already in the Study Program offices and all lecturer rooms, only for lecturer rooms cannot all of them be operated.

The infrastructure currently owned by the History Education Study Program can be said to have been following the needs for the implementation of academic activities. These infrastructure facilities are also suitable for carrying out higher education tri dharma activities, namely education, research, and community service. From the aspect of adequacy, almost all the facilities and infrastructure needed are available; thus, the problem is more related to management and maintenance. For example, the History Education Study Program for developing PBM lectures, especially those related to learning history learning and learning simulations, requires a micro-teaching room. This room is available at the faculty and the university level (general at the UPI center). Thus the need for micro-teaching has been provided, and only the problem is more related to scheduling. It also includes existing facilities that need to be maintained so that their use can continue to be optimal. Such as maintenance of focus, computers, laptops, internet networks, and so on.
