Indonesian Language Classes (40 hours)
Students are required to attend 40 hours of intensive classes in language and culture at Sanata Dharma University in order to develop language skills that will help them operate more effectively in their practicum placements and in the wider Indonesian community. Students sit a placement test prior to the program and are placed in Beginner, Intermediate or Advanced Indonesian language classes. Language classes are three hours in duration. Students are assessed on four macro skills areas: Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing. Students sit a final language exam and are awarded a numerical mark for this assessment component. To be awarded an overall ‘Satisfactory’ grade for the CADPP, participants must achieve a mark of at least 60% for this component.
Seminars, Tutorials, and Fieldtrips (30 hours)
This component of the CADPP consists of eight seminars, 10 tutorials and two fieldtrips. Students must attend and participate actively in a minimum of 80% all scheduled seminars, tutorials and fieldtrips. Prior to each seminar, tutorial or fieldtrip, students are required to complete a number of set readings. Students must demonstrate adequate preparation through informed contributions to discussions and activities in order to pass this component. Lively discussion groups and Q&A sessions will be a key aspect of these sessions.
The purpose of the Reflective Journal is to encourage critical thinking and reflection from students on their theoretical and vocational learning process while on the CADPP. It should serve as a space in which students are able to reflect on the challenges and rewards of working in a cross-cultural professional environment, and guide students’ workplace tasks week-to-week based on input from their Academic Program Officer and workplace mentor. The reflective journal should also demonstrate evidence of a students’ understanding of set course readings and ability to relate these readings to their practicum experience.
Practicum Report (2,000 words)
Students are required to complete a 2,000-word report on a contemporary issue in the Indonesian creative arts and design sector as well as to create a digital portfolio/poster/artwork displaying the student’s creative discipline within the Indonesian creative arts and design context. The aim of the report is to encourage students to think critically about contemporary creative art and design issues in Indonesia. In writing the report, students are expected to draw on a range of secondary sources (academic journal articles, research papers, books and online articles) as well as from their own experience of the Indonesian creative arts and design sector while on the CADPP program.
Award of Grade for the Unit
Both the student and the student’s home university will receive a copy of the Academic Program Officer’s student outcome evaluation report as well as an official academic transcript from Sanata Dharma University. These assessment documents will be sent electronically from the ACICIS Secretariat in Perth within six weeks of a student’s completion of the program. The home university may choose to award a numerical grade or an ungraded pass/fail on the basis of these documents and any additional home university assessment requirements for the program.
