Dear BritZoners,
Wish you always have a good day!

I intentionally post this event earlier in order to get more class participant on Wednesday class.

So, for this Wednesday class, we have Lia Octavia and Aulia Prasetioadi who will share their personal experience for the second time about their trip (again). They will “bring” our class into Jogjakarta, Central Java! Wow, it’s cool, isn’t it?

But well, it’s just our class topic. They will share about “Jogja : Infinitely Ours – An Adventure of a Lifetime part 2″. So many things that they have explored along their trip a few weeks ago, so just prepare your book note and write down for the best spot there.

See you there soon! Don’t forget to come to our ToC Class tomorrow, the topic will be announced sooner.

Gap Between Industry and Academy

BZ Wednesday Class Poster

BZ Wednesday Class Poster

BritZone Wednesday Class (July 3rd, 2013). The topic was about “Gap Between Industry and Academy : Problem and Solution”. It was conducted by Akhmad Sofwan, an IT expert a.k.a technopreneur. At the first time he was contacted the PIC of Wednesday class, he wanted to bring a topic about the same topic above, but he wanted to added a particularly on computer major in university. But when the day come closer, he was confirmed the PIC that he wouldn’t talking with particularly in coputer major, but it would be more common.

The day was a little rain, the PIC felt a bit worried what if Akhmad Sofwan couldn’t came due to the rain or traffic jam, but thanks God he was came on time. Evidently, before he came inside, the PIC met Doni Sumitro, one of BZ member, and he was asked to the PIC “what’s the topic and who/s the conductor?”, then the PIC said “we’ll talking about Gap Between Industry and Academy, conducted by Akhmad Sofwan. You know Sofwan?”. Then Doni said again “Oh god, of course I know him. He’s my bussines partner, who’s supported IT in mine, and I just met him this morning, but yeah this is so unpredictable that I’ll meet him again here (BritZone class)”.

Then after Sofwan came to the class, it was looked like a little reunion among Doni and Sofwan, while the PIC waiting for the other to come to the class, a moment later one by one member came. The class has begun!

At the beginning, Sofwan made a little table about the difference between industry and academy, we can see at the table below :

Table of The Difference Between Industry and Academy

Table of The Difference Between Industry and Academy

The conductor was tried to stimulate the people who came to speak up their opinion about their own experiences. I think, still so many people who had so many opinions and experiences related to this topic, but the time was not enough to told all of them. Perhaps in the next session with the similar topic, everyone will tell what their heart want to say.

The points that the PIC can get about this topic are :
1. Academy as the non-profit institution, sometime still give a higher price to the students, that’s why in Indonesia still so many people who are decided to not continuing their study in university.
2. Mostly, the industry are only concern to GPA-oriented for their students, so if you have a higher GPA the company will take you as the employee, but if your GPA is worse so the company will diselect you from the list.
3. There’s still a big competition in professional world.
4. Mostly students didn’t make the plan before they were took a major in the university, so the knowledge that they have got will be useless.
5. The academy should be combine the basic knowledge with the entrepreneur skill, so the students can solve the problem of unemployment in Indonesia.
6. Mostly, the students took their major because what their parents want, to follow their culture to not fight the parents in every way in a good purpose..
7. The government should make a standarization for curriculum in Indonesia, a single way for continuously time, so they no need to change the curriculum in 5 years time range.

The time was running out and Sofwan tried to made a conclusion about his topic, the result is so many perceptions related to his talks but the time was over. And the PIC would close the session. Before it was really closed, there are some new comers. Two of them are the news anchor or reporter on Kompas TV, the rest are assistant lecturer and seaman. After that, the PIC told the class that it was the last BZ Wednesday Class (for temporary) in order for celebrating Ramadhan and also there two members who had a birthday several days ago, they are Yudha (former BZ President 2012) and Doni Sumitro. It was an amazing temporary-epilogue Wednesday class, memorable!

And here are some photos documentation of BZ Wednesday Class (July 3rd, 2013) :

BritZone in the Pre-Event Indonesia Community Network 2013


If it wasn’t because of R.Andika Yudha, Britzone would not be able to participate in the pre event of Indonesia Community Networ (ICN) 2013 on 1st June. So, on behalf of myself, I am thankful to him that Britzone could be part of the program. Not just as regular participants, but to lead the forum group discussion which is the main program of it. In this quite prestigious event, I certainly would not hesitate to take part. Without any hesitation, I as the representative of Britzone agreed to be group discussion leader, which was named as Care Taker. As a Care Taker, my job was to lead a group of communities which engaged in education. In the forum group discussion, there were five others groups that took part including lifestyle, environment, technology and media, arts and culture, human rights. The reason why Britzone was appointed Care Taker is because that it has quite reputation in social education. And it was a privilege for me to have the role of a care taker.

The forum group discussion started after the opening ceremony and lunch. It began at 1 pm on the 4th floor of Function Room in Novotel Hotel in Gajah Mada. As the caretaker, I wasn’t alone. I was accompanied by my best the one and only vice president of Britzone, Fajri Muslim. He acted as secretary, to write down the summary of the discussion. I stood in front of more than twenty people which came from different communities in education. There were representatives from Cewek Quat, Rumah Jendela, Save Street Child, Youth ESN, English Optimizer, Perhumas, Lingkar Ganja Indonesia, Indonesia Engineering, dan Sahabat Anak. The first thing we did in the discussion was introduction of each community representatives. In half circles, everyone introduced himself and told about the community activity and what it had achieved. Education forum group was the most crowded group compared the others, so for the introduction it took for an hour. Half of the time that had been scheduled on. The other half of the time was the discussion with the format that had already been determined before. In the discussion we had to decide the goal or objective of the group, we had to come up with certain activities that we wanted to do together in order to achieve the goal. The activities involved in five aspects including beneficiaries and society, media, government, donors, and other communities.

Overall, the group shared the same belief that education is an essential part for Indonesian people, and the responsibility do not fall on government only but also to the society. Community is there to support government in educating its people in the areas where the government presence is not there. What the group is trying to voice is that through community, larger part of community can contribute to give alternative ways to education and more people who have difficulties in accessing good education still can have it. In this ICN event, it is hoped that with the same shared experiences and values, communities can work together to make significance difference to the society through education. The strategy is by doing integrated activities in the five aspects, which is the use of media, society, government, donors and between communities. ICN 2013 was a great media to meet and connect with other communities and as a basis for further positive collaboration in order to give more significant impact to development and changes.
