Universities to resume limited in-person learning

Indonesian universities are set to commence limited face-to-face learning (PTM) this semester for the 2021-22 academic year. The limited PTM, a hybrid learning programme that combines online and offline lectures, is being implemented with strict adherence to the health protocols and the public activity restrictions (PPKM) applicable to each region, reports The Jakarta Post.

The government highlighted that universities must implement the limited PTM in stages, from preparation to implementation and to monitoring, as stipulated in Circular No 4/2021 on PTM organisation for the 2021-22 academic year, issued by the higher education, research and technology director general of the Education, Culture, Research and Technology Ministry.

To optimise health protection, universities in regions designated PPKM levels 1-3 are advised to form their own COVID-19 handling task force to implement the standard operating procedures of the health protocols on campus. In addition, students at the universities implementing the limited PTM must be healthy and fully vaccinated.
