- Curriculum, competencies, learning outcomes
The challenges facing the animal science study program of Campus II Payakumbuh in implementing the learning process were poor knowledge and skills of students and graduates. The academic grades did not reflect the actual skills needed to work in the livestock areas. This research redesigned the curriculum to strengthen competence by referring to the job opportunities and career of lecturers. The research was initiated by evaluating the outcomes of the current applied curriculum by observing the understanding, skills, and attitudes of students by implementing a research project. Results found that the students’ working performances were below expected, presumably due to poor course understanding, practical experiences, and working attitude. The curriculum was redesigned to achieve basic and specific expertise competencies. Basic competence is the minimum competency that must be possessed by an animal science student, while the particular expertise competency is an additional competency related to intended specialization. Course subjects were translated based on the intended competence achieved, and learning outcomes were evaluated based on intended competency. Basic sciences and appropriate learning processes strengthened the curriculum for skills, character building, and professional attitude. Lecturers tailored their expertise and intellectual capacity in teaching, education, research, and community services.
