The design of the learning process is translated into RPS (Rencana Pembelajaran Semester/Semester Course Detail) developed by lecturers, independently or in a group. The RPS focuses on how to guide students to learn so that they have the ability to accordance with the learning outcomes that are imposed on the courses/blocks. It is designed for student-centered learning (SCL). The RPS ensures the achievement of graduate learning outcomes (CPL) entrusted to courses or CPMK (Capaian Pembelajaran Mata Kuliah/Course Learning Outcomes), which is reviewed annually. Therefore, the RPS serves as a guide for the team teaching in implementing, evaluating, and reporting the assessment results. RPS is also a guide for students to study and an instrument of quality assurance for study programme education.

The preparation of the RPS is carried out through the following stages: determining the graduate learning outcomes assigned to the course (CPMK), determining the stages of learning/learning analysis/composing sub-CPMK, determining learning materials/discussion topics, determining methods and forms of learning to achieve sub-CPMK, and determination of learning assessment. The CPMK is required: 1. Oriented to students, not to lecturers or subjects; 2. Oriented to learning outcomes, not to the learning process.

Below are examples of the RPS prepared and used in the Study Programme of Forestry.

  1. Dendrology
  2. Forest Soil Science
  3. Climatology
  4. Watershed Management
  5. Social Forestry
