Indonesian Culture Module?

    In International class, not all of the students are Indonesian, thus, basic comprehension of Indonesian Culture is needed by its students. The aim of this module is to make a good medical doctor that is cross-culturally sensitive and be ready to act accordingly in order to avoid miscommunication in carrying out his/her task.

What are the things we are going to learn?

    Actually, this module is a kind of review to your high school science class. So, many of the topics presented here is just a repetition.In this module you are going to learn about:

  • Elements of culture
  • Cultural approach to the understanding of cleanness and health
  • Cultural approach to the understanding of environment
  • Patterns of communication
  • Discourse strategy, FTA, and politeness    

    The learning will consist mostly by lectures. There will be also some role play and presentation of assignments about cultural index. Actually, there will be no summative examination in culture module but, all of the concept learned in class must be applied in your final project which is the largest determinant of your final grade.

To get a good grade in your final project, please incorporate concept that you have learned in the class to your essays. It will greatly increase the score of your essays. The important thing is the ability to balance your culture essay with logic take home exam which will also be collected at the same time.
