Mid-term review IDN 265 - ITB Only

The Dutch-funded Niche/IDN/265 project focuses on curriculum improvement net of the ICZM and IWRM curricula in place at respectively ITS and ITB. As the project is half-way its implementation, with some activities being carried out and others yet to be started, it is appropriate to obtain feedback from the lecturers, students and management staff involved in the progress and find out more about project progress and on expectations for the future. In this report, only the responses of ITB lecturers, students and management staff are visible.

You can click on a dot to read or listen to the experiences of lecturers, students and management staff with the project. Clicking on a dot enlarges the dot in that particular question and highlights this persons answers everywhere in the report allowing you to trace this person’s answers. Clicking on a dot a second time will close the story. It is also possible to trace several people at the same time. Read your own story and that of others now!

Can you explain your answer?

  • I don’t see the gender difference
  • too many male students
  • Lack of support and opportunities to participate for female lecturers. Lack of facilities for women work, especially regarding pregnancy conditions-new childbirth.
  • In my view it's not an issue; however I need some advice / comments.
  • it is not big problem in indonesia
  • There is no discrimination and excellent equity among gender
  • The gender issues come when we question them
  • There is no gender issue
  • As an academist, I dont have friends or listening to the gender equality issues
  • there ar no gender issues in the world of professionalism, and indeed for the real world or field, there are ethics due to culture in Indonesia itself that we must understand
  • Because I think in Indonesia, especially on campus, there is no issue about gender differences. That both men and women are able to do everything as long as it is desirable and necessary.
  • Gender equality had been applied in Indonesia. It is started from Kartini who did a lot changes in women issues. Now, women have been leading in government or private sector on any profession. There are a lot of things to be proud from women without ruling of men. Women tend to be more care and can solve the problems without violence

  • In my major, the guys do the body shaming on us that makes us down. So I think its problematic and it is not gender balance.
  • It is not an issue, we feel it, just, no issue about gender balance in our course
  • Like, most us us don't see it as an issue
  • Body shaming is still the problem at this college, I know some of boys think it is just a joke, but I think sometimes they take too much as this jokes.
