One of Madrasah Aliyah Pembangunan teachers, Fitriyuni Miralda Siregar, represented Indonesia to attend a 'Regional Training Course for Teachers to Introduce Nuclear Science in Secondary Schools through Innovative Approaches' in Sydney, Australia. The activity organized by IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency), was collaborated with ANSTO (Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organization), and BATAN (Indonesian Nuclear Technology Agency).
The following are participating countries in the event; Indonesia, Israel, Jordan, Lao P.D.R, Malaysia, Mongolia, Myanmar, Nepal, Oman, Philippines, Singapore, Srilanka, Thailand and Vietnam.
The purposes of this activity are to increase teachers' understanding toward basic nuclear sciences, introduce the best methods in teaching nuclear, support the insight theory of nuclear and also give an experience for teachers to develop learning practices for secondary level students.
While staying in Australia from 9 to 20 December 2019, Ibu Fitriyuni gained insights on technical contents and basic knowledge of nuclear. In addition, she also received training on various learning activities and on how to design lesson plans to be applied at the level of MA/SMA. At the end of the activity, Ibu Fitriyuni presented a learning program that will be proposed to be implemented in Indonesia.
"I am very happy to represent Indonesia in an international forum," she said. "I never thought before that I could be chosen as a delegation of Indonesia." she added. "By joining this event, I hope to be able to apply a method in classroom that will make students easy to understand nuclear science," said the teacher of Chemistry Study. [im]
