Unesa.ac.id, SURABAYA–Surabaya State University (UNESA) encourages teachers to continue to improve their abilities. In addition to being able to teach students, teachers are also required to be able and creative in writing scientific papers.

FBS Dean, Dr. Trisakti, M.Sc., said that the activity was part of the community service program. Of course, this is a manifestation of the implementation of the tridharma of higher education which aims to equip teachers so that they can produce scientific works.
“In addition to theoretical provisions, teachers are also provided with practical skills in the form of ways to find ideas, how to write, to publication in scientific journals. Therefore, apart from training, there is also assistance,” he said.
This event was attended by Dra. Hj. Endah Purnomowati Nurhasan, M.Pd., Chair of the UNESA DWP. He hoped that the teachers could not only write but also apply Indonesian properly and correctly in their writing.
Researchers from the Research and Development Agency (Balitbang) East Java, Yudianto Tri Kurniawan, ST, S.Mn., M.Sos., MM., were present as presenters. He explained that research-based learning aims to create learning methods that are more focused on analysis, synthesis and evaluation activities as well as improve the ability of students and teachers in terms of assimilation and application of knowledge.
