Academic Recharging

May 6, 2011 Leave a comment

I first hear about this phrase in the Indonesian government of education website. Academic recharging is one of fund application schemes provided to academician who feels bored and sometimes tired doing teaching in their respective university. This scheme is provided to ‘recharge’ them in some way such that they are able to go abroad conducting research with their colleagues overseas. Indonesian government hopes by doing this scheme, lecturer and academician could update their knowledge to the current topics so that Indonesian academic society would not be left behind.

But I have found my way of academic recharging. And I give many thanks to ICTP and MIT. Courses that are provided by ICTP and MIT have been recorded and have been available online. I don’t know since when this happens but for me it is great. I can update my knowledge with some new information that I have never learned before.

After downloaded a video, I can watch the course that I am interested. When I don’t understand a thing, I can just pause and google them. I can pause anytime I want when some students knocking my door. I strongly recommended this way of learning to my colleagues and my students as this is much as fun as watching movie.
