Edy Purwanto explaining his experience on patent registration

For examples of simple patent, he provided pictures of paper clip, ring-pull cans, aircraft seat buckle, and post-it notes. He mentioned that invention products are not necessarily sophisticated, and most of the times they are just simple things we encountered in our daily life.

 

He continued with explication on the process of designing research that could produce new invention that’s patentable, before sharing his research and the journey of obtaining his patent.

GoLive May Discussion Series: The Learning Experiences of International Students in an Australian University

Discussion series may

GoLive is back with the discussion series event for this upcoming May 2017. We are proudly bringing to the table the experience of Dr. Barry Elsey and Dr. Amina Omarova from the Entrepreneurship, Commercialisation and Innovation Centre (ECIC), University of Adelaide South Australia, in delivering a double degree master program, co-partnered with Bogor Agricultural Institute (IPB) Indonesia.

Drs Elsey and Omarova designed and managed an applied research learning program for a cohort of Indonesian students doing the split-site, double-degree Master’s program shared between University of Adelaide and IPB. All the students were employees of the Ministry of Industry, specifically employed on various kinds of agricultural development work.
The intention of the presentation is to set the teaching and learning program within the wider context of studies of international students in western universities, which is a significant development that began in the early 1980s. Dr. Elsey was among the first to undertake systematic research into the learning experiences of international students.
Many years later the opportunity arose to take a research interest into the learning experiences of the Indonesian students as they dealt with the many challenges of their life and study times in Adelaide, both the university and the city. We shall explain those various challenges of being an international student and the stakeholder interest in their success.

Titled “The Learning Experiences of International Students in an Australian University: A Case Study of Indonesian Public Servants Doing a Double Degree Master”, this May Discussion Series will be enriching the experience and knowledge of those who are looking for opportunities to devising similar program collaborated with Australian institutions.

The session begins with warm greetings from GoLive Indonesia coordinator, Gracia Girsang.  Followed with elaboration on LPDP scholarship from Yanuar Syapaat and Indra Kiling. Both speakers share some tips and tricks on how to get LPDP scholarship; where some of the important points are the return agreement requirements, age limit, and to provide and prepare thoroughly particularly when the course you desire is not on the scholarship provider’s priority. Indra Kiling deliberately gave himself a bit of pressure by delaying his LPDP application to stimulate productivity.

Then,  the explanation on AAS (Australian Awards) scholarship, were presented by Kristin Ramlan and Ari Arifin. Both speakers emphasize that future applicants need to choose the most suitable awards option for themselves  – either short or long-term awards -, check discussion forum for first-hand experiences and make sure their IELTS score is sufficient, and carefully prepare for the interview. This session is closed with Aryani Tri Wrastari’s descriptions on Endeavour Scholarship.   Aryani explains 9 crucial tips in completing your Endeavour application. She emphasizes that it’s not about your major or your age is within the limit, it is more towards you showing your achievement and experiences that particularly highlights your networks, partnerships, and collaborations.

The second session begins straight after the other one, highlighting information on how to apply to an Australian university. This session were led by Indra Kiling and Gracia Girsang. This session encourages future students to gather information and research from available university websites and publication in relation to finding the right supervisor for their research topic. By doing so, students will be able to capture the supervisor’s interest towards their research topic and gain their support. Gracia then continues the session by providing an example of how to construct a research proposal. She highlights that in writing the research proposal, future research candidates need to be concise and flexible. A well-written proposal with around 1000-1500 words would be sufficient to get the attention of potential supervisors.
