Padang - All Private Universities within Kopertis Region X must refer to the National Standards of Higher Education (SN-Dikti). The goal is that graduates are not just objects of change but become qualified agents of change itself.

"The changes that occurred in the era of Industrial Revolution 4.0 changed the business map of the organization that demands the role of universities and lecturers to become agents of change," said Coordinator Kopertis Region X Prof. Dr. Herri, MBA after the ceremony of National Education Day in Padang, Wednesday (02/05/2018).

According to him, to continue to improve the quality of education in the digital age of lecturers must be spurred so as not left behind. Because college graduates are required to be proficient in the mastery of technology.

Especially now one of the Kemenristekdikti policy that will soon be implemented is the Distance Education Program or PJJ, where in the near future Kemenristekdikti will issue Permenristekdikti to support the implementation of this program.

Its implementation is the development of cyber universities (Cyber ​​University) prepared for online learning. Higher education in the future will offer many choices of learning models, ranging from face to face, online learning, to blended learning.

Furthermore, the Coordinator conveyed that the lecturers continue to conduct research related issues in the community.
