Putting this tool into use in order to innovate ITB – SBM will give the following result for myself:

  • Substitute: Replace table chairs with proper desks. Most of the weekly group work and rather have a few individual assignments that have a heavier weight on the final grade.
  • Combine: Theory and practical work (learning by doing)
  • Adapt: Due to the high temperatures in Bandung, shorts and sandals should be allowed. Punctuality of all fellow students.
  • Modify: Create more hangout spots for students.
  • Put to another use: The rooftop of SBM should become a cafeteria with chill out area.
  • Eliminate: Attendance list and dress codes. Besides, 5 hours of master courses at one day.
  • Rearrange: More field trips and company visits. Foods and drinks should be allowed in class.
