The 48th of the student council, Be:ONE, opened a petition bulletin board at Everytime Application. The JJ petition bulletin board, which will be piloted until March 2021, is expected to be a communication channel between students and school. The petition method is as follows. Any student at Jeonju university can post on the petition bulletin board, and if the number of “likes” exceeds over 200, the petition will proceed. The Everytime application is used by most students at Jeonju university; therefore, the petition bulletin board using Everytime has many advantages such as having good accessibility and low pressure on writing, allowing students to comfortably express their opinions. So far, the first academic monitoring meeting that the university headquarters and student representatives participated has been held. During the meeting, they discussed the need of non-face-to-face classes, the increase of maximum credits multiple major students can take per semester, and the partial return of tuition fees.
According to the results of the 1st academic monitoring meeting released by the student council member, the answer to the students’ petition for non-face-to-face class is as follows. Jeonju university has face-to-face classes in principle. In 2021, the first semester will be operated by flip-learning-based On & Off classes that mix non-face-to-face and face-to-face upon the 1.5 level of social distancing policy. In the process, reflecting students’ concerns, the administration office promises to make extreme efforts to implement and supplement quarantine measures, and care for those who have symptoms to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
The second issue was related to online video lecturing system. As the proportion of video recording lectures increased due to Corona-19, the school has changed the recognition time of video lectures (from 30 minutes video=1 hour in the first semester of 2020 to 30 minutes video=45 minutes in the second semester). Regarding this issue, one of the student council members suggested that the school recognize 1:1 ratio of class time and reduce online assignments as much as possible. He also asked the school to regularly confirm the quality of lectures to prevent uploading YouTube videos only or uploading old materials.
Third, there is a change regarding how to enter the school buildings. On weekdays (08:30-18:00), the door will be opened without card tagging procedures and allow outsiders to enter the school building. In addition, QR code checking procedure will be added before boarding on a school bus.
Fourth, there was a brief discussion about the inconvenience multiple majoring students experience when applying for classes because of the credit limit. The next non-face-to-face academic monitoring meeting will take place at 11 p.m. on March 12.
As a result, Be:One, the 48th student council, implemented its first pledge of opening JJ petition & forming a communication TF team. There are other pledges such as reduction of the Superstar Score from 500 to 300, reorganization of Christian courses, holding healing festivals, and additional installation of elevators, etc.
Most students responded positively to the opening of the petition bulletin board the student council created. The student council has gained trust through this transparent petition process by sharing posts on the board, reporting the progress and result of the meeting. Students who had difficulty participating in the school work even if they had suggestions could communicate with the school through the petition bulletin board.
Around this time last year, students had to contact the school in person to ask for non-face-to-face classes. Each student had to make a phone call individually, and most of the students did not even know the operation type of some classes because of the lack of information. However, in February of this year, students asked for non-face-to-face classes through the petition bulletin board, and the progress and results were immediately available.
Starting with the opening of the petition bulletin board, we are looking forward to having a student council that keep striving for the convenience of students. Please pay a careful attention on the JJ petition bulletin board so that it can be a formally and permanently operating.
