Pengabdian Masyarakat Dosen Fakultas Psikologi Universitas Islam Riau (UIR)

Responding to online learning which has been going on for quite a long time due to the Covid-19 pandemic, lecturers at the Faculty of Psychology, Islamic University of Riau, namely Juliarni Siregar, M.Psi., Psychologist, Nindy Amita, M.Psi., Psychologist and Wina Diana Sari, S.Psi, MBA from September to December 2021 has implemented a community service program for foreign students within the Islamic University of Riau. This program is carried out in the form of psychoeducation, which aims to improve self-regulation abilities in learning, where increasing self-regulation abilities is expected to increase academic achievement and anticipate academic delays.

In general, it can be said that this psychoeducation is effective in increasing foreign students’ knowledge about how to regulate themselves in learning, where quantitative data shows an increase in knowledge of 89.25%. Through this psychoeducation, foreign students who initially complained about the lack of motivation to study online have returned to build their enthusiasm for learning by realising their initial purpose in coming to Indonesia, developing the right strategy and committing to continue following the road map that has been made to achieve their learning goals. This indicates that with a good awareness of the problems faced and sufficient knowledge about how to solve these problems, the opportunity to rise from feeling lazy while studying online will increase.
