Setahun di UiTM Shah Alam

AlhamduLillah, pada hari ini, maka genaplah setahun saya bertugas di UiTM Shah Alam. Masih ingat lagi bila saya menerima surat perlantikan sebagai pensyarah, "Anda ditugaskan di UiTM Segamat, Johor". Saya amat gembira pada masa itu kerana kerjaya ini merupakan pilihan pertama saya. Dengan semangat yang berkobar-kobar saya bertolak dari Butterworth ke Segamat. Sampai di Segamat saya ambil teksi terus ke kampus. Perjalanan yang jauh tidak menjadi masalah, malah menarik pula-bas kerap berhenti-henti di stesen negeri. Sampai di UiTM Segamat, saya terus di bawa ke 'common room'. Warga UiTm Segamat memang peramah dan sangat ambil berat. Begitulah 8 tahun dahulu. UiTM sememangnya indah, dan unik. Masa berjalan terlalu pantas, dan dengan tugasan di RMI, Fakulti Pengurusan Perniagaan dan Accounting Research Institute, membuatkan saya tidak sedar, dah setahun saya berada di Shah Alam. Ada banyak lagi program yang akan dilaksanakan. Saya gembira berada di UiTM Shah Alam. Peluang untuk bertemu kenalan, dan kegiatan menjalankan aktiviti penyelidikan terbuka luas. Sekarang saya kerap ke luar negara. Tahun ini aje, saya ke luar negara 2 kali. Boleh present paper di luar negara dan amat mudah untuk mendapatkan pembiayaan. InsyaAllah, pada tahun hadapan saya bercadang ke Europe untuk pembentangan kertas kerja. Mungkin rezeki yang saya dapat berlainan daripada rakan-rakan Prof. Madya yang lain. AlhamduLillah, saya bersyukur dengan limpah dan kurnia-Nya yang diberikan.

Belgium Negara Coklat

Kalau dulu saya ke Switzerland, ramai yang kata mereka terkenal dengan coklat. Sekarang ni, saya di Belgium, dan depa pun kata Belgium negara coklat. Ada yang kata, kalau makan coklat Belgium terasa betul. So, untuk kepastian, saya, Intan, Datin Toh dan PM Ir. Loo ke Brussels untuk menjengah beberapa buah kedai coklat. Oleh kerana kebanyakkan informasi dalam bahasa Perancis, maka bantuan Datin Toh amat diperlukan. Coklat yang tiada lemak haiwan (bab) dan alkohol menjadi pilihan kami. AlhamduLillah, dapat juga coklat yang dicari. Ada juga beberapa orang Islam yang memberikan panduan membeli di Brussels, terutamanya kedai kebab yang betul-betul halal. Begitulah hidup diperantauan...

Hakim di Innova-Brussels, Belgium

Datin Toh menerima anugerah "Gold Medal Romanian Country Award"

Datin Toh membantu menerangkan produk saya

Hakim di Innova-Brussels ramai. Ada yang kena judge seramai 7 orang, 9 orang. Produk saya dan Intan, 5 orang, manakala Datin Toh, seramai 3 orang. Pada mulanya kami menjangkakan maksimum judges hanya 3-4 orang, tetapi waktu petang pun ada juga judges yang datang. Paling best bila judges tak faham bahasa Inggeris dan prefer bahasa Perancis. Nasib baik ada poster bahasa Perancis dan bantuan Datin Toh yang fasih berbahasa Perancis. At least, judges ini faham maksud poster bahasa Perancis yang diterjemahkan oleh rakan-rakan di UiTM. Keputusan penuh pertandingan akan diumumkan pada pukul 7.00 petang ini. InsyaAllah, kalau ada rezeki boleh menang medal. Datin Toh pula dah dapat gold medal country Romanian Award. Kem UiTM dah mula ceria...

Booth UiTM Malaysia, Innova-Brussels Belgium

Booth UiTM di Innova-Brussels, Belgium

Booth di Innova-Brussels Belgium sama macam di Geneve, dan Seoul International Invention Fair (SIIF). Ruangnya agak besar dan boleh menempatkan dua meja, muat untuk laptop dan barang pameran, brochure etc. Oleh kerana warga Belgium berbahasa Perancis, maka poster tambahan dibuat dalam bahasa Perancis. Poster bahasa Perancis saya letakkan di dada booth manakala poster bahasa Inggeris saya letakkan ditepi booth. Tujuan saya supaya hakim (kebanyakkannya hanya faham bahasa Perancis) dapat terus membaca poster bahasa Perancis. Memang betul telahan saya. Kebanyakkan hakim yang datang prefer poster atau bahan dalam bahasa Perancis. Pengalaman di Geneva dahulu banyak membantu kami dalam pertandingan ini.

Brussels, Belgium

Brussels, Belgium

Bergambar di hadapan Hotel Holiday Inn Expo, Brussels, Belgium

Hari ini merupakan hari ketiga pertandingan rekacipta antarabangsa Innova Brussels, Belgium. Seperti biasa, saya dan Intan akan ke tempat pameran pukul 8.30 pagi. Dari Hotel Holiday Inn ke dewan Innova-Brussels tak berapa jauh. Hanya 10 minit jalan kaki. Tetapi cuaca agak sejuk dalam kitaran 10C-12C. Kalau tak tahan tentu mengeletar. Dalam perjalanan, disebelah kanan jalan tersergam indah Atomium yang menjadi mercu tanda Belgium. Kami bertuah kerana dewan pameran di sekitar tempat pelancongan, seperti Brupark-Small Europe, Atomium, etc. Huh...seronok juga Belgium nih...AlhamduLillah...

Review Board of International Journal of Scientific Research in Education (IJSRE)

AlhamduLillah, saya dilantik menjadi salah seorang review board of International Journal of Scientific Research in Education (IJSRE). Berkenaan IJSRE adalah seperti berikut;

The International Journal of Scientific Research in Education (IJSRE) is a meeting point for the dissemination and explanation of research findings by practitioners, researchers and academicians to the multifaceted problems associated with education. The journal is written and published for an international audience of practitioners, researchers and academicians. IJSRE invites the submission of manuscripts with a strong applied orientation in any topic in education and non-education domains applicable to education. Manuscripts may be, but are not limited to, empirical articles and theoretical and methodological papers. Applied value and other innovative formats are also considered. IJSRE is published twice a year on the Web and once a year in paper format. IJSRE is unlike most journals because it is both fully electronic and fully paper-based in format. Our goal is not simply to provide an Internet accessible version of a journal that appears in print. Rather the journal intends to exploit the electronic medium to its fullest degree.
Authors are highly encouraged to submit their manuscripts as attachments via e-mail to the editor-in-chief (editor.ijsre@gmail.com or editor@ijsre.com) or to the managing editor (admin@ijsre.com). The journal’s instructions for authors should be consulted. Paper submissions are accepted but not encouraged. Only in a few, well-justified exceptions will the journal accept submissions in paper form with an enclosed file on a diskette or other digital media. Upon receiving your manuscript the Editor-in-Chief will review the paper for focus and format. Should the manuscript be found appropriate, the paper is assigned to two independent reviewers and an associate editor who will make recommendations on it. Once the manuscript is accepted, its style will be checked once more and the manuscript will be scheduled for publication in the coming issue on the Web.
