Expanding due to demand
Sunday February 6, 2005



YOUNG people today are increasingly aware of the need to better equip themselves in order to have a head start when they join the working world.

Organisations too realise the need to encourage staff to continuously upgrade skills and competencies to stay abreast of changes in industry.

In recognition of this need, UTAR has taken steps to expand its campuses in the Klang Valley and to come up with new courses to meet market needs and demands.

In Petaling Jaya, UTAR’s campus for the Information and Communication Technology Faculty and the Arts and Social Science Faculty have been enlarged physically to accommodate the increase in the number of students. The Setapak campus has also followed suit with regards to the Engineering and Science faculties.

The recently-opened, brand new campus at Bandar Sungai Long is currently UTAR’s largest campus and houses students from the Accountancy and Management Faculty.





Young hopefuls at UTAR ready to start a new phase of their education.



New programmes for the January intake include Banking and Finance, Entrepreneurship, Financial Economics, Marketing, Advertising, Broadcasting, Psychology and Computer Engineering.

UTAR has also established the Institute of Postgraduate Studies and Research (IPSR) to coordinate research, consultancies and staff development programmes leading to master and doctoral degrees in information and communication technology, business administration and mass communications.

The increased emphasis on research means that more projects are conducted with other institutions of higher education, professional bodies and industries within and outside the country.

One such project is the collaboration with Grand Perfect Sdn Bhd to conduct species inventory as well as ecological and molecular population genetic studies on mammals in Bintulu, Sarawak to enable biotechnology students to study their subjects in a real world setting.

Special delivery
Sunday February 6, 2005

IT was a special delivery for Chong Hwa Independent High School students in Jalan Ipoh. Instead of The Star’s circulation staff passing stacks of newspapers to the teacher in charge, Pizza Hut personnel delivered the papers on their bikes.

Pizza Hut executive Chong Shin Roe and three staff from its restaurant in Mutiara Complex distributed copies of NiE pullout Monsters on the loose to school’s students on Jan 19.

Students who were given copies of the pullout immediately checked it out and started discussing the content among themselves.

The NiE (Newspaper-in-Education) pullout is distributed with The Star every Wednesday to schools which subscribe to the paper. Star-NiE and Stuff@school, both eight-page pullouts each, come free with The Star at a special price of 60 sen per copy. Pizza Hut is The Star's NiE partner, pledging more than RM3mil in prizes and sponsorship.

CAPTIVATING: Chong Hwa Independent High School students checking out their copy of Monsters on the loosewhile Pizza Hut staff look on.



On the NiE pullout, student Tan Eng Soon said: “The layout of the supplement is attractive and it provides teachers with ready materials to use in the classroom.”

He added that the articles and graphics on tsunami in Stuff@school also gave them more to ponder on during English lessons.

His friend, Goh Kim Shawn, said that the supplement was educational and very interesting to look at. He liked the illustrations and the colourful layout as it gave the supplement a breezy look. He added that the English lessons were fun because the activities and the stories in Stuff@school gave teachers an alternative source of teaching material.

Student Joyce Ng Yoon Yi said that the supplement “provides something different from the other newspapers.” She enjoyed looking at the colourful illustrations and found the cartoons especially attractive. Apart from doing the activities in the classroom, she sometimes spends time working on them on her own.

“I shared my supplement with friends and we did the activities together,” said Teoh Chai Zhen. She added that they did the activities in the classroom with their teacher. The students are not allowed to take the newspapers home because they are used in school.

According to the head of the English department, K.L. Lim, the school orders The Star weekly. However, she said the number of copies ordered fluctuated between 100 and 840, depending on the topics published.

Lim was also impressed with the supplements, saying, “The supplements are getting better. The contents have improved with some of the activities more challenging.”

She added that she particularly liked the Stuff@school pullout that was exclusively available with the supplement at it was very “current”. The stories regarding the tsunami got her teachers cracking their brains on how to use them in their English lessons successfully. She said that the stories were even useful in teaching English for science and technology.

Education for execs
Sunday February 6, 2005



A NATURAL progression for people in the workforce seeking to upgrade academic qualifications is to opt for a distance-learning programme.

The KDU Management Development Centre (KMDC) is now offering two such options to professionals through partnerships with Middlesex University in the United Kingdom and Deakin University in Australia. Its “executive education for professionals” programme was introduced, bearing in mind that most executives have heavy work responsibilities and little time for traditional methods of study.

The work-based learning (WBL) programme at Middlesex University, for instance, allows busy professionals to tap into their work scope to get a master degree qualification. WBL candidates take up distance learning projects specifically designed to their needs and abilities. The programme is flexible and adopts a hands-on approach. Lecture-style learning is minimised.

The Deakin option, on the other hand, caters to individuals who prefer a more structured approach. Deakin, with its wide range of master programmes, has been rated one of the top 10 business schools by Asia Inc magazine.

Participants taking the “executive education for professionals” programme will also be able to take advantage of the Executive Learning Network which links them with other professionals, client organisations and partner learning providers. This not only enhances their learning experience but also helps them form good linkages and networks worldwide.

Spread your wings
Sunday February 6, 2005



EXPAND your services overseas! That was the call given to several established Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) tuition providers in Malaysia recently.

Many colleges which have produced world-class accountants over the years have been urged to export their services overseas, especially to countries like China, the Middle East and Southeast Asian nations.

Congratulating Institute Perkim-Goon (IPG) for being the second in the country and the fourth in the world to be awarded the prestigious Premier Plus status, Higher Education Deputy Minister Datuk Fu Ah Kiow said the college should now spread its wings.

Scholarships for Malaysians to study in Cuba
Sunday February 6, 2005

KUALA LUMPUR: Cuba has offered Malaysians scholarships to study at the International School for Physical Education and Sports. The university churns out graduates in sports management, physical education and recreation.

The courses, which are to be completed in a five-year period, will enable the graduates to seek employment as physical education teachers as well as coaches.

At present, the university has students from 37 countries with the bulk coming from Africa and Asia.

Entry to the university is by means of a Cuban state programme devoted to providing scholarships to students through the Ministry of Foreign Relations (MINREX) and its embassies in the concerned countries.

Youth and Sports Minister Datuk Azalina Othman Said visited the university last week during her visit to Cuba and was given a briefing by Mrs Adelaida Ramos, the Teaching vice-Rector of the University.

“The very fact that there is a university dedicated to physical education speaks volumes of the commitment of the Cuban government towards the welfare of their people, especially the youth,” said Azalina.

“As for the offer to send our students, we welcome it and will look at how we can go about sending our students there.”

Truancy still a problem at British schools
Saturday February 5, 2005

LONDON: Government efforts to tackle persistent truancy have failed, according to a report yesterday, with the number of pupils cutting school still at 1997 levels despite nearly £1bil (RM7.15bil) being spent to curb the the problem.

Spending watchdog, the National Audit Office, said reasons for truancy include boring lessons, bullying, drug addiction and the poor attitude of some parents to education.

It said that while the government had managed to reduce the percentage of pupils missing school since 1997 from 7.6% to 6.7%, there were still 50,000 at state schools playing truant every day, despite £885mil (RM6.33bil) having been spent on the problem between 1997-98 and 2003-2004.

It urged more co-operation between government, schools and local authorities to tackle persistent truancy, which could lead, it said, to “undesirable activities” such as illegal work, criminal activity and drug use.

Education Secretary Ruth Kelly told BBC radio yesterday, however, that government efforts were beginning to work.

She said unpublished government figures showed new powers given to local authorities were beginning to have a “dramatic impact” on “hardcore” truants, who make up 2% of the 6.7 million pupils in state schools.

Under the Anti-social Behaviour Act, introduced in 2003, local authorities can issue fixed penalty notices and start fast-track prosecutions of parents, she noted.

The government would also be unveiling new plans for vocational training for students who were not interested in the curriculum offered at school. – Reuters

Ministry to educate 100 trainee teachers from Aceh
Saturday February 5, 2005

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia will bring 100 trainee teachers from Aceh and train them at colleges here as part of the effort to assist the tsunami-hit district.

Education Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein who announced this yesterday, said a list of potential candidates was being prepared.

Education deputy director-general (schools) Datuk Kusaini Hasbullah will lead a four-member team with representatives from the Teachers Training Division, Schools Division as well as from Policy and Research, to Aceh tomorrow to work out the details, he said.

“Datuk Kusaini will meet representatives from the Aceh government. In my discussion with the acting governor of Aceh last month, he indicated that 100 trainees would be sent here.

“I said it would not be a problem. I have already spoken to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and he has asked that some flexibility be given to them,” he told reporters here.

On Jan 24, Hishammuddin said that there was no point in Malaysia helping to build schools in Aceh if there was a shortage of teachers there following the Dec 26 disaster.

Pahang schools to stop outdoor activities
Tuesday February 1, 2005


KUALA LUMPUR: Students in Pahang will be exempted from co-curricular activities that are held outdoors or in school fields as a preventive measure against dengue, said Education Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein.

Supporting the directive by Pahang Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Adnan Yaakob on the matter, Hishammuddin said his ministry would issue a circular on the temporary exemption.

“I met Datuk Seri Adnan this morning and told him that I support his decision to ask schools to stop holding activities outside for the time being,” he said after launching a local daily’s education pullout at SK Taman Melati yesterday.

On Monday, Adnan was reported to have ordered all schools in Pahang to stop outdoor activities, especially in the mornings and evenings, to prevent the students from getting bitten by aedes mosquitoes.

On whether all schools would be affected, Hishammuddin said the exemption would be made on a case-by-case basis, depending on the need.

“We must be realistic as not all 10,000 schools in the country are affected,” he said.

UiTM To Emphasise Research
December 24, 2004


SHAH ALAM, Dec 24 (Bernama) -- Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) will make research a major part of its academic activity that all students and staff have to engage in, Vice-Chancellor Datuk Seri Prof Ibrahim Abu Shah said Friday.

He said research at UiTM was not confined to students and staff of the science disciplines but also encouraged among students and staff in other fields such as accountancy, communications and art.

Prof Ibrahim said the emphasis on research was in line with UiTM's desire to be known as a research university, as its name suggested.

"We are actively developing research and studies in inventive technology, including in the science and commercial fields," he told reporters after attending an Innovation, Invention and Design 2004 programme, here.

Prof Ibrahim said a unit known as the Institute for Research, Development and Commercialisation (IRDC) had been set up to coordinate research and consultation activities at UiTM.

He also said that two products developed through research at the university had been patented. One was "ILMU", an application used in the management of library data, and the other "LOGO", production of goods using the UiTM logo.

He said UiTM had the capability to be among the top research centres in Malaysia because it had many creative and competitive innovators and inventors, and referred to the success of two UiTM lecturers, Prof Ir Dr Shah Rizam Mohd Shah Baki and Badrul Hisham Mat Tahir, who had received a special award from the Korean Association for School Invention at the Seoul International Invention Fair (SIIF) recently.

UiTM also showed encouraging potential in research when it won four gold and three silver medals at the same fair, he added.
