School of Education's SRPBS: May to August 2017

As undergraduate students were busy with exams and then left the campus for their end of the academic year break, the School of Education continues to host our series of research and practice based seminars (SRPBS) from May to August 2017, to strengthen our research capacity.

On the 17th of May 2017, Ms Amreet Kaur Jageer Singh from Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris shared an award winning research of hers, Transforming Teaching and Learning Practices in English Grammar Course through Flipped Classroom and Gamification at our SRPBS. This was followed by another remarkable study, Exploring the Affordances of The Writing Portal (TWP) as an Online Supplementary Writing Platform by our very own Associate Professor Lee Kean Wah. 


On the 8th of June, two more faculty members from the School of Education, Dr Philip Whitehead and Dr Wong Tze Peng shared their insights of research during the School of Education’s Postgraduate Research Workshop. Dr Whitehead’s talk was about controversies in ethical research issues while Dr Wong presented on the beliefs and practices in mother-child talk among families of Malay heritage in Malaysia. In the same month, Professor Tony Busy shared preliminary findings on his project on the impact of the Malaysian Education Blueprint on school leaders. 

In the month of July, Associate Professor Robert H. Taferner from Hiroshima University visited us and presented a study entitled Assessing Changes in L2 Learners’ Beliefs and Values through Critical Lifetime Events: A Focus on Study Abroad Experiences. This was followed by discussions regarding further collaborations with the Hiroshima University.


The School of Education’s SRPBS is a collaborative effort of the faculty members of the School. Many of these events are open to all for free. Future SRPBS events are listed on
