Last week, in particular from 4 to 5th May 2011, appeared to look like an ISDEV Graduate Week, though it was not called so.
On Wednesday the 4th, Roslan Hassan and Mohd Shukri Hanapi presented their Master and PhD proposals respectively. Both were given a nod to proceed with their research, the former on A Study on Conflict Management in Shah Alam City Council From Islamic Perpsective and the latter on Development Worldview in the al-Qur`an - A Study of Tafsir Mawdhi'y. I involved in both proposals - as an assessor to Roslan and as a main supervisor to Mohd Shukri.

The climax was on Friday the 6th, with ISDEV Monthly Graduate (Collective) Supervision. I involved directly with it, in both sessions that have been scheduled. The first was the tazkirah titled Is It Too Difficult to Write A Thesis?, and the second was the lecture on Problem Statement and Its Relation to Background, Objectives and Research Questions.
The three days were joyful indeed, giving opportunities to all ISDEV graduate students, local and overseas, to interact formal and informally with their fellow students and supervisors, in accomplishing similar aim of producing excellent theses. Alhamdulillah.
