Yesterday, Monday 13 February 2012, I was at EDC, Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM) in Sintok, Kedah. The aim was to fulfill an invitation by UUM Press to talk on Academic Writings: Objectives, Types and the Value of Contributions at their Academic Writing & Book Review Workshop. The participants were lecturers of UUM - quite a substantial number of them, Alhamdulillah.
I was honoured to have been accompanied from Penang by three ISDEV ASTS (Academic Staff Training Scheme) Fellows, viz. Ustaz Mohd Shukri Hanapi, Ustaz Shahir Akram and Ustaz Syakir. A lot of discussions were done along the return journey from Penang to Sintok, from thesis supervision to reviewing Tuesdays Islamic classes, et cetera. It was ended by an afternoon snack on our way back at Char Koay Teow - Telur Ayam Dibasuh Restaurant in Sungei Dua, Penang.
