USM Annual Teaching and Learning Seminar 2013A New Culture Of Learning And Teaching
It has been a great honour for eLC Services Sdn Bhd to be invited by the Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) to set up a booth at the USM Penang and USM Kelantan campuses on 31st October and 17th November 2013 respectively.
The title of the seminar this year is "Annual Teaching and Learning Seminar 2013", with the slogan "A New Culture of Learning and Teaching". The objective of this seminar is to encourage the usage of technology-enhanced learning among the university lecturers through exposure and continuous training. It also served as a One-Stop Centre for lecturers and students to gather resources in relation to the field of teaching and learning, and how technology can help. Last but not least, the seminar served to provide consultation services to students regarding academic issues.
This event provides the platform for lecturers from private and public universities in Malaysia to meet and share their knowledge and opinion about the role of technology in teaching and learning. The invited speakers came from various universities and countries from all over. For example, we have Prof. Dr. Grace Javier from the University of Philippines, Prof. Dr. Mohamed Amin Embi from Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) and Prof. Dr. Jaafar Jantan from Universiti Teknologi MARA, sharing their knowledge and experiences regarding the technology and their perception on the learning in the future. They also provide solutions in relation to teaching skills by using technology. At the end of the seminar, they provided a forum session to discuss the questions raised by guest lecturers. The forum also gave us new knowledge and exposure regarding learning.
eLCS's booth generated much interest from the academia, providing the spectrum of products to end-to-end solutions in sync with what the community is heading towards. From these events, we can know that more and more learning professionals such as lecturers and also the general public are adapting to the change in the methods of learning, from book-learning format to eLearning format. Let us work hand-in-hand for the new culture of learning and teaching.
