Biography

I started teaching in a government secondary school in Kuala Krai, Kelantan way back in 1983. I went on to lecture in the Royal Military College (RMC). Thereafter, I further my studies at Ph.D. level, quit the government service and lectured in private colleges and universities.

I designed and conducted academic skills training for lecturers (face-to-face mode) and I also designed and conducted online moderation course for e-instructor. This course is to prepare lecturers who wish to teach online. I facilitated two online courses for the Laureate Education Group. In these courses, we had a rich combination of participants from Asia, Europe and United States of America.

My latest training programme is called Lecturer e-Training Programme (LeP). It is conducted in a blended mode, that is, the first two stages of LeP are online and we only meet face-to-face in Stage 3. This programme is approved by HRDF (Human Resources Development Fund) under SBL Khas scheme.

My research interests are in the areas of student centred teaching and learning, in particular, design and implementation of instructional strategies, e-learning in blended mode, and educational technologies in support of student centred teaching and learning. I am also interested in the various assessment methods for learning and not evaluation of learning.

In order to complement the shift from teacher centred to student centred teaching and learning, there is a need to re-design the curriculum which is also my research focus area.
