The participants came from the United States, Australia, South Africa, New Zealand, Philippines, Iran, Taiwan, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Singapore to partake in the 2-day convention which was held for the first time.
The conference, sponsored by Bank Rakyat Malaysia witnessed the attendance of 70 international participants and 180 from Malaysia.
Aptly themed ’Enhancing Human Capital through Teacher Education’, the conference aimed to discuss on current issues, challenges and to seek for the dynamic effect of an educator.
Vice Chancellor of UPM, Prof. Datuk Dr. Nik Mustapha R. Abdullah said the convention was an ideal educational platform for knowledge sharing and professional interaction between students and local trainers or ones from abroad.
”I believe that the outcome of the research and discussions will be able to assist us to escalate our productivity as well as the efficacy of each learning organization,” he said.
