Day 338 Task – PhD VIVA for My 1st PhD Student

A NEW MILESTONE…

Syukur Alhamdulillah akhirnya perjuangan pelajar PhD saya berakhir dengan jayanya, dan kini boleh bergelar Dr. Nur Nazlina Saimon. Perjuangan yang penuh cabaran, dugaan selama bergelar PhD student akhirnya selesai dan kini tinggal siapkan sedikit correction. Perjalanan PhD yang tentunya memaparkan pelbagai episod warna warni dan epilog suka duka tiba jua ke penghujungnya.

7 tahun lepas pada masa yang hampir sama saya berjaya selesaikan PhD saya (My SV was Prof Nor Aishah Saidina Amin (NASA)), dan hari ini dengan izin Allah saya berjaya bimbing pelajar PhD pertama saya. Anak sulung lah ni :).

Apa pun ini adalah milestone yang penting, sangat penting untuk Nazlina. Saya doakan semoga Nazlina berjaya dalam career dan berjaya dunia akhirat. You have been a very excellent student. Tahniah kepada En. Hamzah, suami Nazlina kerana kejayaan ini adalah kejayaan anda juga. Anda telah curahkan doa, semangat, pengorbanan dan bantuan tidak berbelah bagi kepada your other half dengan baiknya.

Terima kasih saya ucapkan kepada Penilai External Dato’ Prof. Dato’ Ir. Dr. Abdul Rahman Mohamed (USM) dan Penilai Internal Prof. Madya Dr. Mohd. Mohd Azizi Che Yunus (UTM). Terima kasih juga kepada Chairman Session Prof. Dr. Arshad Ahmad dan Assistant Chairman Dr. Mohd Asmadi Yussuf. Special thanks juga kepada Co-SV Prof. Madya Dr. Mazura Jusoh dan Prof. Madya Dr. Norzita Ngadi. We learnt a lot from your experienced superving numerous graduate students. Terima kasih juga kepada individu dan pihak lain yang bantu secara langsung dan tak langsung dalam membantu Nazlina. Tak lupa jga kepada team staf di Postgrad office.

Akhir sekali kita panjatkan kesyukuran mutlak kepada Allah, atas segala panduan, bantuan dn kurniaan.

Day 336 Task – Still eLPPT 7P Filling Up

The quest to complete the filling up of eLPPT continues. It is the continuity of the previous days as shown here in day 333 and here in day 334.

I believed I managed to complete almost all inputs and information plus its evidence by midnight. Alhamdulillah.

But, earlier in the morning, I had a rehearsal for CEE UTM Webminar that we will be hosting tomorrow, involving Prof Emiritus Richard Felder and Dr. Rebecca Brent. This is the second time we have both of them in a Webminar. Cannot wait for tomorrow.

Day 334 Task – Continuing Yesterday eLPPT Project

As mentioned yesterday, I continued to fill up this eLPPT online form that is to feed in all the evidences of our tasks throughout 2020.

But to be honest, the task did not last long as I got bored after sometime facing and focusing on the filling up process. On top of that, what contributed me to be slightly demotivated is that some of the tasks that I have, is not linked yet to the system and I could not see in actual the score of marks that I should have. I ended up teaming up with my daughters to paint a section of our wall that needs treatment.

Day 333 Task – Filling up eLPPT for 2020

I just learned few days ago that the deadline for us to fill up details on our detail tasks, activities for 2020 is this coming 30th November. Usually it is not that early, for the previous years.

Since this is urgent, I have to focus on this special task this very weekend. It’s not a short brief task as we need to gather all the evidences of all the tasks and activities that we have committed this year such as presenting in a conference, invitation as panel for a program, invitation as facilitator for certain program, manuscript reviewing tasks and much more.

One day is definitely not enough to complete the task, so I am expecting to continue this tomorrow. All the best Zaki 🙂

Day 330 Task – Mock Viva for My First PhD Student

Today we had a Mock Viva session for my first PhD student, Nur Nazlina Saimon which was conducted at our house. The venue was decided because students are not allowed to enter UTM yet unless he or she has official written permission from UTM student affairs, which will take quite some time to be obtained. Hence, we decided just to launched the Mock Viva at home, directly using Webex for her to present. The lecturers and students are used to online class and presentation but for Nazlina, she is not used to this because she’s a Phd student who do not require any online meeting or class, and I have only been contacting her for the passed months using whatsapp and email, if not a face to face meeting.

The session was very fruitful and a very long one. Nazlina is a very good and dedicated student. Imagine starting the session at 11am and it ended at 3.30pm. Many fundamental and basic questions were thrown by PM Dr. Mazura Jusoh, whom is co-supervisor #1. All her questions were really challenging yet important. I hope Nazlina will improved the slides and be better equipped for the second mock presentation next week, before heading to the Viva on the 2nd of December 2020. InsyaAllah. Amin.
