This paper presents the key findings from a training needs analysis conducted among educators of maritime training in Malaysia. The purpose of this research is to identify the areas of needs to improve the teaching delivery of maritime education. The analysis was conducted on 30 educators of the training institution. Data was collected from various sources namely student evaluations, classroom observations, and interviews. Data was then analyzed qualitatively to identify the training needs in six key dimensions: pedagogical skills, classroom management, use of ICT (Information Communication Technology), meta-cognition, student engagement and communication skills. The results were subsequently verified to ensure that findings were objective and credible. Data triangulation and methodological triangulations were achieved using the multiple sources of data and multiple coders. The assessment resulted in the identification of training needs among the educators.
Key findings are presented in the paper. This research provides a preliminary snapshot of the current scenario on the quality of teaching delivery and training needs of a modern maritime training institution in Malaysia, drawing from a wide range of variables. Previous empirical studies have yet to be conducted on this area involving such an institution in Malaysia. The benefit of this cross-sectional study design enables the individual educators and the institution’s management to use the data in planning and decision-making in the near future.
Keywords: Teaching delivery; training needs; evaluation; maritime education.

(This research project is funded under a research grant from UNESCO Bangkok)
The UNESCO Forum on Open Courseware in 2002 and the Paris Declaration at World OER Congress are the two important milestones in the development of OERs. Malaysian Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) from the public sector has been actively involved in the development and promotion of OERs in Malaysia since then. The development and awareness of OER among Malaysian schools are still uncharted. The study aims in finding out the status of awareness, usage, intention to use OER in future and the contribution of OER by Malaysian secondary school teachers. A structured survey was conducted in one of the Malaysian secondary school and a total of 138 teachers responded. The findings are: (i) the intention to use OER in schools is high although the awareness, usage level and contribution to OER are low; (ii) the barriers to use of OER in schools are it is time consuming, difficulty in locating OER and the reliability and validity of OER (the top three in the list); (iii) benefits identified are it can enhance users’ knowledge, sharing best practice and enhance current practice (the top three in the list); (iv) the common OER used by teachers are PowerPoint slide, images and assessment (the top three in the list) and (v) the five constructs from the modified TAM model are highly correlated. The study explores the status of awareness and usage of OER in Malaysian schools and it provides some preliminary knowledge to the authority concerned if further promotion and development of OER if it were to carry out in future.

The rapid growth of ICT in the past decades raises many social and ethical issues, ranging from online safety and security, misuse of information and to mental hazard. Worldwide, concerns have been raised over various forms of ICT abuses affecting children and adolescents. The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) estimated that youths aged 15-24 years old form 30% of the total internet users in this region. Recognising such concerns, UNESCO Bangkok has undertaken the “Fostering Digital Citizenship through Safe and Responsible Use of ICT” Project that aims to promote policy dialogue on ethical, safe, and responsible use of ICT and in building the education sector’s capacity in fostering digital citizenship among children. The report synthesises cases, initiatives, and national responses related to the safe and responsible use of ICT. In Malaysia, in 2013, the DigiCyberSAFE in Schools programme administered a survey on 9,651 students aged 7 to 18 (primary and secondary school students) on their levels of awareness and understanding of cybersafety issues, appropriate online behaviour and ability to safeguard themselves against risks.
In line with the previous research, the current study is conducted on university students, aged from 19 to 24. The research aims to identify the level of awareness of safe and responsible use of ICT among Higher Education students in Malaysia. Both qualitative and quantitative research methods are used. Survey questionnaire is used to find out the awareness and understanding of cyber-safety issues and the ability to safeguard against risks. Focus group interview is used to examine students’ perceptions and experiences of risky online activities. It is hoped that the findings would help identify gaps between policy and practice that would need to be addressed or further enhanced by policy-makers.

Chee Keong Chong, Chee Heong Lee, Mahmud Abdul Wahab, Siew Yee Lau, Chung Yee Liew and Pek Hoon Er. Enhancement of Reflective Practice with the Help of Microsoft OneNote. Presented at the UNESCO Regional Seminar for RDTCs 2015, 11-13 November 2015, Guangzhou, China.
(This research project is funded under a research grant from UNESCO Bangkok)
Reflective practice has been a crucial component for continuous learning and improvement and has been adopted in many fields. However, this is not a common practice especially in Higher Education Providers (HEP) in Malaysia. This study is to survey the awareness and the practice of reflective practice and how reflective practice contributes to the enhancement in preparing Course Report in a private HEP in Malaysia. The objectives of the study is to find out the factors that influence the use of reflective practice and hence to suggest possible the enhancement in course reporting. The research questions involved are: (i) what are the factors that will influence the use of reflective practice? (ii) is Microsoft OneNote useful and practical in reflective practice. The factors involved are the use of technology, self-efficacy, ability to self-access and awareness of how one learns. The study is divided into three stages: Stage one of the study involved a workshop on the concept of reflective practice particularly the Gibbs’ model and the procedure to implement Microsoft OneNote for reflective practice. A survey questionnaire was administered after Stage One of the study to survey the inclination among the respondents towards the use of Gibbs’s model and Microsoft OneNote for reflective practice. Stage two involved the lecturers’ hand-on experience with Microsoft OneNote for reflective practice in course reporting. Stage three of the study involves in-depth focus group interview to triangulate quantitative results obtained from questionnaire. The study employed both quantitative and qualitative approaches. Findings showed that even though the majority of respondents were receptive towards the use of Gibbs’s model and Microsoft OneNote for reflective practice at initial stage and experimented with the Gibbs’s model and Microsoft OneNote, the implementation of the Gibbs’s model using OneNote was far from expectation. Many put blames on the technical issues on the use of Microsoft OneNote for reflective practice and the burden of conducting the reflective practice using Gibbs’s model and questioned the suitability of applying Gibbs’ model in course reporting as there is component to reflect on feeling experienced. Perhaps more conducive working conditions and intense training should be provided in order to obtain the desired outcomes.

The study aims to evaluate the intervention of 21st Century Learning Design (21CLD) on UNESCO-ICT-Competency Framework for Teachers (UNESCO-ICT-CFT) in Malaysian schools. The study is divided into three stages. Stage one is on evaluation of teachers’ ICT competency standards using UNESCO-ICT-CFT. Stage two is on the exposure of 21CLD and UNESCO-ICT-CFT to teachers and the implementation of 21CLD and UNESCO-ICT-CFT in teaching and learning. Stage three is the assessment stage whereby evaluation is carried out to find out whether there is any significant difference in the intervention of 21CLD on ICT competency standards for teachers. The empirical data and interview results are drawn from a sample of three Malaysian primary schools, two urban and one rural. The data are collected using questionnaire and semi-structured focus group interview. The data is then analyzed using simple descriptive statistics, and qualitative analysis report. The outcome of this study could provide valuable knowledge and insights to education decision-makers in encouraging them to expedite the integration of ICT-in-Education and the 21CLD into the teaching and learning process in Malaysian schools.

The integration of technology in teaching and learning is essential in the development of any nation. It is one of the key areas that the Malaysian government has identified in its plans and policies to digitize and globalize education. Malaysia’s National Education Blueprint 2013 however reported that 80% of school teachers in Malaysia use Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) for less than one (1) hour each week, and students perceive that teachers are not regular ICT users. This study measures the level of resistance of technology use among educators in institutions of higher learning in Malaysia. A review of past research found many studies using the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Usage of Technology (UTAUT) as a model to measure user intention and behavior. UTAUT was consistently cited in its ability explain factors related to technology usage and acceptance. Thus, UTAUT was adopted and the items reversed. This study presents the conceptual idea pertaining to validating the instrument by reversed items. Future research will involve a larger number of respondents.

Technology use in teaching and learning has long been discussed. The integration of technology in teaching and learning is essential in the development of the nation. It is one of the key areas that the Malaysian government has identified in its plans and policies to digitize and globalize education. The Malaysia’s National Education Blueprint 2013, however, reported that 80% of school teachers in Malaysia used Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) for less than 1 hour each week, and students perceive that teachers are not regular ICT users. This study aims to measure the level of resistance of technology use among educators in institutions of higher learning. Review of past researches found many theoretical frameworks proposed for the explanations of ICT usage but none of those estimate the level of technology resistance. The Unified Theory of Acceptance and Usage of Technology (UTAUT) was consistently cited and proved to explain factors related to technology usage and acceptance. Thus, UTAUT was adopted and the items reversed. This paper presents the results of the first phase of this study which involved a pilot test conducted among 30 respondents reporting the reliability of the instrument. Future research would involve a larger number of respondents.

Malaysia’s vision to become a developed nation in the year 2020 drives its plans towards digitalisation. As such, education policies in the Malaysia have gradually incorporated information and communication technologies. The Malaysian government’s Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC) initiative is instrumental in digitizing the nation in various dimensions such as governance, health and education. Planned change is realised in the form of development plans and policies. Planning development is the government’s major activity in almost every country. It should also be noted that digitization and information communication technologies initiatives took place and were politically and socially grounded throughout the 1990s during the time of the fourth prime minister Tun Mahathir Mohamad. Globally, emerging economies would have to face the competition with developed nations. Therefore, it is an exigent task in planning change. This study aims to conceptualise digitising education in Malaysia in that context. It then describes the planning machinery and examines the development plans and official reports. This study uses secondary data from texts and documents as well as policy imperatives in Malaysia to problematize the digititalising of education in Malaysia. It was found that Malaysia is going through a series of changes by using development planning and the management of change as a tool to realise its goals towards achieving the status of a high-income developed nation In its quest for modernisation and development in the information age, the government attempts to build a solid foundation to position itself as a developer and supplier of ICT. However, the government also aims to ensure balanced development and growth with equity whereby participation in the knowledge-based economy reflects the ethnic composition and the general demographic characteristics of the population.

The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 21-22 June 2012. (Thompson-ISI indexed)
This study is an extension from the previous study done by Chong et al (2011) on the use of online resources in teaching and learning in a local private traditional university. It has been reported in many studies that the use of technologies such as animations and simulations does enhance the effectiveness of teaching and learning. However, it has been pointed out at the same time that there are several factors that dilute the expected outcomes of the use of these technologies. As the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA) has enforced the change in the national education system from teacher-centred to student-centred, it is important to have each of these technologies used accustomed to the needs of the students. This study intends to look into (i) the female and the male respondents’ attitude and perception towards the simulation used in their learning, (ii) the helpful aspects of the simulation, and (iii) the possible areas of improvement for the simulation in order to help stimulate the respondents to learn. Through the frequency test it was found that the female respondents generally have better attitude and perception in trying out the Photoelectric Effect (PE) simulation, and more receptive towards the proposed improvements. However, the paired t-test showed there is no significant difference between female and male respondents in most of the area surveyed. The correlation matrix reflected the design of PE simulation is remarkably good that it promoted the learning attitude and experience of all the respondents. However, this drove the male respondents for self inquiry while the female respondents were looking for guided questions and PE experiment based on wave theory as a comparison with photon theory in order to further enhance the understanding. The similarities and differences in using Photoelectric Effect simulation and other similar technologies between the female and the male students in learning and teaching should be acknowledged and attended to, in order to deepen their understanding of the topics learned and to avoid any discrepancy in the long run.

Most fundamental science and mathematical courses at the tertiary education cover the depth and breadth of abstract concepts and their applications. Higher order thinking skills such as problem-solving and critical thinking are part of the learning outcomes of these courses. In every semester of an academic year, a large group of tertiary learners from different degree programs with disparity in cognitive ability, prior knowledge, learning styles and past experience will register for these courses. Hence, it is indeed a challenging task for the instructor concerned to design a standardized instruction to enhance learning experience and facilitate the achievement of the course learning outcomes among tertiary learners involved. Furthermore, it is vital to homogenize the learners’ prior knowledge before active and reflective learning strategies can be effectively implemented in lectures to enhance learners’ motivation, interest, engagement and self-efficacy. This paper elaborates the importance of pre-lecture instruction in reducing prior knowledge deficiency of tertiary learners in their first-year basic core subjects. The pre-lecture instruction proposed is integrated with learners’ experiential learning and cognitive information processing to facilitate evaluation and synthesis of knowledge. On top of it, the pre-lecture instruction accommodates learners with different levels of prior knowledge, learning preference and past experience in order to establish and extend a pool of inter-connected knowledge constructs in the learners’ long-term memory for new learning to take place. Information and Communications Technology (ICT) has been recommended as a mediating tool in the presentation of pre-lecture instruction to engage learners with visual, verbal and kinesthetic preferences as well as to provide timely feedback of pre-lecture assessment to both instructors and learners before commencement of the subsequent lectures.
Keywords: Pre-lecture instruction, experiential learning, cognitive information processing, tertiary learners.

This paper describes a training and information system being developed within the framework of a research project for the England Optical Group (EOG), one of the well-known optical chain stores in Malaysia. The research project involves the development of interactive multimedia-based CBT modules called "EOG CBT Software". Its central objective is to convey information about EOG and provide workplace skills training. The "EOG CBT Software" is designed with the hope that it can provide a new style of workplace training to EOG employees in a more dynamic and exciting environment. "EOG CBT Software" consists of four modules covering various topic areas about optical industry that learners can work through in sequence at their own pace. The software is then playing its role to handle the multimedia training and communications. The software is hoped to become a very cost-effective training delivery method that is uniquely experiential and intuitive for the learners.

A Preliminary Study on the Use of Online Resources in Quantitative Techniques for First Year Business Students in a Malaysian Private University. 16th Asian Technology Conference in Mathematics (ATCM 2011), 19-23 September 2011, AIBU, Bolu, Turkey.
In this paper we intend to find out the awareness of students and the use of online resources provided by text book publishers. The online resources identified are MS PowerPoint slides (plain and narrated), audio lectures, MS Excel templates and Java applets on statistical concepts. The usage level of these was found to be low except for plain MS PowerPoint slides which are common among students. On the other hand after the demonstration by the lecturer, most of the students considered these to be useful in their Quantitative Techniques studies. Recommendations were made to integrate MS Excel and Java applets for the study of Quantitative Techniques.

Listening plays a crucial part for overseas students in the United Kingdom. Students can never follow a lecture or discussion in English without listening. Traditional classroom teaching in listening limits students' time and space. However, the web-based listening course accommodates listeners a great deal, enabling them to access the Internet at their own pace. In this paper, I would like to look at a language learning website for developing learners' listening skills, designed by the Centre for English Language Education (CELE) at the University of Nottingham. In the first part, I shall review the issues concerning listening, conventional materials design, Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL) and actual websites established for English Academic Purposes (EAP). Through analysis, I would develop a set of evaluation criteria in order to evaluate the CELE listening website. These guidelines should also be helpful for teachers and students to select suitable listening on-line materials. By using these criteria and comparing with other websites for similar purposes, I would highlight the strengths and weaknesses of the CELE website and offer suggestions for its improvement. In the last section, I would consider the generalisability of the website in respect of design principles, exercise types and tools, to check whether it is appropriate for teaching listening in a specific context and whether it is applicable for creating a parallel site developing reading skills.

This study involved 279 students which are made up of 60% male and 40% female from a traditional private university in Malaysia towards the usage of an eLearning portal, known as Web-Based Learning Environment (WBLE). An extended Technology Acceptance Model (extended TAM) was used as a framework to study the factors that affect the use of WBLE. The four main factors identified are perceived usefulness, perceived ease of use, peer/lecturer support and facilities support. A total of seven hypotheses were formulated and the results indicated that peer/lecturer support has a significant effect on perceived usefulness; perceived usefulness has a significant effect on the usage of WBLE but not perceived ease of use, which is in contradiction to the results of TAM. This could be explained by the fact that most students are digital natives so the ease of using the system is not in their consideration for adoption of any information system. Finally, the usage of WBLE does not show any correlation on individual performance. These results could be extended to other institutions of the same set ups to avoid pitfalls during implementation.

Due to its complex nature in characters and unique pronunciation system, Chinese language has been recognised as one of the languages which require substantial effort to learn. There are some instructors who realise that learning Chinese in traditional approach using printed textbook or audio CDs alone is insufficient to meet the needs of learners; some instructors may find that it is not easy to teach Chinese, especially the pronunciation and Chinese writing. Thus, for effective learning to take place, an instructor should use effective teaching methods and create an environment conducive to learning. With the rapid development of science and technology today, multimedia teaching has gradually entered the day-to-day classroom. The infusion of multimedia into educational settings has changed the way of teaching and learning. Educators have been using multimedia to enrich the content of teaching-learning; this is because multimedia is able to offer the experience of listening, looking and doing in a computer-mediated setting. The use of text, graphics, animation, sound, and video enables the user to experience the real world situations which may not be possible with conventional methods of instruction. With multimedia objects, learners will be able to learn Chinese language more efficiently.

Proceedings of Globalization and Localization in CALL International Conference 2010 (GLoCALL 2010), 1 - 3 December 2010, Le Meridien Hotel, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia.
This paper reveals the idea of an ongoing research project. More than 2,500 universities in 100+ countries currently offer Chinese language courses. Almost all higher institutions in Malaysia offer Chinese as a second language (some may consider as third language) course. Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman offers an elective subject called 'Introduction to Chinese Language I' to teach the basis of Chinese language to non-Chinese educated students. Generally, the vast majority of foreign language teaching is conducted face-to-face in classrooms. Teaching a language in the classroom improves when technological components take and extend the functionality of the traditional ones. This paper would explore the possibilities of introducing a blended learning approach in the Malaysian TCSL (Teaching Chinese as a Second Language) classrooms at University level. Three crucial elements in learning Chinese as a second language are pronunciation, Chinese writing, as well as listening and speaking skills.
Balamuralithara, B. “Interactive Learning Package for Turbo Code System”. Proceedings of International Conference on Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, November 2009, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Learning engineering subjects requires the students to observe, describe, predict and interact with the physical state of problem. The process of teaching modern communication engineering system became a major challenge due to the high complexity and the complicated performance analysis involved in this subject .On the other hand, the students are facing difficulties to see or experience the phenomena that being taught as the subject are too complex to be visualized. This problem often leads to an inability to learn basic principles and their practical relevance to be implemented in real life. Computer technologies has had revolutionize the engineering teaching and learning process and one of it is the interactive teaching that combines both lecture notes and practical exercises. Thus with utilizing advancement in computer technology, a Matlab-Simulink based interactive teaching of Turbo code system -a subject in communication engineering -was developed. We would like to evaluate the effectiveness of the developed Matlab-Simulink based interactive package for Turbo Code System from students’ perspective.

Proceedings of 2nd International Conference: Issues in Language Teaching and Learning amongst Non-Native Speakers (ILANNS 2009), 2009, Shah Alam, Selangor, Malaysia.
As the Chinese-speaking areas are becoming the focus of the world economy, more and more people are attracted by their language and culture. The number of beginners in Chinese language is growing rapidly. However, the teaching of the Chinese language has always suffered from an absence of suitable instructional materials. The wide spread of multimedia technology and the advent of the Internet provide convenience for language learning and expand possibilities for using them to support language instruction. This paper describes the creation of a blended learning environment for the instruction of an elective subject called ‘Introduction to Chinese Language I’. The elective subject provides the basis of Chinese language to non-Chinese educated students. The term “Blended Learning” has gained considerable interest among educators and researchers in recent years as a description of particular forms of teaching combined with technology. In this project, the elective subject for Chinese learning is supplemented with a paper textbook called “Learn Chinese with Ease” (《轻轻松松学华语》), resource website called WBLE (Web-based Learning Environment), and an interactive multimedia courseware called ECLearn (E-Book for Chinese Learning). ECLearn is an electronic version of the existing paper textbook containing a variety of educational activities. Through the blended learning environment, the students learn Chinese through the Hanyu Pinyin system of Romanisation. Besides, students are taught appropriate elementary level vocabulary and grammar, Chinese characters, and oral communication skills in situational contexts.

There are three writing system of Japanese language – Hiragana, Katakana and Kanji. Hiragana is the one mostly used in Japan. Hiragana consists of 46 basic sounds and 62 extended sounds. People have to master the pronunciation of these characters in advance hence proceed to learn vocabulary and grammar in Japanese. However, there are some instructors who realize that learning Japanese in traditional approach using paper textbook or audio CDs alone is insufficient to meet the needs of learners; some instructors may find that it is not easy to teach Japanese, especially pronunciation. Thus, for effective learning to take place, an instructor should use effective teaching methods and create an environment conducive to learning. There is, therefore, a need for developing an interactive multimedia instructional tool which may enrich the learning environment. This paper describes an interactive multimedia courseware called “Japanese Language Learning (Hiragana): For Dummies”. Four interrelated learning modules are built into this courseware: Hiragana, Vocabulary, Conversation, and Self Test. The development tools used include Adobe Director, Adobe Flash, Adobe Photoshop, and Sound Forge. Learners can work through modules integrated in “Japanese Language Learning (Hiragana): For Dummies” at their own pace in a pleasant and appealing manner. The courseware is hoped to become an effective learning delivery method that is uniquely experiential and intuitive for learners.

Grammar, and Its Implication for the Language Classroom English as an
International Language”. 14-16 October 2009, The English as an International Language
Journal, Asian EFL Journal & Dokuz Eylül University Izmir, Turkey.
Grammar is the skeleton of any language. It is a tool for making meanings and it provides guidance for using the language appropriately. Recent research has shown that application of meaning-focused activities alone in the classroom does not guarantee the competence of using the language appropriately. Larsen-Freeman (2003) suggests that the accuracy is not simply about the right form but it is also about the appropriate choice for the intended meaning. Therefore, the role of grammar instructions in the classroom has again earned great interest from researchers and teachers. Language educators have focused more on exploring the language used in cultural and situational contexts. As a result, the view of grammar has also changed into a broader concept rather than the traditional view of grammar as a system of rules in a language. DeCarrico and Larsen-Freeman (2002) state that grammar is not only a set of structures, but it also involves three dimensions which are form, meaning and use of language in social, cultural and situational contexts. The basic elements of context are relationship between participants, topic, setting (place & time) and purpose (what speakers want to achieve). The purpose of this paper is to discuss grammar in the above statement and its implications for grammar instructions in the ESL classroom.
