How UiTM Puncak Alam Ran The Best Webinar Ever

Image
In October last year, my former student from SMK Katibas asked if I could conduct a talk for her class at UiTM Puncak Alam. Although I was rushing to finish two books before the start of the new academic year, I always make an effort to say yes to former students, teachers, or lecturers. Little did I know, I would have the pleasure of presenting at a masterclass in webinar organization. Here's what they did right... ~~~PRE-WEBINAR~~~ 1. I was contacted months in advance and was able to comfortably make time. 2. The webinar was postponed to a later date selected at my convenience. 3. The UiTM Puncak Alam students were resourceful & got all the necessary photos and an up to date bio from the internet for their promotional materials. 4. Respectfully worded reminders were sent on WhatsApp prior to the webinar. 5. My refusal to give them a copy of my slides was accepted. 6. Links to the webinar were provided the day before. ~~~DURING~~~ 1. After the welcoming speeches, a comedy vide

NST Feature: When The Going Gets Tough

Grateful to be featured in the New Straits Times alongside awesome teachers, Cikgu Nor Azizah Md Nordin from SMK Kemumin, Kota Baru, & Cikgu Thiba Lakshmii from Pusat Tuisyen Sinar Idealis, Klang. Thank you, Mr Izwan Ismail & NST for highlighting our YouTube channels. I hope that they'll be useful to every student in need of extra guidance. 🤩 This piece of recognition was a pretty timely boost because I was really down this morning after discovering a few students going afk during my online teaching session. Their devices were logged into Jitsi (a free Zoom alternative) but when I asked for responses... nothing. This happened multiple times. Even at the end, when I said bye, I waited for 1 minute to no response. 😔 I spent a few hours after that licking my wounds & wondering if I was being too demanding or expecting too much. I realized that I can go the cynical path, but I can't be an effective teacher if I don't believe that they can/want to improve. I have t

Kenapa Cikgu Rasuah Pelajar Mengikuti Kelas?

Inilah sebabnya cikgu bagi top up RM10 sebulan kepada pelajar yang mengikuti kelas atas talian. Cikgu yang mengeluarkan duit untuk membantu pelajar tolong angkat tangan! Sekolah dah tutup. PdPR dah berlangsung dalam talian / secara jarak jauh. Dah bermula juga kecaman macam-macam terhadap guru Malaysia. Sesetengah keyboard warriors Malaysia ini macam otaknya tertinggal di zaman neolitik. Kalau nak kritik, boleh. Kritik la dengan otak sikit. Tapi ini bagai air beriak tanda tak dalam. (Cikgu memang minat peribahasa Melayu.) Sampai waktu cikgu buat ceramah SPM percuma di YouTube (pautan ada di bawah) pun ada orang buat fake account & kacau di live chat / ruangan komen & dislike video-video cikgu. Lepas disekat pula, buka akaun lain & kacau lagi! Inilah asal usul troll . Lepas habis sekolah, jadi pula troll dewasa di media social. Dari PKP bulan Mac dulu, bila cikgu nak bantu & beri ganjaran top up kepada pelajar yang mengikuti kelas atas talian cikgu, banyak yang PM cikgu

Tolong share/forward webinar percuma ini kepada rakan-rakan/saudara-mara yang bakal menduduki peperiksaan SPM 2020! Walaupun topik adalah ujian Bahasa Inggeris SPM 1119, webinar ini tetap akan disampaikan dalam Bahasa Melayu demi membantu pelajar yang berasa kurang senang dengan BI. Objektif utama adalah anda memahami cara takel ujian tersebut. Bukannya untuk show-off kehebatan England cikgu. Harapan cikgu adalah pelajar yang hadir boleh lulus dengan senang melalui konsep-konsep/tip-tip/cara-cara yang telah cikgu hasilkan dan tambahbaik selama lebih daripada sedekad! Cikgu mempunyai ramai anak-anak didik yang lemah dalam BI & telah gagal dalam ujian BI sepanjang kehidupan mereka. Tetapi banyak di kalangan mereka akhirnya lulus dengan bimbingan cikgu.
