URGENT: Progress Presentation (23 and 24 July 2013)

Dear students...

A good day wish to all and Salam Ramadhan.

I think everyone has been waiting for the progress presentation event. We now have finalized schedule of the event which will be held during our visiting professor (Prof Dr Sakthi Mahenthiran) visit; i.e. from 22-29 July 2013. Please find the progress presentation schedule as attached. As mentioned in our earlier email dated 2 July 2013 regarding the above, please be reminded that ALL research students in Semester 3 onwards who have passed the Defence Research Proposal MUST present their progress as below. Your attendance is COMPULSORY. 

Kindly take note of the following to incorporate in your progress presentation:

a) Students in Semester 3 and 4
You are required to present for 10 minutes, via power point presentation, followed by 5 minutes of Q&A by the panel of assessors. Please make 3 copies of your handouts for the assessors. Kindly do not present what you have presented before but rather the progress you have made from last semester to the current date as well as your time line (see attached for Student Supervision Timeline)

b) Students in Semester 5 onwards
You are also required to present for 10 minutes, via power point presentation, followed by 5 minutes of Q&A by the panel of assessors. Please make 3 copies of your handouts for the assessors. Remember, please present progress. You are required to show your chapter buildup, drafts of your write-up to date, contents, publication to date and plan to complete. We would expect at least the expected number of draft chapters to be written as per the time line given (see attached for Student Supervision Timeline).

As general guidelines, the following points may be incorporated in your power point slides (please make it short and clear):
1) Problem statement
2) Research objectives
3) Conceptual framework
4) Research design and methodology (please exclude your hypotheses development)
5) Progress-to-date [e.g. draft chapters (kindly show to the panel of assessors the draft chapters), publication to date, conferences attended]
6) What are the predicaments faced? How do you plan to overcome the challenges faced?
7) Are you on time-according to the Student Supervision Timeline?
8) State any kind of assistance you need from the Postgraduate Office.

We look forward for your cooperation and please kindly do not request for change of time and panels. Kindly provide the whole morning/afternoon free for the presentation (depending on the timing of your slot) as we cannot promise when your turn will start and end. We also hope that you can stay throughout the event as to give moral support to other presenters. For semester 1 and 2 students, you are also invited and encouraged to attend any of the presentations to observe how the presentations are conducted for reference. Hope to see you all then.

Best regards,
Dr Suhaily Hasnan
Coordinator (Research)
Postgraduate Office
Faculty of Accountancy
