Progress Presentation (5 and 6 February 2014)

Dear students...

A good day wish to all.

I think everyone has been waiting for the progress presentation event. We have now finalized the schedule of the event which will be held from 5 to 6 February 2014 (Wednesday and Thursday). Please find the schedule attached to assist you to identify which slot you will attend. As mentioned in our earlier email 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. Kindly inform me if I miss out anyone. Your attendance is COMPULSORY. However, in any event that you could not attend the presentation, kindly send an official letter to the Dean in advance for our recording purpose.

Please 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 (kindly show to the panel of assessors the HARD COPY of your draft chapters), 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 
5) Progress-to-date [i.e. 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 Department.

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. 

Thank you for your support and hope to see you all then.

Best regards,
Dr Suhaily Hasnan
