Breezy visit to Sunway University Malaysia & Nanyang Singapre

It was another quick visit to Kuala Lampur (Malaysia) and Singapore.  It was the first. But it was such a lovely one!

Christo and I were the guest of Sunway University/ College (under Victoria University, Melbourne). The College is situated in an 850-acre Sunway City. The City , especially the University itself is located in the luscious greenery, which is anyone’s eye-sore! Imagine to walk on a steel flyover, below which walk live tigers and sun bears! And then, on the right and the left, you have such visual wealth  – lagoon / theme parks!

Dr Benedict is a very cordial host, whose primary job is to teach at Sunway College/ University.

But he takes extra interest in international collaboration. So, it is his initiative.

It was lovely meeting Dr Elizabeth Lee! Such a lovely lady, with so much energy and joy. And Dr Theo who handles ACCA programs. And Ms Greeja of VU.

After spending hectic two days in Kuala Lampur, we took a bus to Singapore. Though it was a weekend (and on weekends they don’t work!), Nanyang Technological University (NTU) was extremely good to me to give time.

It was not just a visit – Prof. Salmon went out of his way to welcome me and my colleague Dr Christo. And then we spent quite a bit of time exchanging our thoughts and views on communication education and students and working together.

And then he invited us to witness one of their interesting practices – mock session on Crisis Communication. It is not new to us – we do quite a few similar things here at St Joseph’s College. But the passion with which students were preparing for it, and took part in it was brilliant!

A brief visit to remember but an exciting experience to cherish.
