We invited academics and industry partners of UTM to attend the REPESEA National Conference (UTM Chapter) on 3rd October 2019. This is the final initiative of the project to disseminate the findings of the research.  We also combined the conference with a workshop on how to develop academic impact, namely through continuously producing quality publications.

Offering happiness to a less-fortunate group

August 03, 2019

One of the SAIQOR non-academic impact is the needs to focus on industry, cultural heritage and community.  In disseminating as well as testing SAIQOR, we travelled to east coast of Malaysia, trailing along the rural community of Kelantan to collaborate with a batik small and medium enterprise and special school (for less-abled children) in one of the rural community,  In this way, we were able to test SAIQOR n that one project could focus into three potential impacts- the small and medium industry, batik as the cultural heritage and the special-needs children of a rural, low income group.

In a half-day programme, we collaborated with Rumah Gahara to provide a batik canting session for special needs children from Sekolah Anak Ikan, Terengganu. Batik is a method of using wax and dye to decorate cloth, and canting is a pen-like tool used in batik process. The word batik is originated from Javanese word ‘tik’ which means dot. The children, from a low income family and have some special needs in education were exposed to the techniques to improve their cognitive skills and embrace cultural heritage.

In a hot sunny day, with strong breeze of winds from the nearby sea, we did something different this time. Instead of telling the public about who we are and what we do, we directly show them our REPESEA  value!
