Tenby Shah Alam Campus Visit to MUM
Dr. Marek W. Rutkowski, lecturer in global studies, conducted a workshop entitled "Linking Past and Present: What history can tell us about the world today?" for the Tenby International School Setia Eco Park Year 12 students on 21 June 2019. Looking at ongoing crises over North Korea and Kashmir, the workshop was set to expose the students to historical roots of present-day global events. The students were asked to work in groups to deepen their knowledge through interactive tasks, for which Dr. Marek graded them.
At first, they were tasked to prepare white board presentation explaining causes and consequences of the two crises in a form of a mind map or other preferred method. Later, they were guided by Dr. Marek to engage in a debate on the topic of nuclear weapons, vital to the context of North Korea and Kashmir.
The students performed very well and enjoyed themselves throughout the session. As a recognition of their efforts, both winning and losing team went home with prizes. At the end, Dr. Marek briefed the participants on the courses and majors offered in the School of Arts and Social Sciences as well as extracurricular activities that prospective students can engage it.
