THE shift from face-to-face classes to online instruction in 2020 was an unprecedented disruption in many Malaysian schools, colleges and universities. Since then, many students experience varying degrees of discontentment with remote learning and isolation. They may feel stress and tension due to cabin fever, conflict with family members, Internet outages, procrastination, insufficient feedback, excessive school work or inadequate teacher-student communication. Some may even lament that their teachers are indifferent to their academic challenges. Nevertheless, such extraordinarily unfavourable circumstances lead many teachers to change their requirements for, or expectations of students by providing flexibility and accommodations. Empathy has greater significance in their pedagogy at a time when almost everyone is working under undue pressure.

I CAN sense the frustrations of the former Chief Conservator of Forests (CCF), Datuk Sam Mannan on the issue related to illegal entry into forest reserves under the Forest Enactment 1968. During his tenureship as CCF together with his deputy (who is the current CCF), we had discussions on it, and it had been more than 10 years the Sabah Forestry Department raised and brought the matter to the State Government to resolve it.

RECENTLY I had the opportunity to visit Bujang Valley in the state of Kedah. Interestingly, though I had heard about the place earlier, it was never on my priority list of places to visit.

https://www.nst.com.my/news/nation/2020/09/625711/sabah-ranks-malaysias-poorest-state-again A friend has just brought the above news item to my attention which should be saddening to those who are concerned with Sabah’s economy. I have no “heart” to delve into the details of this article. Just the headline “SABAH RANKS AS MALAYSIA’S POOREST STATE, AGAIN” is heart breaking.

OUR education system has not moved much from the period of British colonisation and the strategy of divide and rule. Dating back from the beginning of our education system, each race had their own vernacular education, with Malay, pondok, Chinese and Tamil schools.

EFFECTIVE teaching plays a crucial role in the acquisition of English as a Second Language (ESL) at college or university.  It requires lecturers to establish a favourable classroom environment, formulate a variety of teaching and learning activities, and utilise instructional materials efficaciously.  Effective ESL lecturers usually demonstrate good preparation based on their students’ interests and abilities, and are capable of creating stimulating teaching and learning environment through effective classroom organisation. They have the attributes, competencies, strategies and skills that can enhance students’ engagement.
