The sumptuous and delectable cakes specially for ISDEV lecturers.

As a sign of appreciation to the lecturers and in conjunction with Teachers' Day Celebration which fell on 16 May 2014, MISDEV'13 (Postgraduate Mixed-Mode students) students organized a Murabbi Day Celebrations on 21 May, 2014.

The event was attended by ISDEV Director, Professor Muhammad Syukri Salleh, ISDEV lecturer Dr. Mohd Shukri Hanapi and fellows of the Academic Staff Training Scheme (ASTS) as well as ISDEV Research Officers (RO).

All eyes were on the screen to reminisce the sweet moments thus far MISDEV'13 students have with ISDEV lecturers.

The event began with a short video showing some momentous occasions in 2014 between ISDEV lecturers and MISDEV'13 students. There was also a poem recital on ‘Guru’ cited from the literary works of Sasterawan Negara (National Laureate) Usman Awang by one of the students, Shamfariza.

Even though some lecturers were not able to attend, the event went full swing with a gift presentation session. ISDEV Director, Professor Syukri representing the rest of ISDEV lecturers also took the opportunity to deliver a meaningful speech to the students.

Feeling grateful and humbled, Prof Syukri addressing MISDEV'13 students

Prof. Syukri stated that the award is not the main goal of academicians, especially the lecturers who are the teachers in ISDEV. However, recognition and such a tribute as organized by students such as MISDEV13 nonetheless is a delight to them. He also added that the greatest educator is the teacher who teaches one how to read and write. He concluded his speech by reminding that students should always appreciate a teacher even when they have already succeeded in their life. The event ended with a nasyid (Islamic songs) performance and a simple lunch reception.
