ICI9 Conference for Information anjuran OUM

Ogos 6, 2009

Ucapan Aluan YBhg Tan Sri Anuwar Ali, Presiden/Naib Canselor OUM

Dear Distinguished Colleagues and Friends,

It gives me great pleasure to announce that Open University Malaysia (OUM) will be hosting the Ninth International Conference on Information (ICI9) this year. Our co-organisers are the Esterhazy Karoly College, Eger, Cadi Ayyad University Marrakech, Morocco and Delta Academy of Science, Egypt. The conference will be held in Kuala Lumpur from 12th to 13th August.

The nature of open learning, as we know, is dynamic. It involves using the latest and cutting-edge knowledge and technology to impart information to recipients in the best possible ways. Knowledge itself is rapidly evolving, with what we knew yesterday becoming obsolete today.

Therefore, it is incumbent upon providers of open learning to constantly innovate and explore new technologies. This is where we hope ICI9 will play a significant role. This is our platform to share ideas, views and experiences in introducing, using, sustaining and innovating new technologies for open learning. This leads to our theme for the conference – “Learning Innovations in Higher Education.”

The wisdom and knowledge garnered from this sharing are of great potential benefit to open learning institutions. These could be used to improve our current programmes, policies and service delivery. We can also improve our collective strength through mutual collaboration and synergetic cooperation.

Thus, I look forward to welcoming you in August 2009.

Professor Anuwar Ali
President, Open University Malaysia
