Empowering Education Malaysia event recap

Posted by Jenny Wong on May 20, 2019

On the 3rd of April this year Tribal hosted its very first Empowering Education Seminar in Malaysia. At the event delegates learned how institutions can improve rankings, financial performance, student experience, results, retention and recruitment. The seminar included keynote presentations and panel discussions with senior leaders from across the Malaysian Education sector. They were joined by Tribal experts from our software and education services business. 

Some of the key themes from the event were the importance of student experience, retention and results and the technology that can underpin these, here’s what some of our speakers had to say...

Gavin Gomez, Registrar and Chief Governance Officer, Monash University Malaysia

“Staying close to the ground and understanding what the demands of the students are and how to respond to technology in a generation that’s very much mobile-first”

Dr. Wendy Yee, Director – CITRa, University of Malaya 

“It’s the experiential learning that the students will get good student experience because they will realise the real meaning of learning and education.” 

 

Siti Fariza Mohd Dahlan, Director – University Services, Sunway University

“The shift is towards personalise learning so we need to ensure that we provide the technology to support their learning environment”

Jon Baldwin, Managing Director of Higher Education, Tribal Group

“Technology should be a strong supporting agent and be used in ways that simplify and add value to student life.” 

The event was very well received with excellent feedback from delegates. It was great to discuss how education is evolving in Malaysia and share insights on how Tribal and our customers are adapting fit changing student expectations. 

See you soon Malaysia and keep an eye out for our next Empowering Education Event.
