I was a teacher at primary and secondary schools in Malaysia from 1980 to 1989. I joint IIUM in late 1987 as an Assistant Lecturer. I acquired a Master's Degree from the Inst of Education, Uni of London and PhD in Education from Uni of Birmingham, UK. At the present, I'm lecturing on few courses including educational administration, social studies, pedagogy, and curriculum to the undegraduate and postgraduate students at the Institute of Education, IIUM. Infact, these are also my area of research interest which I had led as a principal researcher and participated as a committee member.
