ADeC is collaborating with the Department of Media Studies, Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences to launch a pilot project "Aspiring Academics Program". Through this program, UM postgraduate students who aspire to one day join academia as lecturers learn about the ins and outs of an academic career. The program includes workshops on teaching and learning (T&L), training on developing an academic portfolio, talks by eminent scholars, sharing sessions with new and established lecturers, as well as practical training in teaching university-level courses and mentorship under a UM lecturer.  UM lecturers are welcomed to collaborate with the Aspiring Academics program as mentors, workshop trainers or sharing session guests.
