Building a career in academia, particularly in a top-ranked, competitive research university like UM can be very challenging, especially for newly-minted doctorate holders, and staff members new to UM. We at the Academic Enhancement and Leadership Development Centre (ADeC) are here to help new lecturer to begin their academic career in UM, through a range of training programs, beginning with the Emerging Scholars Leadership Advancement (EMERALD) Program.
The EMERALD Program, aims to support new lecturers with basic skills they will need in their day-to-day job as an academician in UM, as well as expose them to strategies and networks for nurturing their long-term career in UM. A new, more relevant structure for the EmeraLd program has been developed to fit the current teaching practice in higher education.
In 2022, the program has been revamped and suit more the current needs of new lecturers in UM.
HOW TO ENROLL THE EMERALD PROGRAM?
EMERALD has received more than 150 participants since 2014. Participants are selected among SLAB/SLAI graduates. Interested new lecturers may also join the program without being selected by Human Talent Management Division. If you did not received the letter by HTD and interested to join the program, you may email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
