Members of the PhD cohort are part of the School's staff, and we get invited to School functions and meetings. Today is the presentation of one of the candidates for the post of Head of School. The post will be vacated soon, and two staff members from within the School are shortlisted.The candidates will do a presentation of what they will do, their aspirations and the strategic path they will take for the School.The candidate today is a Lady, with International and industry background. The Head of Faculty introduced the candidate to members of the Faculty and School.Panels of interviewers present were also introduced. The ambience is informal and relax, with couch seats kinda setting.

These informal sessions are part of my metacognitive learning processes, beyond the learning curve in preparing for my proposal. I wonder how the processes of selection is done in our universities in Malaysia?
