DISCOURSE SESSIONS WITH DR JOHN HARRISON

Sometimes when I discuss with him, I feel so ambrassing looking a his face and express my ideas. May be our age different, he 28 and me 42 . At the age of 25 he received Phd Degree from Aberystwyth University. He joined Loughborough University in 2006 as a Lecturer in Human Geography within the Globalisation and World Cities Research Group (GaWC) at Loughborough University. He has widen knowledge about research methodology and urban development planning in theoretical way. He had published a few journal articles in European Planning Studies, International Journal of Urban and Regional Research, Geography Compass ,Journal of Economic Geography , Geoforum and Space & Polity.

When I think back and take positive way put the issue of age and experience aside , if we collaborate the idea and knowledge, its will enhance my Phd research. The discourses sessions start from 2 until 4 pm every week. Its so interesting and we discussed about the concept of regionalism and governance. During the session he never shown that he knows everything, his down to earth attitude and respectful other people ideas really make me honour working with him. Thank You Dr John Harrison

Assalamualaikum En Azmi!

Dr Hamzah shared your blog with me to visit. I enjoyed reading what you have been up to and am impressed with the new learning that you are experiencing. Looks like you are doing a good job there as well.

Keep up the good work and I am also glad that you family visited you. Are they still there? Sorry I was not able to meet up with you on my trip to UK. But hope to see you when you get back.

Take care

Thank You...Dr Hazita visiting my blog..

Yes...the 3 months attachment really benefit for my research. Saya telah memanafaatkan sepenuhnya. Even lots of pressures they put on me...but I take positive way. 3 weeks to go...3 more assignments to submit, 4 books and journals to review and 2 research presentations need to do before Xmas...Rasa lebih sibuk di sini berbanding masa di UKM. May be without Dr Hazita, Dr Hamzah, FSSK, UKM and JPA support and encouragement, I am unable be here to feel the experience and learn something new.

My family almost 1 1/2 month here...pity them only saturday and sunday I can bring them to visit a few places in East Midland area such as Nottingham, Leicester, Derby and Birmingham. Lagi pun malam cepat musim sejuk ini...3.30pm dah gelap. May be after the programme is over on 24/12/2009... we will visit a few places in Wales or London area.

OK.. see you later..Thank you
