CESS colloquium which was held on the 5 of August was a success. Ten participants participated with 5 participants from the Master of Early Childhood program and 5 participants from Master in Islamic Studies. The participants had good feedback from the lecturers and were more equipped to finish their study. Even the observers felt they managed to learn a lot from the session. Our student’s main problem in research seems to find a problem. The mistake was to focus on their interest and experience and not accompany it with lots of reading. Only when a lot of reading is done can gaps be seen in a particular area of study or problems identified for further research. Hopefully, in the future, we will have more participants.
