Title: Development of Global Leadership Competency Model for Malaysian Educational Leaders
Globalization has a traverse impact across the globe and not only has it affected the economy, politics and policy but education field as well. Leadership in the educational field should run in tandem with globalization and therefore uplifting its competency and skills from domestic setting into the global leadership competency setting. The spawning of global leadership competency from the business conglomerate world catering for CEOs is uncountable since early 1990s till date but there is scarcity of global leadership competency for public organizations such as local universities, Ministry of Education and etc. Public organizations are in need of leaders with the global leadership competency, skills and abilities in order to be in congruence with globalization issues as the education evolves with the impetus of global issues. The complexity of administering the education system as a whole require leaders to possess global leadership competency consisting of knowledge, skills, capabilities, mind and attitudes. It is crucial for Malaysia to produce educational leaders that juxtapose itself with the evolvement of rapid globalization changes. This presentation will delve into global leadership competency model for educational leaders in Malaysia.

Title: The “human” in post-COVID-19 education: Designing curricula with learning interactions at the centre
In a historically brief period, university teachers supporting learning in campus-based curricula have rapidly responded to the restrictions of on-campus modes resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. Over the past months, many have moved from an ‘emergency remote teaching’ model towards developing online and blended courses. Their creativity and commitment to student learning have been central to these rapid re-designs. Faculty presence is central to engaging and motivating university students in the move to online models. In this talk, I will draw on my experience with designing and researching inquiry-based courses and programmes in professional programmes (Health Professions and Teacher Education). The results of these interactional studies may inform avenues for Humanities and Social Sciences online curriculum designs that can enhance human connection with and between our students to support their achievement of course and programme learning outcomes.

Title: Comparative study on pricing models of urban public bicycle systems
Facing the pressure of urban traffic congestion, More and more cities have built public bicycle systems.From the perspective of public pricing, the pricing model of China's public bicycle system can be divided into a free public pond resource model, a low-charge quasi-public goods model and a high-charge private goods model.This study selects Wuhan, Hangzhou, and Beijing as typical case representatives to analyze their public bicycle pricing models.The study found that neither the non-charging public pond resource model nor the high-charging private goods model are not suitable for the operation of China's public bicycle system.In view of this, in order to promote the effective operation of the urban public bicycle system, the government should actively participate in and provide appropriate financial subsidies and policy support.Public pricing can never deviate from the purpose of publicity.
