This week I would like to write about the experience doing a book talk to Ministry of International Trade and Industry officers.
For the second time around, I have been invited by the ministry to talk about the books I have written: LTME1 and LTME2. In my last visit, I had only published the the first book and the second book was still in a draft version. So, I had to assess critically what to repeat and what new exciting experiences to share with the audience. I wanted to try to be new and fresh in my presentation instead of dull and boring.
I used the story of Aladdin as part of my presentation, at the beginning, to get people talking and excited. However, the session that I had with them was not mainly about Aladdin but about LTME. As exciting as the Aladdin journey, LTME brings the excitement and joy of education round the world.
I ended my presentation by showing a picture of Aladdin with Jasmine and a big castle. What a nice ending for him. However, LTME is still a jorney even you have read the last page. It can be carried out by me or by anyone out there. The journey that I took sometimes may not be as glamorous as Aladdin's life. I may not be as rich as a prince and not as popular but definitely LTME journey brings me a lot of satisfaction. The thirst and hunger for a new adventure in the education world will always be there!
Thank you MITI for inviting me for the second time around. Loved it!
PS: Let's walk with me to the university! (only if you know what I mean)
