ABOUT GLOBAL ACADEMY OF TRAINING AND RESEARCH (GATR):

Global Academy of Training and Research (GATR), is a registered research firm in Malaysia that provides platforms for academics and organizations to excel. GATR aims at encouraging young scholars, established researchers, trainers, academic & corporate researchers to conduct meaningful research and provide useful knowledge for the academic and socio-economic development of their respective nations. GATR is organizing the academic discussion session in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

PURPOSE:

The academic discussion session provides an opportunity for participants to relax by listening to, or participating in, a pleasant exchange of ideas about a topic that is directly of your interest. It provides an opportunity to break the otherwise slightly boring schedule of speeches which will be delivered during the conference. The topic: "Are academics still valued in the societies we come from" is an opportunity to discuss the place of academic discourse in a number of countries, or in society in general.

At an academic discussion session, each panel member will have 5 minutes to put forward his or her views followed by questions/comments from the floor.
