Does knowledge of the past and present determine the future?

SEGi College Sarawak host a sharing session on Early Childhood Education. Professor Dr. Nicholas Gani, Anthropology and Sociology Programme Coordinator, Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, Universiti Malaysia Sarawak, was the guest speaker for the event.

Future teachers and educators studying Early Childhood Education had the pleasure of having Dr. Nicholas Gani share a session about his expertise in how his research contributions to the subject of social studies, Sarawak history in terms of the early age of archaeology and artefacts.

Dr. Gani mentioned how important the discoveries are for the knowledge of the future generations. The benefits of learning Archeology for young people are diverse because Archeology holds an important role as a source of prehistoric knowledge. In addition to providing information about life in the past, Archeology also describes the history of human civilisation.

Dr. Gani obtained  Ph.D in Archaeology at the University of Oxford, where his research is focused on contemporary people’s engagements with the megalithic monuments in the Upper Baram of Sarawak and involved in archaeological research for more than a decade.

Participants and students enjoyed the session and dispersed with a sincere hope that such mega events should be organised from time to time. It also allows students to discover their talents.

At SEGi College Sarawak, we believe students learn more from being put in a four-cornered wall; or even in a “box of a curriculum”. Early Childhood Education programme students are taught in skills and well diverse knowledge; learning from different experts in multifaceted societies.
