Members of the Mobile Media Lab, Director Kim Sawchuk, Owen Chapman, Leslie Shade and Rae Staseson, were guest researchers at the Multimedia University, Faculty of Creative Multimedia, in Cyberjaya, Malaysia.
Dr. Kim Sawchuk had previously been a guest scholar in November 2009 and helped to develop, along with Dean Harold Thwaites of the Faculty of Creative Multimedia, a memorandum of cooperation for research exchanges between MMU and Concordia. In February Sawchuk, Chapman, Shade and Staseson were part of the official signing ceremony of the memorandum of cooperation with MMU President Dr. Zaharin bin Yusoff.
The busy week of activities and exchanges consisted of various meetings with undergraduate and graduate students, faculty and staff; public presentations/exhibitions, performances and screenings; and meetings off campus with media artists from Kuala Lampur. This successful research trip is the beginning of numerous future projects and exchanges between Concordia and MMU.
The exchange was funded by a Faculty Mobility Program grant from the Vice-President, Research & Graduate Studies.
