About the author

These “reflections” comprise a record of diverse “extracurricular thoughts” the author had in teaching  for eighteen years, in Canada and in Malaysia.

Perhaps it is not inappropriate to share them with the wider public where the greater part of the teaching took place, Malaysia.

The writer was raised in Czechoslovakia, his birthplace. He migrated to Canada in 1968, and received his higher education there. He arrived in Malaysia in 1987, to joined the Canadian Matriculation Program at Taylor’s College (1987 to 1989 and 1990 to 1991).

After a two year phase in Canada, he returned to Malaysia in 1993. There he taught in the Canadian Matriculation program at Sunway College (1993 to 1998, and 1999 to 2002). He joined the Islamic Science University of Malaysia in 2002. There he stayed until 2008. Finally, in 2008 he joined IAIS Malaysia as a Research Fellow, where he remained until 2017.
