Expert Profile


Adlina Ariffin received her Bachelor and Master degrees in Teaching English as a Second Language (TESL) from University of Malaya in 1998 and 2003 respectively. She then pursued her doctoral studies at the International Islamic University Malaysia and graduated in 2013. The title of her thesis was The Reading of Legal Cases: Towards a Model of Effective Reading by Law Undergraduates.
Her research interest blossomed when she first embarked on her Masters degree in 2000 where she investigated the benefits of student collaboration on vocabulary development among ESL learners. From then on, she continued to be involved in various research undertakings at the Kulliyyah/Centre level, University level and national level. In 2013, she completed her research entitled Exploring the Common Practices of Law students in the Reading of Legal Cases: a case study of an EAP course at the Ahmad Ibrahim Kulliyyah of Laws which received the Endowment (B) Grant by the University and in 2016 she completed a collaborative research project entitled A Study on Benefits of Awarding Scholarship to Postgraduate International Students which was funded by the FRGS (Top-down) grant and a University level research under the Research Initiative Grant Scheme (RIGS) entitled Investigating Strategies Used by ESL Language Learners in Acquiring English Language at the Tertiary Level.
She has published in journals, conference proceedings and book chapters. Among her published works are Revisiting the Malaise of the Ummah: A Way Forward (2017), Mother Tongue & English Language: A Power Struggle (2015), A Study on the Reading Strategies Employed by Undergraduates and Practicing Lawyers in Case Reading (2015), The Challenges in the Reading of Legal Cases: Lecturers' Perspective (2014), The Reading of Legal Cases by Law Undergraduates: Some Problems and Suggestions (2014), Ideal vs Reality: Evidences from Senior Teachers' Experiences on the Malaysian School-Based Assessment System (SBA) (2014), A Comparative Analysis of Ibn Sina and Al- Ghazali: Their Philosophical Underpinnings and Contributions toward Muslim Education (2011). In 2018 she published a book entitled Reading Strategies of a Specialised Rhetorical Genre: The Case of Law. 

Throughout her 19 years at the IIUM, she has held various administrative positions. She was the Course Coordinator for a few academic courses and Coordinator at the Centre for Languages and Pre-University Development (CELPAD) prior to joining DELL in 2016. She has been actively involved in research initiatives in developing new courses and evaluating present courses. From 2013 to 2016, she was the Deputy Dean (Research & Academic Quality) at the Centre for Postgraduate Studies, IIUM. At the same time, she also held the post of Deputy Chairman for the eMDPS Committee responsible for the administration of the Database of Foreign Universities under the purview of the Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE) and Malaysian Deans of Graduate Studies Council. During her tenure she was involved in a research collaboration project - Kajian Pembangunan Pelan Halatuju Pengajian Siswazah Malaysia 2016-2025 which aims to produce an education blueprint for postgraduate studies in Malaysia. 

Currently, she is the Deputy Director (Grant Management Unit) at the Research Management Centre, IIUM. She has had a very colourful teaching experience, ranging from pre-sessional courses to English for Academic Purposes Course to English for Occupational Purposes Courses. In 2006, she was awarded the Best Teacher Award (Kulliyyah level) by the University. Presently, she is teaching courses related to English language and linguistics at the Department of English Language and Literature, KIRKHS. Her research interests are applied linguistics, pragmatics, sociolinguistics and English for Specific Purposes.
