About


The explosion of information and communication technology has changed the landscape of global education to a new level where teachers act as facilitators on the students to produce knowledge together (co-Curators of knowledge). The concept of teaching and learning that requires students to be mere recipients of knowledge can no longer be used. Educators need to design more effective teaching patterns and provide learning activities that encourage students to think critically, stimulates innovativeness and activate interest and help generate new brilliant ideas.

Minister of Higher Education of Malaysia through the 2017 New Year mandate on January 12, 2017 has emphasized the need to redesign the country's higher education to be more active, interactive, immersive, challenging nature and role game.

In confronting the challenges of today and the demands of 21st century education, the need to redesign the country's higher education is very demanding in order to remain relevant, consulted and respected by local and international academic community, industry and society.
