It is also not just about designing different teaching methods. But rather we need to provide creative and innovative learning experiences for our students. Change is happening so fast that we need to teach students how to think and how to learn. Students should also be taught how to be creative and innovative individuals.

In meeting the challenge of preparing students for the future roles in the society, UTM is faced with the task of rethinking curriculum, delivery medium and assessment methods. The design and development of effective educational materials should therefore be undertaken by lecturers who are familiar with their students and classroom environment. One useful approach to deliver the content is the use of case-based examples. This approach should be incorporated in the teaching and learning activities and take into account cases in local settings. The next generation learners are highly accustomed to new and evolving technologies. Therefore, lecturers also need to equip themselves with new and state-of-the-art technologies for teaching and learning.
