Centre for Teaching and Learning (CTL), UTMLead has been given a great responsibility to carry out initiatives under the New Academia Learning Innovation (NALI). NALI emphasizes the concept of entrepreneurship. By entreprenuership, we refer to the context of learning that is more productive, creative and innovative (Zaini, 2012).

In support of Dasar e-Pembelajaran Negara (DePAN), UTM through NALI runs courses that implement blended learning approach. The term blended learning is defines as the practice of using both online and face-to-face learning experiences when teaching students. 30 to 80 percent of the course content is delivered online. Face-to-face learning covers Case study, Problem Based Learning, Scenario Based Learning, Peer Instruction, Service Learning, Job Creation, CDIO and OBE. Digital learning involves the use or development of internet and video material such as Open Courseware, MOOC, BLOSSOMS, Video of Exemplary Professionals, Student to Student Edutainment, OBE Analysis System, and UTM e-Learning.

  • Learning Mode (Pedagogy/Andragogy) and
  • Learning Materials (Digital Resources).
