Description

At the Sustainability Pavilion of Expo 2020 Dubai, I joined in a conversation with the DG of Higher Education Malaysia, Dato’ Prof. Dr. Husaini Omar, with two other panellists, Dato’ Prof. Ts. Dr. Mohd Ekhwan Hj. Toriman, VC of UKM and AP Ir. Dr. Rosdiazli Ibrahim, Dean, Centre for Graduate Studies, UTP on Future Digital Education.
The session took place on the 13th of December 2021 in hybrid mode 10:00a.m live from Dubai and 2:00p.m via MoHE’s Facebook page live stream.
The seminar was focused on the transformation of higher education in the post COVID-19 pandemic era with digitalisation as an enabler of education in the future. The panellists deliberated on the changes required in the university ecosystem and mind-set of educators and students in order to overcome the challenges of post pandemic environment. To add to this, the forum panellists agreed on a number of issues such as the migration from traditional systems to the digitalisation in all aspects of university processes as being the current practice. They also claimed that flexibility of curriculum and teaching and learning delivery should be a part of the solution in the new norm. Other pertinent issues discussed included preparedness of university community, ways of maintaining quality as well as obtaining positive outcome of digital education.
I believe that apart from the issues mentioned above, UiTM has managed to digitalise 2,500 of our courses and delivered digital T&L to 180 thousand students in the past 4 semesters, meaning student pathway in UiTM is almost fully digitalised. We have managed to mitigate issues of mental health by establishing Virtual Buddies and tele-counselling and dealing with poor internet access by bringing those affected back on campus. If UiTM wants to prepare our graduates for the future, personalised education is the way forward and for this, we have our home grown LMS (Learning Management System) i.e. UFUTURE that also facilitates micro-credential qualifications for upskilling and reskilling of our staff and students. Preparation of students for the future also requires students to move from dependency to independency and I am proud to claim that UiTM is the first university to handle PhD viva voce online.
My message to the international audience, UiTM will provide the best digital experience when you enrol and be part of #KeluargaUiTM.
Di Pavilion Lestari – Expo 2020 Dubai, saya menyertai diskusi Pendidikan Digital Masa Hadapan dengan KP Pengajian Tinggi Malaysia, Dato’ Prof. Dr. Husaini Omar, bersama dua lagi ahli panel, Dato’ Prof. Ts. Dr Mohd Ekhwan Hj. Toriman, NC UKM dan PM Ir. Dr Rosdiazli Ibrahim, Dekan, Pusat Pengajian Siswazah, UTP.
Sesi itu berlangsung pada 13 Disember 2021 dalam mod hibrid 10:00 pagi secara langsung dari Dubai dan 2:00 petang di halaman Facebook KPT secara strim langsung.
Seminar itu tertumpu kepada transformasi pendidikan tinggi dalam era pasca pandemik COVID-19 dengan pendigitalan sebagai pemacu pendidikan masa hadapan. Ahli panel membincangkan perubahan yang diperlukan dalam ekosistem universiti dan set minda pendidik dan pelajar untuk mengatasi cabaran persekitaran pasca pandemik. Sementalahan itu, ahli panel forum bersetuju mengenai beberapa isu seperti perpindahan daripada sistem konvensional kepada sistem pendigitalan dalam semua aspek proses universiti sebagai amalan semasa. Mereka juga menyatakan bahawa fleksibiliti dan kurikulum yang “personalise” serta penyampaian pengajaran dan pembelajaran harus menjadi sebahagian daripada penyelesaian dalam norma baharu. Isu penting lain yang dibincangkan termasuk kesediaan komuniti universiti, cara mengekalkan kualiti serta memperoleh hasil pendidikan digital yang positif dan terbaik.
Ingin saya nyatakan selain daripada input diskusi yang dinyatakan di atas, UiTM telah berjaya mendigitalkan 2,500 kursus dan menyampaikan P&P digital kepada 180 ribu pelajar dalam tempoh 4 semester yang lalu, bermakna laluan pelajar di UiTM hampir didigitalkan sepenuhnya. Kami telah berjaya mengurangkan isu kesihatan mental dengan menubuhkan Virtual Buddies dan tele-kaunseling serta menangani akses internet yang lemah dengan membawa mereka yang terjejas kembali ke kampus.
Untuk mempersiap siaga graduan masa hadapan, pendidikan yang “personalise” adalah solusinya. UiTM mempunyai LMS (Learning Management System) yang dibangunkan sendiri iaitu UFUTURE.
UFUTURE juga menyediakan program upskilling dan reskilling micro-credentials yang bertujuan meningkatkan kemahiran baharu kepada kakitangan dan pelajar UiTM. Persediaan ke arah model pelajar untuk masa hadapan juga memerlukan pelajar beralih daripada sikap bergantung pada sesuatu kepada sikap yang berdikari. Saya berbangga untuk menyatakan bahawa UiTM adalah universiti pertama mengendalikan PhD viva voce secara dalam talian.
Pesanan saya kepada audien antarabangsa pada hari ini, UiTM akan memberikan pengalaman digital terbaik apabila anda mendaftar dan menjadi sebahagian daripada #KeluargaUiTM
