This session has been curated by the Malaysian Ministry of Higher Education, Going Global co-hosts.

As the fourth industrial revolution (4.0IR) gathers pace, bringing technological changes and societal evolution, what are the challenges and opportunities for higher education learning and teaching? How can we design learning and teaching systems and approaches to produce graduates who are future-proof and able to fit into unpredictable and uncertain environments?

This session is led by the Malaysian Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE) who, in collaboration with Malaysian universities, is spearheading the redesign of higher education to meet 4.0IR. Speakers will share their knowledge, experiences and aspirations for an up-to-date higher education system design that can meet the requirements of the 4.0IR environment.

Key questions include:

  • What are the broader technological changes and their impact on teaching and learning in a higher education system?
  • What are the key elements of teaching & learning towards meeting the attributes of future-proof graduates?
  • How can we redesign learning and teaching to meet the challenges of 4.0IR?
