Centre for Teaching and Learning (CTL)
The knowledge-based economy (K-Economy) is becoming a predominant feature of the world’s economy including Malaysia. Hence, the knowledge workers will become an integral and a necessary requirement for the growth and expansion of the economy. It has been predicted that at least 40 percent of the Malaysian workforce will eventually be knowledge workers. Knowledge and skills that are acquired during the formal school years become obsolete rapidly and workers need to be retooled ever so often in order to be relevant. Globalization and the K-Economy have made life long learning a necessity.
Established in April 2005, the Centre for Teaching and Learning (CTL) will play a vital role in assisting the nation in offering services that will be essential for producing well-trained and up-to-date knowledge workers in the areas of training, education and human resource development at any point of their life. The CTL will provide an opportunity of life long learning for any individuals who seek to improve their knowledge, skills and personality. The setting up of the CTL will also be in response to the sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad S.A.W, who called for his Ummah “to seek learning from the cradle to the grave”.
Centre for Teaching and Learning (CTL), IIUM aims to provide the excellent academic programs, research and consultancies, training and broadcasting production in the region and the Muslim world. This plan seeks to generate a significant increase in centre profit and quality of higher education towards all level groups of society in Malaysia.
