UNGS 1201 - HyFlex (Hybrid Flexible) Transformative Learning for Edu-Action with Soul

Universities' formal curriculum are becoming too focused on knowledge and skill that they have neglected the aspect of shaping attitude and inculcating values - KS vs. AV. To bring back the action and soul of education, IIUM has introduced a new course compulsory to all new student: UNGS 1201 - Sustainable Development: Issues, Policy and Practices.

It is an amalgamation of various pedagogical models, as it is a specialized learning science that includes delivery of content, behavioural analytics, learning psychology and assessments and delivered through a hybrid model with flexibility to fit the learners.

The course is conducted based on 5 fundamental criteria for next generation learning and skills education framework namely, transdisciplinary, and integrated, formative, and summative assessment (without final examination), research-based, community-engaged, and action and solution oriented.
