The post-millennial students or Gen Z have been growing up in a different environment that we grew up in. They are often characterized as digitally savvy, well connected in the social media and have a shorter attention span. Put them in the traditional classroom setting and they will get restless and bored easily.
Realized by the issue, the university’s policy on learning spaces have been instituted in 2012. Since then, several classroom developments have taken into account the potential of collaborative and innovative learning environment that could be practice through these newly designed spaces. UM is making a serious effort in providing teaching and learning space conducive for student-centred learning / high impact teaching and learning practices of takes place. The Management committee has agreed that all faculties / centres/ academy must comply to learning space (student-centred) criteria for any renovation work.
The management commitment on this matter was further reinforced with the renovation of classroom into ‘TheCUBE’ project in 2012 in several faculties (effort by DVC-Dev). UM Learning Space policy is finally instituted in 2012.
