Experiential Learning and Competency-Based Education Landscape (EXCEL) Workshop

The afternoon workshop was led by Prof. Madya Dr. Wan Zuhainis Binti Saad, Universiti Putra Malaysia and Dr Maria Garraffa, University of East Anglia.

Experiential Learning and Competency-Based Education Landscape (EXCEL) is a framework developed by the Academic Excellence Division, Ministry of Higher Education (MoHE) Malaysia aimed at transforming academic programs to produce lifelong learners, innovative adept entrepreneurs, creative practitioners and change-makers. 

EXCEL aims to address the imminent issues of graduates’ skill mismatch and skill gaps.  It is focused on providing learning experiences that are nested in the community and immersions in the industry.  Through the implementation of this framework, students of higher education institutions will be given the opportunity to indulge in meaningful research and pave their own learning pathways.

This half day workshop is designed for educators, trainers, and anyone interested in exploring and implementing innovative teaching and learning approaches that focus on creating the transferable skills and competencies that are essential to success in higher education.
