kNOVASI 

 

The Congress and Innovation Competition in Teaching and Learning (kNovasi) is an annual event organized by the Center for Teaching and Curriculum Development, UKM since 2009. Since then, kNovasi has attracted many researchers and innovators from participants of higher learning institutions, schools and industries.

 

In kNovasi 2020, over 250 papers and innovations were accepted and many have been published in indexed journals and a book published by Penerbit UKM while several other papers are in the publishing process. Meanwhile, selected PdP products and innovations have been disseminated nationwide in four series of Majalah kNovasi.

Theme

"Evolution Towards Borderless Learning: A Way Forward"

During the pandemic, all of us are forced to do teaching and learning (TnL) online and remotely. Before the pandemic, students have to be in one place either schools or universities, away from home, to obtain knowledge and skills formally. Since pandemic most of the students are at home and the formal learning still continues except that it is being delivered without boundaries. There are no confine spaces and the learning can take place anytime, anywhere as well as it can happen synchronously or asynchronously. We believed that the pandemic is the stimulant that trigger a lot of changes in our everyday life including education. Thus its effect will stay with us longer than we imagine.

Therefore, the theme of the Congress and Innovation Competition of TnL (kNovasi) 2021 focuses on ‘Evolution Towards Borderless Learning: A Way Forward’. You can share your experience in this one-year time of how the teaching and learning took place from your side including any innovation in teaching and learning that you experimented, adopted, and practiced. We do hope this will be a platform so that all of us can benefit from one another to go through this abrupt changes together.

Objectives

The aims of kNovasi 2021 are to : 
 

  1. Share and disseminate researches and innovations in T&L

  2. Showcase products and innovations in T&L to be featured at the national level
