Let us extend our heartiest congratulations to Dr. Yuen Yee Yen, our lecturer from the Faculty of Business (FOB) for winning the Gold Medal at the esteemed International Teaching and Learning Invention Innovation Competition (iTaLIIC 2023), recently. Organised by the Center for Flexible Learning at Universiti Teknologi MARA, the event gathered participants from both local and international institutions, including students, academicians, and professionals to showcase innovative teaching and learning methods. 

Over 200 participants were eager to display their creativity and inventiveness in the realm of education this year. The competition was evaluated by distinguished juries with extensive backgrounds in innovation, commercialisation, and research. The event served as a catalyst for advancing educational practices by recognising and promoting groundbreaking ideas and approaches. 

Dr. Yuen, alongside his team members, Dr. Wendy Teoh Ming Yen from Universiti Teknikal Malaysia Melaka (UTeM) and Prof. Dr. Chong Siong Choy from Taylor’s University, earned the achievement for their exceptional demonstration of the Game-V mode. This innovative experiential and technology-enabled learning approach effectively enhances students’ creativity, critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and computational thinking skills – the renowned 5Cs in a university setting. 

Congratulations Dr. Yuen!
