Since 2018, the Centre for Academic Development (CADe) UPM has organised the Putra InnoCreative Carnival in Teaching and Learning (PicTL), an international competition on teaching and learning. The programme aims to foster an innovative and creative culture of teaching and learning among educators and students.
This year’s i-PicTL theme is “Innovation Beyond Limits,” with the goal of promoting the growth and advancement of quality teaching and learning innovations. i-PicTL2022 aims to celebrate and showcase exciting achievements in teaching and learning innovations among educators, researchers, policymakers, students, and the general public. A variety of programs are planned to enrich our participants’ experiences, including keynote speeches, web talks, workshops, awards, and a poster competition.
After a year of experimenting with the best teaching practices, I am challenging myself to participate in i-PicTL2022. The innovation is called POMI (click to view the presentation). I am inspired by the POMODORO task management technique and motivated by my student testimonials. Alhamdulillah, I received a silver medal for my innovation. I’m overjoyed and grateful, and I’m aiming for a gold medal for my next teaching and learning innovation.
