Empowering TVET Instructors through Collaborative Work between MaGICX and CIAST
In conjunction with signing the memorandum of understanding (MoU) of Jabatan Pembangunan Kemahiran (JPK) and MaGICX, UTM on 1 June 2023, the Centre for Instructor and Advanced Skill Training (CIAST) and JPK seized a valuable opportunity to embark on a visit to the Media and Game Innovation Centre of Excellence (MaGICX). This remarkable visit was led by Ts Dr Mohamad B. Sulaiman, the Director General of JPK and Pn. Zuleah Darsong, the Director of CIAST.
The occasion unfolded with an enlightening sharing session hosted at the MaGICX office, led by Assoc. Prof. Dr. Mohd Yazid Bin Idris, the Director of MaGICX. This engaging discourse delved into the collective endeavours undertaken by both MaGICX and CIAST, focusing on the promising potential for future programs in collaboration with JPK to advance Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) instructors.
CIAST is also championing a suite of courses dedicated to enriching skills and fostering lifelong learning across domains like Automotive, Electronics, Welding, Computer Systems, Computer Networks, Mechatronics, and Manufacturing. It was a remarkable honour for MaGICX to forge a collaborative partnership with CIAST, an endeavour backed by the supportive Malaysian government. The collaboration scope that has been and is currently underway is professional courses for CIAST instructors and other TVET agencies in the field of Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality.
