PR: Centre for Teaching and Learning at the University of Management and Technology (UMT), in collaboration with George Mason University of USA, organized a conference themed “Innovation and Internationalisation in Pakistani Higher Education”.
Three years ago both institutions had started collaboration for Faculty Excellence in Teaching and Research (CFETR) to empower faculty through professional training. The purpose of the conference was to highlight research, innovative educational practice, and new knowledge generation in the modern context.
