Academic Innovation Centre

Dream. Create. Inspire

At MSA, we understand that responding to the ever-changing higher education landscape is critical both to our success and to that of our students. The Academic Innovation Centre (AIC) allows us to identify and take advantage of opportunities in this dynamic environment.

The AIC aims to create effective and efficient learning environments that enhance our students’ learning experience. It will become a focal point for conceptualising, promoting, studying and disseminating ground-breaking academic transformation at MSA and beyond. It will bring together both students and academic and administrative staff members to help students reach their potential and foster a hub of knowledge creation and sharing.

The AIC provides a comprehensive, strategic approach to supporting innovations in teaching and learning, including the development of blended, hybrid and online learning environments. In addition, it facilitates the exploration and implementation of ideas for creative and innovative educational programming, and sound academic technologies.
