    Abstract

    University lecturers in many parts of the world are beginning to take seriously on their roles as teachers. In Malaysia we are aiming for scholarship in teaching and various agencies have been set by the stakeholders to facilitate the improvement on the quality of teaching and learning. The Higher Education Leadership Academy under the Ministry of Higher Education together with the Centre for Teaching and Learning at each university are in charge of training of lecturers. The Malaysian Quality Agency has drawn up the so-called Malaysian Quality Framework for Universities to gain accreditation of Higher education programmes (and for recognition by the government), as well as for regular auditing guidelines purposes. In addressing the need for higher institutions to plan on scholarships in teaching, the National University of Malaysia has decided a programme to encourage academic staffs to embark on Action Research in order to improve the learning and teaching at the university. This paper described how successful the university motivates lecturers in different disciplines to embark on action research.
