Abstract

Malaysia established a visionary policy entitled Vision 2020 to transform the country into a developed nation by 2020. To achieve this aspiration, the nation had embarked on a myriad of initiatives, one of which is reforming education through ICT. Some of the actions taken by the government were to intensify the development of ICT infrastructure; expand access to and equity for ICT facilities; expand ICT-based curriculum; emphasise ICT integration in teaching and learning processes; improve on ICT knowledge and skills among students; and increase R&D efforts in ICT. Right in the middle of all these plans are the teachers who have to play a pivotal role in trying to achieve these monumental tasks. For teachers already in the service, the Ministry of Education (MOE) has planned numerous types of professional development, and this paper highlights some of the professional development activities carried out and the challenges faced by MOE.
