The Centre for Academic Development (PPA) was formed after the renaming of the Management Unit for Quality (UPK) way on July 12 1998 when the management felt that the functions of the Unit had to be developed to cover academic development which is the core business that determine the success of the University. As a result, the function had expanded to strategic planning, academic training, and e-learning.
In early 2008, PPA has been given more room to take control of academic development in UKM as the functions of quality management and strategic planning had been transferred to a newly established entity, the Centre for Corporate Planning and Communications. PPA then, had a broad aspects of academic matter under its belt, when it covers curriculum development and innovation.
Currently PPA consist of:
- Academic Development and Training
- Curriculum Development and Innovation
- Quality Management System on Teaching and Learning (for Undergraduate and Post Graduate programme)
