In general, the advocates and practitioners of conventional banking and finance not only able to properly differentiate between the differences exist between the conventional and Islamic banking but also flourishes the same to the masses through electronic and print media which turns into overwhelming misconceptions among the general public about Islamic banking and finance. To address this challenge faced by the contemporary Islamic banking industry, the importance of incorporating pedagogical methods in teaching have become more importance than incorporating the same in any other course. Through learning innovation techniques, we at IoBM, strive to develop such skill set amongst students so that they themselves become innovators to provide the new and improved solutions to meet the challenges faced by the Islamic banking and finance industry not only in Pakistan but also worldwide.
