All these initiatives indicate that, higher education in Pakistan has only recently received more ambitious emphasis than ever before and, over the years of reform, has also gained more certain directions and objectives targeted towards training and development of faculty members in different areas. As all development starts with human development, recent researches revealed that investment in faculty development (for example; pedagogical methods, technology-based teaching tools and basic research skills) improves the performance of student as well (see Trigwell et al. 1999; Kember 2000; Mann 2001). In this regard, HEC has also taken an important task of professional development on its agenda through the establishment of 'National Academy for Higher Education' (NAHE) and 'English Language Teaching Reforms' (ELTR). This is a major effort by HEC, under its 'Learning Innovation Division' that was established in 2003, to develop comprehensive teaching-learning material according to international standards in order to facilitate and professionally empower the local faculty.
