Despite many efforts to promote transferable skills development, it remains a challenge for Higher Education Institutions (HEIs). To improve education practices and meet the challenges of ever-changing environment, it is vital to introduce a paradigm shift in education. In light of this, it is significant to identify and implement the teaching strategies that facilitate the transferable skills development. There has long been a controversy over traditional pedagogical style of lecture delivery as opposed to an active learning environment in which learners are engaged in the learning process itself.The paper sheds lights on various ways of integrating transferable skills in the classrooms. It examines diverse methods, teaching/learning strategies and educational tools that aim at promoting a learner-centered learning environment, in order to ensure the development of transferable skills, such as critical thinking, teamwork, communication, collaboration, creativity, research skills, etc. Creating such learning environment stimulates students’ interests, engagement and motivation. Consequently, it overviews a practical application of some activities and strategies that can activate the skills as well as it reveals the results of findings that showed a positive impact of integrating these approaches to enhance transferable skills. This research is significant by identifying the indicators of an active learning environment, which encourage educators to reimagine their classrooms and implement innovative teaching practices.
