As the private sector of higher education has grown in Malaysia, it is often observed that new and inexperienced teacing staff enter into the academic world without adequate pedagogical training, while some educators learn from trial and error with students, content delivery and classroom management. To help new teaching staff build confidence in handling lectures, including large-size lectures, an efficient training technique is required. This article aimed at obtaining qualitative feedback from relevant stakeholders through in-depth interviews and classroom observations, thereby gaining insights into issues related to conceptualization and the delivery of teaching theories from curriculum to context. The findings provided customized professional development training information for human resources and can be used to develop a series of teaching videos to provide new and inexperienced teaching staff with effective large-scale teaching guidance. The study aims to find how non-pedagogically trained lecturers can respond to the complexities in teaching and learning. This study emphasises the advantages of using case study videos as a pedagogy technique for new teaching staff.
