- Available for pre-order. Item will ship after February 28, 2022
Methods and techniques adopted in teaching, training, learning, research, professional development or capacity building are generally standardized, across most traditional disciplines, particularly within developing countries. This is not the case, however, when it comes to the Islamic discipline, and in particular in relation to the study of Islamic economics and finance, which is influenced by conventional standards and techniques. This is primarily due to the lack of availability of the requisite standards and mechanisms designed within the spirit of Maqsid al-Shari’ah.
This book offers a unique resource and a comprehensive overview of the contemporary methods and smart techniques available for teaching, learning and researching Islamic eco-finance and it presents solutions to the challenges in implementing them. Further, the book gives deep insight into the most appropriate methodologies that could be employed to empirically explore, model, analyze and evaluate Islamic finance theories and models respectively. It also gives recommendations for improving learning, teaching and research outcomes in Islamic Eco-finance. The book also addresses how, in this advanced technological era, smart tools like Artificial Intelligence, Machine learning, Big Data, Zoom, the Internet of Things etc. can be adapted to help equip students, researchers and scholars with smart skills.
The book will enable those studying Islamic economics and finance to grasp the appropriate tools for research and learning. Additionally, the Islamic economics and finance sector is growing at a significant rate and therefore requires the upskilling and capacity building of its human resources; thus, the book will also be highly beneficial for practitioners involved in the industry.
