Due to the Covid-19 lockdown, educational disruption has become a global concern, necessitating a concentration of regulators and new researchers to resolve. Thus, the current study examines the role of instructors' inventiveness and commitment to resolving educational disruptions in Malaysian institutions. Additionally, this paper explores the mediating function of educational system improvement in the relationship between teacher innovativeness, teacher commitment, and educational disruption in Malaysian universities. The current study collected primary data from chosen respondents via survey questionnaires. Additionally, the PLS-SEM was utilised to investigate the relationship between the variables in this study. The findings indicated that teachers' inventiveness and devotion to education positively resolve educational disruptions in Malaysian universities. Additionally, the data revealed that upgrading the educational system greatly mediates the relationship between teachers' innovativeness, teachers' dedication, and eradicating educational disturbance in Malaysian institutions. The current study serves as a guide for future scholars who wish to investigate this topic further and serves as a resource for policymakers who wish to design legislation to eradicate educational interruption.
