The 2018 Reimagine Education Awards shortlist has now been announced. All shortlisted applicants have been emailed informing them of their success, and further instructions have been provided. We regret that the unprecedented size of this year’s applications cohort has left us able to email only shortlisted applicants and leading runners-up. Applicants who have not received an email are welcome to request further information from our team by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, but should assume that they have not been shortlisted.
This year’s competition was our most keenly-contested yet, with over 1,000 applications. The quality, too, was higher, and we were sadly obliged to reject a number of excellent submissions.
All shortlisted applicants are now able to book their showcase by visiting http://bit.ly/RE17ShowcaseBooking and filling in the form provided. We request that all applicants wishing to showcase their work do so by Friday 8th November.
Applicants seeking feedback can email email@example.com with their request. All feedback will be provided by January 15th 2018.
Our leading applications, including entries from MIT, Cornell, Imperial College London, Johns Hopkins University, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, have submitted successful applications to showcase at this year’s Reimagine Education Conference.
Their work will feature alongside the work of highly innovative ed tech startups and transformative nonprofit organizations, ensuring that the conference will again offer delegates an unparalleled opportunity to learn about teaching innovation across the world of education.
The agenda is available at http://www.reimagine-education.com/agenda-2/.
To join Amazon, Google, IBM, and a number of the world’s top teaching institutions in Philadelphia, secure your place today at www.reimagine-education.com/book-now.
