If you’re at the heart of educational change – if your day-to-day work involves improving teaching and learning outcomes for students across the world – if you can empower teachers to transform their practices, or administrators to enhance their institution – then here’s your opportunity to tell the world.
The fourth Wharton-QS Reimagine Education Competition is now open, once again seeking to acknowledge and reward those who can prove their impact on the way that the world does education.
This edition of your Reimagine Education Newsletter contains a brief guide to all you need to know about this year’s application process, including the enhancements we’re introducing to our global awards competition. We’ll also provide a full list of 2017’s award categories, including our new addition.
We’re also delighted to announce a new media partnership – read on to discover who’s joined us in our drive to foster entrepreneurship and identify learning innovation.
Our new partner has provided one of her latest, and most well-received, pieces for this edition of the newsletter: what can educators do to support the introverted entrepreneur?
Classroom innovation is at the heart of Grace O’Shea’s work: the founder of classroom design consultancy room2learn and panellist at the 2016 Reimagine Education Conference articulates why revolutionizing classroom spaces should be at the heart of the attempt to reimagine education.
Moving from the learning space to the student face: the penultimate article is written by Ross Jones of Emotuit. They unite educational technology, data science, and social & emotional learning theory to create a platform that uses face recognition technology to analyse student emotional states as they take online courses. In doing so, they allow educators to better plan appropriate interventions.
Emotuit’s work, in many ways, exemplifies what we seek as we open the 2017 Reimagine Education Awards: the marriage of robust educational theory and cutting-edge technology to ameliorate the student experience.
Finally, our Reimaginer Success Story is that of Doug Messer and his brainchild, University Beyond. Here the theme is that of nurturing employability: University Beyond is ensuring that motivated, talented students are able to improve their opportunities in the ever-more-competitive employment market by uniting them with world-renowned brands. Messer’s work has proved transformative for so many students, and is a perfect example of the type of initiative we seek in this year’s Nurturing Employability Award category. In this edition, find out how Reimagine Education acted as Launchpad for his nascent initiative.
We hope that Messer’s work – and that of all of our Reimaginers featured here – inspires you to join this year’s “Oscars of Education”. To tell us how you’re driving the future of teaching and learning, apply at www.reimagine-education.com.
