As Reimagine Education has grown, we have received an increasing number of outstanding applications from innovators who, driven by a keen sense of social responsibility, are seeking to improve access to higher education for under-served, underprivileged students. Acknowledging the need for education’s scope to expand yet still further, we are now offering our inaugural Access, Diversity & Inclusion award, which will be given to a pedagogy or new educational model that is designed to bring quality education to new cohorts.
This prize will be awarded to the company/institution that best leverages artificial intelligence, machine learning, and/or cognitive computing to improve learning outcomes, teaching delivery, and/or graduate employability.
In this new category we seek projects that have successfully implemented the use of generative AI to create or improve educational tools, platforms, or systems. These innovative solutions should positively enhance and transform various aspects of education, fostering creativity, personalization, and engagement among learners.
Reimagine Education is keen to emphasise that reimagining education involves more than devising ingenious technological solutions to problems. Presence learning is also in need of reimagining, reliant as it is on centuries-old teaching methods. How can you and your team reimagine presence-based pedagogies, and improve learning outcomes in traditional learning environments?
This prize will be awarded to the company or institution that creates the best breakthrough technology in education, where this innovation is having a proven impact on the educational experience of teachers, students, or both; or enhances the supportive framework upon which outstanding teaching and/or learning is constructed.
This prize will be awarded to the project or initiative that is effectively developing skills and competencies required for the present and future of work. For example, artificial intelligence, blockchain technology, cloud computing, machine learning, data science, data security but also cognitive flexibility, emotional and social intelligence, creative and innovative mindset.
This prize will be given to the best electronic learning project.
We seek any innovative new technological tool, or any project that uses existing electronic learning tools in an innovative way.
Such projects should facilitate and support learning through the use of information and communications technology.
This prize will be awarded to the company or institution that demonstrates the best example of immersive experiential learning where students benefit from being immersed in a digital world and are given opportunities to practice critical lessons.
This prize will be awarded to institutions reimagining Business Education with outstanding pedagogical innovation.
The Learning Assessment Award will be given to the project that aims to explore and improve the deﬁciencies in the way we currently assess how much our students have learned, and how deeply they have understood what they have learned. How can you and your team create a project that reimagines the way we assess a student’s grasp of course content/key skills?
This prize will be awarded to the project or initiative that demostrates impact and effectiveness in providing opportunities for personal and professional development, including upskilling and re-skilling, beyond formal education.
The Reimagine Education Nurturing Employability Award will be awarded to the project that can clearly demonstrate a link between their project’s approach and improved employability outcomes. What traits and/or skills do you ﬁnd employers to be lacking in their hires, and how does your project help its users to enhance these traits and/or skills? Can your project help employers to better identify the traits and/or skills they desire in their graduate student hires?
This prize will be awarded to the program or initiative that is nurturing values and ethics in an innovative, measurable and tangible fashion.
The – inaugural – Nurturing Wellbeing & Purpose Award will reward a project that helps to foster mental and/or physical wellbeing; and/or clarity of purpose among faculty, students, or other education stakeholders.
This prize will be given to the project that most successfully furthers scientific, humanistic and critical theoretical understanding of learning, engages in the design and implementation of learning innovations, and consequently improves instructional methodologies.
The Reimagine Education Sustainability Award will be given to the project that best encourages or implements policy designed to enhance institutional sustainability.
Such projects might concern themselves with sustainability from an environmental, social, economic, or human sustainability perspective. Projects, of course, may also concern themselves with more than one of these forms of sustainability.
This prize will be awarded to the company or institution that has leveraged the power of partnership to innovate, scale or improve their offering and enhance the learners’ experience or outcomes.
Winners of the QS Reimagine Education Regional Awards will receive official certification in recognition of their achievement.
