CATEGORY AWARDS

AI

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.

VIRTUAL REALITY/AUGMENTED REALITY

Approximately one month before the closure of the 2016 Reimagine Education Awards, Pokémon Go was released to the world, bringing the potential of Augmented Reality technologies to a mass audience.

If Augmented Reality and its theoretical sibling, Virtual Reality, are to prove of true value, however, they must prove to have applicability in multiple sectors.

We seek projects that harness these emerging technologies to improve teaching delivery, enhance employability outcomes, and leverage quality learning.

BEST EDUCATIONAL APP

This prize will be awarded to the project that creates the most innovative, accessible, usable app, and that can demonstrate a clear link between use of the app and improved learning outcomes.

E-LEARNING

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.

HYBRID LEARNING

For this category, we seek the best hybrid learning project that unifies web-based learning delivery and traditional learning practices. How can you and your team improve learning outcomes in a way that foregrounds the learning team (educator and present students), while also leveraging web-based internet resources?

ICT TOOLS FOR TEACHING, LEARNING, AND SUPPORT

This prize will be awarded to the company/institution that creates the most innovative Information Technology tool, and uses this tool to improve the educational experience of teachers, students, or both; or enhances the supportive framework upon which outstanding teaching and/or learning is constructed. For example, efficient IT interfaces are necessary for a successful feedback loop between teacher and learner, while comprehensive resource databases that can be consulted out of the classroom encourage independent thinking and learning.

K12

This prize will be given to the best project originally directed at a K-12 audience.

We seek any innovative new pedagogical approach, technological tool, or employability-enhancing endeavour that was targeted at, or is designed for, the K12 sector.

However, such projects should also either be scalable to a higher education audience, or prepare students for higher education more successfully than current approaches allow.

Last year’s K12 award was won by Smart Robot Coding School (SK Telecom, South Korea).

INNOVATION IN LEARNING SCIENCE

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.

BEST ONLINE PROGRAM
BUSINESS EDUCATION

Reinstated as a Category Award this year, the Business Education Award will reward an outstanding pedagogical innovation created by a business school or consortium of business schools, with an emphasis on reimagining the MBA, Executive MBA, and Business Masters. Innovations in the Online MBA space should be submitted to our Best Online Program Award.

NURTURING EMPLOYABILITY

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?

PRESENCE LEARNING & TEACHING

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?

LEARNING ASSESSMENT

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?

NURTURING WELLBEING & PURPOSE

The – inaugural – Nurturing Wellbeing & Purpose Award (kindly sponsored by TecMilenio) 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.

SUSTAINABILITY EDUCATION

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.

ENHANCING ACCESS & AFFORDABILITY
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 Enhancing Access and Affordability award, which will be given to a pedagogy or new educational model that is designed to bring quality education to new cohorts.
