The Reimagine Education Awards and Conference – the ‘Oscars’ of Education’ – is delighted to announce that Imperial College Business School have confirmed their status as Official Visionary Partner, as the initiative seeks to identify and reward education’s most innovative approaches.
The partnership will see Imperial College Business School host the first day of the 2019 Reimagine Education Conference (8th December, Imperial College London, 9th-10th December, Queen Elizabeth II Centre, London), co-convene a number of the conference sessions, and assign senior academic faculty and leadership to the initiative’s Steering Committee.
Each year, the Reimagine Education Awards & Conference culminates in our prestigious Gala Dinner, at which the ten highest-scoring category winners deliver two-minute elevator pitches to our delegate dinner audience. Among this audience will be fifteen outstanding expert educators from some of the world’s top universities, edtech companies, online education providers, and edtech accelerators.
Their evaluations will prove pivotal in determining the direction of our $50,000 funding pool, and our Steering Committee has – ensuring that only the finest innovations are rewarded – elected fifteen individuals ideally-placed to evaluate each application’s innovation, uniqueness, scalability, and efficacy. You can meet our Grand Jury – here.
