ABOUT THE EVENT
A NEW MOVEMENT IN EDUCATION
EPG, in association with EduGild, explores a new movement in Education which combines academic education with practical learning, and traditional teaching with new technologies at the first ever Education Innovation Conference in India, in July 2017.
If the robots are coming to change the nature of the world of work, how can the education sector respond? How can the sector today help create a workforce that can do tomorrow’s job? To what extend can education technology help? Are public sector universities adequately equipped to be as agile as they now need to be? Where the opportunities for foreign collaboration?
Previous editions of EIC have facilitated innovative global partnerships between educators, technologists and business leaders to help drive global education forward. Past delegates have comprised of Eminent Educators, Policymakers, EdTech startups and Investors from across Europe, the US, Africa and India.
Education Innovation could mean something different for an educator, a technologist, a corporate and for students. In this constantly evolving sector, we must find ways to accommodate changes in institutional demands, demographics, technology, student needs, pedagogical trends, political pressures, employability and other challenges.
Some of the topics we will discuss are:
- The global education technology landscape – and can it overcome educational inequality?
- Employment, Employability and Higher Education in India – The Missing Links
- Educating Generation Z – Let Them Colour Outside the Lines
- How IoT in Education is Changing the Way We Learn
- Investments and M&A trends in Education and Edtech
