Future of Learning
The awards in this broad category are designed to shine a light on the innovative approaches that are shaping the future of learning.
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.
We seek projects to explore the limits 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?
For the Blended Award we seek the best 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? For the Presence Learning Award, we are keen to emphasize 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
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 and engagement through the use of information and communications technology.
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.
Immersive Experiential Learning Award (XR including AR/VR/mixed realities, Gaming, The Metaverse and Beyond)
This prize will be awarded to the company or institution that demonstrates the best example of an 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 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.
Future of Universities
The awards in this broad category are designed to recognise the transformation and evolution that universities and business schools are implementing to serve effectively current and future learners and provide future-proof qualifications.
We will reward a program that deploys a multi-media method of instructional delivery including a mix of Web-based instruction, streaming video conferencing, face-toface classroom time, distance learning through television or video, or other combinations of electronic and traditional educational models. Entrants for this category will be delivered largely online (though some hybrid learning is likely), with an emphasis on the above ‘distributed’ modes of delivery.
This prize will be awarded to the company or institution that has the best program or approach to supporti digital readiness now and in the future.
We will reward an outstanding pedagogical innovation, preferably created by a business school or consortium of business schools, with an emphasis on reimagining Graduate Management Education. Innovations in the Online MBA space should be submitted to our Best Online Program Award.
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.
Future of Work
The awards in this broad category are designed to capture effective ways to educate work-ready graduates, develop 21st century skills and foster lifelong learning, in a world increasingly and pervasively transformed by AI and machine learning.
This award will be presented to the project that can clearly demonstrate a link between their 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 project or initiative that demostrates impact and effectiveness in providing opportunities for personal and professional development, including upskilling and re-skilling, beyond formal education.
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.
Sustainability Education Award
Reimagine Education awards projects and initiatives that are educating learners about environmental and social sustainability.
This award will go to the most innovative approach for encouraging and teaching the principles and best practices of sustainable development. This might involve economic, environmental and/or social sustainability.
Reimagine Education awards projects and initiatives aimed at promoting values, ethics, purpose, diversity, access and inclusion.
This 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
We will reward projects from innovators who, driven by a keen sense of social responsibility, are seeking to improve access to higher education for under-served, underprivileged and under-represented students. Acknowledging the need for education’s scope to expand yet still further, we look for pedagogy or new educational model that is designed to bring quality education to new cohorts.
