About The Event

From the gurukul to the digital age in the modern era, the education model has undergone a sea change in India. The Indian education system, as one of the largest, has been studied upon and even used as a case study by various international bodies. But is it time to change and collaborate international models of education? India may soon overtake China as the world’s largest population and is expected to be world’s largest economy by 2020. With an average GDP of 8% over the last decade, India’s demand of higher education is all set to cross over 500 million in the next decade. Innovation and change may be the need of the hour.

They say, education builds a nation. And yet, despite adapting to the modern requirement of education and adding newer streams to the traditional courses, education in India still remains a ‘factory’ model where similar educated ‘products’ are delivered in varying proficiencies.

Not many are aware that India is home to one of the largest higher education hubs in the world. With an overall literacy rate of 75%, India has over 1.4 million schools, 152 central universities, 316 state universities & about 191 private universities. Some of these universities have already got global acclaim for their standard of under graduate and graduate education. With Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s digital vision for India, we can look forward to an online education hub of about US$ 40 billion in the next two years. With the school segment being valued at about $444 billion and with over 50% of India’s population being under the age of 25, educating India, and rightly educat¬ing at that, gains immense significance.

This will be a gathering of government officials, national and international ed¬ucation leaders, policy makers and industry decision makers to deliberate and discuss relevant topics that will help bring in new changes, taking industry to the next level. Few Topics of discussion will be:
- Indian education shining at the global pedestal : Need of new policies
- Reaching the far end: Can use of technology ensure a spike in literacy rate?
- Retaining talent within the country : Parameters and measuring impact of finan¬cial assistance
- Making way for next-gen education processes: Formal education vs. vocational trainings
- Research & Development: Action pointers to immediately include R&D into mainframe education context
- Thinking future: Evolution of teaching methods
