Challenges of higher education to be addressed at the 8th World Edu Summit hosted by MTC Global

26 July 2018 - MTC Global (India), a global think tank in higher education and a member institution of the United Nations Academic Impact (UNAI), is organizing and will host the 8th World Edu Summit that will take place in 8 September 2018 in Bangalore, India. The theme of the event will be Industry 4.0 ~ Impact on Higher Education and Mastering Hypergrowth. According to the organizers, there is an urgency to think creatively about the manufacturing process, value chain, distribution and customer service processes.

Universities emphasize their role in shaping future technology by being the test beds for innovationand educating future generations. Traditional education has contributed greatly to the current levels of industrial evolution and technological advancement. However, in order for higher education to deliver future generations with the right set of skills and knowledge an imperative question has to be asked regarding how higher education institutes would be affected by the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

Also, how the delivery of education will be transformed. Combining the strength of traditional higher education with the increasing trend of massive open online courses represents necessary steps to scale quality education. On the other hand, notions of “Global Identity” and “Education for You” embody aspects, if globally embraced, that would transform global higher education. These and more will explored during the summit under two panel discussions.
