“Education Innovation” could mean something different for an educator, a technologist, a corporate and for learners. In this constantly evolving sector, we must find ways to accommodate changes in institutional demands, demographics, technology, learner needs, political pressures, employability and other challenges.

The Fourth Industrial Revolution is changing our way of life. It’s bringing in the rapid advancement of technologies, especially in the areas of advanced robotics, artificial intelligence, and machine learning. As technology becomes an easily accessible tool to all, it shapes the lives of young adults and workers across the globe, erasing borders and allowing people to work from anywhere. 

If the robots are coming to change the nature of the world of work, how can Indian skills and education respond? How can the sector today help create a workforce that can work on tomorrow’s jobs? Where are the opportunities for foreign collaboration with the UK, US, Middle East and elsewhere? The need of the hour is answers to those critical questions and hence, QS I·GAUGE was invited to become the Knowledge Partner for the event.

In this one day conference, Santhosh Karnananda, Head of Client Relations at QS I·GAUGE, shared his valuable insights on “Rankings and Ratings: Paradigms for Quality & Accountability in Higher Education”, where he explained how rankings and ratings are the best available tools for transparency and how ratings can be used by educational institutes to enable a sense of internal accountability and transparency. Moreover, he explained in detail the comprehensive methodology used by QS I·GAUGE rating system, the difference between ratings and rakings, and how they will transform the landscape of the Indian higher education in the years to come.
