Integrating Australia with Asia

It is believed that many questions are expected to be answered in this spectacular gala of education in which mavens of education will interact, discuss and brainstorm on various issues. In recent years, we have seen an over hype of how globalisation & digitisation are re-shaping higher education & training. But is the higher education & training ecosystem in 2014 radically different than what it was in 2013?

Let's look at MOOCs – While 2012 was called as the year of the MOOCs, soon enough 2013 became the year of the backlash of the MOOCs. What will 2014 be called in regard to MOOCs?

What does globalisation of higher education & training mean? Is it dissemination of knowledge on a global scale at one end? Or is it simply getting more overseas students at the other end? Or opening more international branch campuses?

What then is the state of higher education & training on the ground in US, India, Hong Kong, Chile, Australia and other countries – especially in regard to impacts of Globalisation & Digitisation? Don’t get bother over these enigmatic questions. Join on 4 June at Edu TECH 2014 in Brisbane for the Integrating Australia with Asia Conference on how globalisation & digitisation are re–shaping Higher Education & Training.

Listen to and get your questions answered from prominent leaders from a number of countries and understand higher education/training environments in various countries strategize on how best to participate in higher education/training opportunities in other countries assess student exchange, faculty exchange & joint research opportunities understand education technology partnership opportunities internationally Or simply to network with over 5000 education practitioners attending EduTECH.

Why You Should Not Opt For IIT Bombay

This article is written by IITians in theblog








If asked to compare IIT Bombay to IIT Delhi, most students say that the difference is negligible. Both are in metropolitan cities with good options for hostels, PG accommodations, food and entertainment. Cultural activities are equally good as is the faculty and study methodology. Even placements at the two IITS are amongst the best in the country. Yet figures indicate that the top JEE rank holders prefer Computer Science Engineering at IIT Mumbai rather than IIT Delhi. But, we are here to tell you when and why you can avoid IIT Mumbai.

Mumbai IIT was earlier placed in the suburbs, away from the crowds, giving IITians the space and peace to pursue their career goals. Today the area in Powai is surrounded by high rise building, malls and traffic snarls, bringing with it all the clatter and patter of a metropolitan hub. Just like the population and popularity of Powai and its neighbouring areas has grown, so has the quality of education at thi…

Second Pakistani University opens in UAE

RAS AL KHAIMAH, (UAE): One more Pakistani University has started its operations in Ras Al Khaimah with a mission to provide good quality affordable education for Pakistani families living in UAE. Name as “Abasyn University”, the new educational platform will offer degree courses to the 800 to 1,000 pupils who comes out of Pakistani high schools in the UAE every year.

On average, university fees in the UAE start at about Dh25,000 a year. However, for anything science or engineering based, costs can rise to more than Dh45,000.The…
