Webinar 8 :: Making Indian Education Global
Can India become a “Vishwa Guru”?
This is one of the most debated and discussed questions among Indian education leaders and prominent academicians. Making Indian education global and contributing to the global knowledge economy is a key objective for our country right now.
India, with its superbly rich cultural heritage and strong spiritual roots, both of which are admirable qualities for students abroad, offers strong foundation for holistic learning in students. Plus, higher penetration of hybrid or blended learning models will enable us to offer education to foreign students without elaborate infrastructural changes by taking advantage of scalable and affordable technological interventions.
In the 8th edition of the webinar series Education for Life, we are thrilled to bring to you an engaging and immersive discussion around this subject. The topic of this live webinar will be Making Indian Education Global.
The discussion will revolve around making India a Vishwa Guru. The opportunities and challenges in pursuing this goal and what this means for India’s educational and geo-political reputation in the world. How do we get to a point where students from other parts of the world turn to India as the preferred destination to pursue higher education? How to reclaim India’s past status as an educational haven owing to glorious universities such as Nalanda and Takshashila? How can India enable countries that can benefit from our educational support?
Listen to eminent academicians explore this subject while sharing some of the deepest insights about Indian higher education, its immediate and long-term goals and how to overcome the obstacles that will come across along the way.
