(ICMIT 2015) | 10-11 April 2015, Jaipur

Technical and Higher Education in India : Emerging Landscapes






ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
International School of Informatics & Management
(Formerly India International Institute of Management)                    Technical Campus
Technical and Higher education in India is undergoing a period of significant change. This is being driven by a number of factors: political, economic, cultural, and technological. India's major challenge in skills and education is to comprehend the demographic dividend of bringing several hundred million young Indians into training and education and also provide quality education to them to succeed in the long term. In the changing global scenario traditional learning is not a sufficient option. Ample exposure to technology, and global participation are gaining significance.

India has made remarkable progress in technical education, particularly IT education, that prowess however does not reflect in the world rankings of institution of higher learning. The state of research in higher education institutions is also not very satisfactory. Deliberations on addressing these issues are there fore necessary.

This International conference on the theme “Technical and Higher Education in India: Emerging Landscapes” provides a platform for the same. It aims at bringing together academicians, researchers and practitioners to exchange and share their experiences and research results about all aspects of technical and higher education. The aim of the conference is to provide a premier interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary forum to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns; practical challenges encountered and the solutions adopted in the field.

The conference focuses on diverse dimensions of the theme. The sessions are designed to address issues and means of higher education, educational objectives, instructional strategies, outcomes, and research. The conference is thus an opportunity to exhibit effective instructional methods and disseminate recent research intended to improve the quality of higher and technical education in India.

ICMIT 2015 will prove to be an event to discuss, debate, network, and share good practices on increasing access, nurturing diversity, and creating an all-encompassing milieu. .
