Adani University is hosting the Global Education Forum ahead of the academic year 2022-23 to share ideas and initiatives. The theme of the forum is Educational transformation and Global sustainabiliy. The forum brought together renowned national and international academicians and industry experts from diverse fields to deliberate on Education for Transformation and Transformation for Sustainability.
The forum was inaugurated by Dr Priti G. Adani, President of Adani University, in the presence of other distinguished speakers and panellists, including Padma Vibhushan, Dr. Anil Kakodkar, Dr Victoria Galan- Muros, Chief Research and Analysis, UNESCO International Institute for Higher Education in America and the Caribbean, Dr Arun Sharma (Vice-Chancellor, Adani University), and Prof. Dr M. Muruganant (Provost, Adani University).
Dr. Anil Kakodkar said,”The development of new technology depends upon new knowledge created. So, research & development is the main engine in the knowledge era. Knowledge in action, knowledge that delivers.”
Dr Priti G. Adani (President, Adani University) said, “For India to become a manufacturing hub at the intersection of global supply chains — very much in line with Prime Minister’s vision of ‘Make in India’ and ‘Make for the World’ – the most important requirement will be the ability to educate and scale up its human capital to a new breed of professionals. Professionals who are resilient, entrepreneurial, and ready to thrive in a volatile and uncertain world. We strongly believe that the most important task of nation building is the development of human capital, and the establishment of Adani University provides us with a unique opportunity to do so.”
As part of the forum, two distinct panel discussions, Education for Transformation and Transformation for Sustainability, were held, in which notable speakers from academia and industry expressed their perspectives. These conversations identified critical characteristics required for the transition from industry-based education modules to sustainability-oriented education modules, as well as transformation within the system through skilling, reskilling of teachers, and the innovative education system.
