Higher Education Awards

Award Categories

World Education Summit Awards are meant to admire the contributions and pioneering initiatives taken by individuals, preschools, schools, higher educational institutions, and Ed-Tech firms. With these awards, digitalLEARNING, Asia & Middle East’s premier magazine on innovations in education, would like to honour, and recognise the institutions/organisations that are Re-innovating, Re-vamping, Re-Defining & Re- Imagining the teaching-learning processes, in these testing times. With digital classes taking the centre stage, the learning outcomes have changed.
The World Education Summit (WES) Awards aim to acknowledge those individuals, educational institutions, and Ed-tech firms that have transformed teaching, learning, and employability outcomes.
Known for its authenticity and transparency, WES Awards bring recognition and visibility for an institution/organization across the sector. The summit has, in its past too, brought to fore unique initiatives and projects that have brought a paradigm shift in the education sphere within various parts of the country.
