AGU expert nominated as judge in key Global Education Awards

Manama, In recognition of his expertise as an educational practitioner, E-learning Expert at the Arabian Open University (AGU) Mr. Arban Stephen, has been nominated as an official judge for the 2019 Reimagine Education QS Awards by the Reimagine Education Steering Committee.

Annually organised by QS; a global leading higher education marketing company, in cooperation with the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania in the United States; a university ranked number one in best business schools, the Reimagine Education QS Awards aims to promote innovation in education by showcasing modern university projects and initiatives that will advance the future of education in the world.

The results are scheduled to be announced in the British Capital London during the upcoming month (December), simultaneously with the Reimagine Education QS Conference, which is annually organised and attended by hundreds of representatives from the most prominent universities in the world. The conference will address several topics and its impacts on the future of education in the world, such as open education, the developments of artificial intelligence, the future of databases and means of education that are exposed to the internet.

It’s worth mentioning that AGU has made a remarkable achievement during the last edition of the awards, as it won the silver award in the Regional Awards for the Middle East Region in the 2018 edition of the Reimagine Education QS Conference. The university received the award for its submitted project Lucina � AR, which was one of 125 projects shortlisted for final rounds of judgement from over 1, 150 educational innovative projects submitted from all over the world.

The project is part of AGU’s initiative to launch the Clinical Simulation and Training Center last year. Lucina is the most advanced simulator and it is the only simulator with integrated materno-fetal physiology giving learners access to a practical and unique birthing experience every time, as it simulates both normal deliveries and obstetrical emergencies.
