The millennials in India and globally are a dynamic group with their own set of ideas on various issues confronting contemporary society. Unfortunately, we have not been able to create a platform where such ideas could be shared, appreciated and incorporated into policy making.
In order to fill this lacuna, the Federation for World Academics (FWA) www.worldacademicsfederation.org is launching an event to provide a platform to students in the UG/PG programs in Arts & Sciences, Engineering, Management and Medicine to share their ideas on a specific topic/issue in a competitive format during the Asia-Pacific Summit on “Teaching-Learning Content & Process in APAC in Higher Education” on February 15, 2018 at hotel Le-Meridien, Janpath, New Delhi.
FWA is a platform where issues and challenges in higher education are deliberated upon by academicians, academic leaders, academic policy makers and industry leaders along with other stake holders so as to improve the world of academia to achieve its ideals. FWA also strives to advocate with the government and policy makers to create right policy environment for growth of accessible and quality academic excellence in the society.
