Reimagine Education is an international competition rewarding innovative initiatives aimed at enhancing student learning outcomes and employability that culminates in a global conference for all those seeking to shape the future of education.
This year, over 1,150 educational innovators from all the world submitted their projects to the 17 Award Categories. EdX submitted the MicroMasters programs to the Nurturing Employability Award, which is awarded to the project that can most clearly demonstrate a link between their project’s approach and improved employability outcomes.
