Educators can use dimensions in education as a learning-centered framework to create instructional processes and methods that are most effective for both students and the community.
Educators and school owners can use these seven dimensions to create ways in which students can be more engaged. They can empower their faculty to use the teaching methods that are required, and make the community aware of the school's impact both in the local area and worldwide. School heads and investors in education should be aware of and contribute to the development of these seven education dimensions.
A radical, disruptive shift is taking place in the world at an unprecedented pace. Digitalization, innovation, and technological advancement fundamentaly transform whole industries, reshape consumer demands, and chalenge conventional business logic. In order to adapt, education must change its instructional methods.
“An effective education curriculum is the one that is able to prepare students for the careers of the future and to be employable immediately upon graduation. It is imperative for educators to have a constant dialogue in order to adapt and upgrade the curriculum to address the future needs of the industry.”
To create an environment that fosters learning, identify the parameters that can impact the design, implementation, and supervision of future educational infrastructure projects.
“A learning center should be a perfect playground for the students to make as many mistakes as possible and learn from them before going to work in the industry. This is why we need to give them an environment that is a state of the art, to learn the best industry practices”
Institutions of higher education are facing increased competition and technological challenges, intensifying the pressure on the way they connect with prospective candidates and their key sponsors (parents and guardians). The issue is further complicated because student applicants aren’t following the traditional "marketing to sales to customer" funnel. Instead, each higher education prospecfollowsws a unique decision path, at a pace that can vary from several years to just a few weeks.
“As Education institutions, we have the responsibility to attract the best future talents for the industries we serve. The recruitment experience must immerse students in the culture of our institutions and industries, with each touchpoint delivering on our brand promise.”
Providing a skilled workforce to the industry is essential for any educational institution. Programs must therefore be constantly updated & adapted, as new tools and/or business models emerge, and new capabilities are required. Through continual contact with industry employers and regular faculty reviews, curricula must adapt constantly to ensure that teaching meets ever-changing students' and employers' needs.
“In order to ensure graduates’ employability, educators need to continuously innovate in the way they gather and apply insights from the field. Preparing students for fast-paced change in the real world means constant, fast-paced changes to the education syllabus.”
Email, WhatsApp, Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, YouTube, Smartphone, PC, tablet. There is no escaping it. Today’s student scrolls, clicks and swipes their way through the day, acquiring, processing and sharing information faster than ever before. Students are changing, and it is essential that the education sector keeps pace with this digital education revolution which is unfolding.
“With the rise of the digital natives, it is ever more difficult to keep learners engaged and involved in their learning process. Faculty needs to embrace these changes in our society to become digital facilitators.”
In educational institutions, there are many people who work hard to provide students with the best possible education. Staff members can be academic (faculty or teachers) or nonacademic (accountants, counselors, reception, marketing, etc.).
“Learning and innovation go hand in hand. The arrogance of success is to think that what you did yesterday will be sufficient for tomorrow”
Marketing of education institutions is a key function in education institutions and is to be handled just like in any other business. Education institutions exist in order to offer knowledge and experiences that wil help the students to enter the job market. Therefore, each institution needs to have a clearly defined marketing strategy and a plan in order to achieve its goals and objectives.
“Marketing of education institutions is just like any business; you have to market their brand. It is important to understand what marketing tools to leverage in order to boost enrollment numbers and build their reputation.”
