Theme of the Conference

Theme of the Conference:

Today’s world witnesses a fast and phenomenal rise in the interaction between communities, societies and nations due to Information and Communication Technology Revolution. Every country is going through a massive and amazing change to meet the ever growing needs of the modern world. Some are revolutionary and some are evolutionary. The economic system of every nation is formed by the combination of a large number of subsystems which, in turn, are evolved from its socio-cultural set up. Education is one of such subsystems. With the passage of time, education has transformed itself to meet the needs of the society.

Way back to historical ages in Indian education system, the total education was concentrated on the establishment of the existence of God, heaven and hell. Today, scholars spend lot of time on seminars, debates, group discussions, case studies, etc. dealing with developments of new materials, machines and applications of energy. In ancient times, students were provided with the knowledge about Hindu religion that brought them close to nature, yogasanas, knowledge about practical situations of life etc. through Gurukul education system. Modern education provides knowledge about humanities, science, technology, electronic systems, latest gadgets, commerce, management etc.

In the beginning, for hundreds of thousands of years, children educated themselves through self-directed play and exploration. That was learning for survival. With the rise of agriculture, and later of industry, and thereafter industrial revolution, children became forced laborers. Play and exploration were suppressed.

The priorities in the world of education have witnessed remarkable shifts from time to time because of the influence of social needs. The emphasis on the humanities as a source of culture in ancient times till the renaissance period (1300 AD to 1700 AD) was shifted to the emphasis on science and economics during the post‐renaissance period. The transition from medieval to the modern world, the twentieth‐century focus has been shifted to technology and management and to substantiate the above changes; the dawn of twenty first century is witnessing a revolution in electronics and communication. Thus, the course of higher education has undergone a tremendous change.

This international conference on Emerging Global Trends In Humanities, Science, Technology, Commerce and Management Education (ICEGTE 2018) is a humble attempt to create a platform to understand and discuss various issues with respect to the influence of changing world scenario and the emerging global trends in the higher education system in general and its effects and experiences in different continents in particular.
