Reimagine Education was first launched in 2014, the joint brainchild of QS’s CEO Nunzio Quacquarelli and Jerry Wind, Lauder Professor at the Wharton School. As providers of the world’s most popular university ranking since 2004 – the QS World University Rankings – Quacquarelli recognized that the tables compiled by QS were still reliant on proxies to measure teaching quality.
They recognized that pedagogical innovation would be essential if educational institutions were to successfully incorporate technological advancements into their curricula in evidence-based ways. Thus, Nunzio Quacquarelli and Professor Jerry Wind created the Reimagine Education competition as a means by which educators would be encouraged to come forward and share best practices. QS offered a prize fund of $50,000 to the most effective, original approach that improved teaching or learning outcomes: thus, Reimagine Education was born.
