Dear & Esteemed Colleagues,

We are also organizing panel discussions, invited presentations on topics of interest to the academic community.
The upcoming conference is being jointly organized by Global Business Research Journals (GBRJ) and SDMIMD, a prestigious management school functioning in Mysore, Karnataka State-India.
The skills gained in the past, undoubtedly, is of no use in the 21st century and technology has made greater transformations in the way we teach. More emphasis is accorded to core skills such as e-learning, virtual education, critical thinking, problem-solving and a few other related aspects.
Bill Gates, the technology guru, has once observed that his aim would be ensure, ‘Paperless Office’ and Teacherless Classrooms’. A few countries have already started holding virtual classes without a teacher and it is going on quite successfully. Days are not far enough before Robots replace human elements/teachers from the classroom. So, there is a compelling need to change the way we offer education to our children. Teachers of 21st Century are slowly becoming facilitators rather than teachers. The challenge is that in this fast-changing global educational landscape, teachers have to prove to the students that whatever they impart has relevance to the issues and problems being faced by humanity/ business community today and also ensure that his teaching would help them to hone their skills perfectly synchronizing with the needs and requirements of the industry. Unless critical thinking, communications skills, problem-solving skills, research skills, ability to apply technology and the appetite to solve the global issues are taught, students may not be attentive in the classroom. Undoubtedly, teachers have to hone their skills appropriately before it becomes too late.
The aim of the upcoming conference in Zurich aims at bringing together researchers, practitioners and policy makers to deliberate on core issues affecting higher education which includes, teaching, pedagogy, learning/assessment, e-learning, virtual classrooms, educational leadership among others.
