ICDE invites members, partners and relevant associations in the North American region to join our launch event for the North American task force of the ICDE Global Advocacy Campaign (GAC).

At this event, participants will gain further insights into how to advocate for Open, Flexible and Distance Learning (OFDL) – both globally and locally – and how stakeholders can cooperate with each other across the region.

About the North American task force

The North American task force is designed as a community of practice dedicated to advocacy around open, flexible and distance education through direct engagement with diverse perspectives, special projects, research, publications, and thought leadership within and across the field of OFDL.

As a collective task force, these projects and their direction are critically community-led and offer task force members opportunities for leadership development and experience, prioritising community engagement and coalition-building.

The launch event is open to all.
However, please consider becoming a member of ICDE and/or OLC if you would like to take an active part in the North American task force.

We look forward to seeing you there and continuing to expand the community for Open, Flexible and Distance Learning in North America.
