ICDE members establish new regional centre in the Pacific

 

ICDE members The Commonwealth of Learning (COL) and University of the South Pacific (USP) have formed a partnership to establish a new regional centre for open and distance learning in the Pacific.

The centre will be called The Pacific Centre for Flexible & Open Learning for Development (c), and its purpose will be to raise the profile of open and distance learning, and support collaboration.

PACFOLD will be a “network of networks” to facilitate flexible and open learning for sustainable development in the Pacific through advocacy, communication, innovation and research.

The new centre will be located at USP, COL will provide capacity building support, and it will become operational later this year.
