Role of Technology in Open and Distance Education in reaching the unreached
ICDE Executive Committee Member, Alan Tait, Professor Emeritus of Distance Education and Development, The Open University, UK will be speaking at the ICDE International Conference in Pune, India on 10-11 March 2017.
Register for the conference today and look forward to hearing his perspectives on the role of Technology in Open and Distance Education in reaching the unreached.
Technology has also supported the mobility of knowledge and the reach of education for many thousands of years. But we are faced with challenges set by the UN Sustainable Development Goals for the next 15 years that demand a step change in the ways that societies view scale of opportunity and reach to social sectors, gender equity and rural areas. All of this has to be managed with quality of learning and teaching equally high on the agenda. This forms the background to the new UNESCO led initiative on quality in Higher Education, with ICDE as a senior partner, on which a progress report will be given.
