Speeches: By Sir John Daniel and colleagues August/September 2005)
This booklet contains the texts of six speeches that I delivered at conferences and symposia during the trip. Because their access to the Internet is sometimes limited, African colleagues whom I met often asked for ‘hard copies’ of my addresses. Here they are. The subjects cover various aspects of COL’s work: the contribution of technology to education; open/distance learning and development; distance learning in the context of Africa; cross-border higher education; eLearning; and teacher training. Some themes recur between speeches, but since the topics are different we have preferred to maintain the integrity of each text rather than eliminating all repetition. - Sir John Daniel, September 2005 Contents: 1) Open and distance education for Africans and by Africans / African Council of Distance Education, Tshwane, South Africa, 12 August 2005, Sir John Daniel, Vis Naidoo // 2) Distance education: What is its relevance to Africa and Zambia? / Open and Distance Learning Symposium, Lusaka, Zambia, 27 August 2005, Sir John Daniel // 3) ODL in an international context: Trends, prospects and challenges / Namibia visit - public lecture, Lusaka, Zambia, 29 August 2006, Sir John Daniel, Asha Kanwar, Stamenka Uvalic-Trumbic // 4) Towards education for all: The critical role of open and distance learning in national development / Namibian Conference on Open Learning, Windhoek, Namibia, 30 August 2005, Sir John Daniel // 5) ICTs in education: Can digital dividend replace digital divide? / WITFOR Conference, Gaborone, Botswana, 1 September 2005, Sir John Daniel, Paul West, Susan D’Antoni, Stamenka Uvalic-Trumbic // 6) ODL and ICTs for teacher development in sub-Saharan Africa: The experience of the Commonwealth of Learning / BOCODOL Workshop, Gaborone, Botswana, 1 September 2005, Sir John Daniel, Mohan Menon
