Leadership Forum Breakfast, Box Hill Institute, Box Hill, Victoria, Australia, 5 April 2011, Keynote presentation, Sir John Daniel Commonwealth of Learning via Skype // At the Sydney Conference I was given the topic Innovation in boosting participation: considering the potential of IT. // That conference also suggested some sub-topics and I shall address those too. // How can IT be used to boost participation? Innovation to achieve higher participation, A global perspective: reviewing global developments, successes and failures, To what extent will distance learning reform the higher education sector? // I shall begin by enumerating some of the questions around the issue of boosting participation. Then I shall look at the different ways in which innovation can make higher education more open. Then, after giving a sweeping summary of some global developments, I shall conclude with the interesting question of whether distance education will reform the higher education sector. I suspect that it might, but not in ways we all would welcome.
