Developing a Common Wealth of Learning: Selected speeches of Sir John Daniel and colleagues
Part of the mission of the Commonwealth of Learning is to show intellectual leadership in the application of technology to learning. Although electronic communication is fast becoming a vehicle of choice for the discourse that sustains academic debate, the spoken and printed word retains a special role. The country visits that I undertake for COL include speaking engagements that allow me to explore a range of topics touching on learning for development. This booklet is a partial response to the requests that I receive for “hard copies” of these addresses and follows a similar publication in 2005 containing six speeches I gave in Africa.- Sir John Daniel, April 2006 Contents: 1) Mega-universities = Mega quality? / 2nd World Summit of Mega-Universities, New Delhi, 25 September 2005, Sir John Daniel, Asha Kanwar, Stamenka Uvalic-Trumbic // 2) Collaboration in the time of competition / International Conference on Open and Distance Education, New Delhi, 19-23 November 2005, Sir John Daniel, Asha Kanwar, Stamenka Uvalic-Trumbic, Zeynep Varoglu // 3) eLearning and free open source software: The key to global mass higher education? / International seminar on Distance, Collaborative and eLearning, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, 4-5 January 2006, Sir John Daniel, Asha Kanwar, Stamenka Uvalic-Trumbic, Susan D’Antoni // 4) Open source for open learning / IDLEL02: The Second African Conference on Digital Commons, Nairobi, Kenya, 23 February 2006, Sir John Daniel, Paul West // 5) Open and distance learning in small states: Which models? / Ministry of Education, Mauritius, 11 January 2006, Sir John Daniel // 6) Virtual university, flexible learning: Why a Virtual University for Small States of the Commonwealth? / Orientation and Planning Meeting for Government Representatives of Small States of the Commonwealth National Institute of Education, Singapore, 12 September 2005, Sir John Daniel // 7) Open schooling for better working / Vocational Education and Training through Open Schooling, Kovalam, Kerala, India, 8-10 February 2006, Sir John Daniel, Susan Phillips
