Greetings from the Commonwealth of Learning
Greetings from the Commonwealth of Learning, Reception to celebrate the announcement of the UNESCO-COL Chair in Open Educational Resources at Athabasca University, Monday, 31 January 2011 Government House, Edmonton, AB, Canada, Dave Wilson, Commonwealth of Learning // I am very pleased to be here from the Commonwealth of Learning. I bring greetings from COL’s President, Sir John Daniel – who is a former Vice President of Athabasca University in its early days – and Vice President Professor Asha Kanwar, as well as from my other colleagues in much-warmer Vancouver. // COL is an international, intergovernmental organisation. We’ve been privileged to be hosted in Canada since our inception in 1989. The Government of Canada is one of COL’s six major donor governments. We work with partners throughout the 54-member Commonwealth, including Athabasca University, to help improve opportunities for learning through the application of open, distance and technology-mediated teaching methods.
