Access to Learning and Asian Open Universities: In Context
My presentation this morning is about meaningful access and it begins with my belief that education, as a resource, is a basic and fundamental right. [...] I wish to take this presentation further in three parts: First, I would like to find out whom the Asian Learner is. Secondly, I would like to share with you some of the barriers that impede access to the Asian Learner. Thirdly, I would like to challenge you to design initiatives that would enable freedom of access to learning by ALL those who want that access, here in Asia. This challenge is not just to policymakers and senior managers, but also to academic colleagues who hold the key to ultimately make a difference and bring about change.
