Summary of the PCF8 Online Discussion Forums
In order to kick-start momentum for the eighth Pan-Commonwealth Forum (PCF8), the Commonwealth of Learning (COL) and Open University Malaysia (OUM) organised four online discussion forums around PCF8’s sub-themes. We used an open-source platform called Discourse to organise the online discussion space, and used direct emails, mailing lists and social media to announce each online discussion forum. The main conference website and the COL website also provided links to the discussion forum website. // The online forums were scheduled between April and September 2016 and each ran for four weeks, as follows: effectiveness and efficiency (1 – 30 April 2016), access and inclusiveness (15 May – 15 June 2016), quality and equity in learning (1 – 30 July 2016), technology and innovation (15 August – 15 September 2016).
