The Role of the Commonwealth Education Hub in Sustainable Development
The Commonwealth Education Hub portal is a project that learns and adjusts as it progresses. The project allows the testing of knowledge-sharing approaches. The Education Hub offers four key services: collect – access to a curated collection of digital knowledge resources that includes commonwealth policy tools and frameworks, country policies and good practices, as well as discussion summaries produced by the community of practice or senior officials and practitioners. The Commonwealth Education Guide lists courses offered by institutions in the small states of the commonwealth. Information on bursaries and scholarships is available online. Data aggregation mechanisms provide access to free courses and tens of thousands of educational resources. Connect – more than 700 senior education policy makers, planners and professionals from across 53 commonwealth countries are connected through the community of practice mail group. Knowledge resource pages are maintained on topical areas, which include policy briefs and submissions by members. Consult – Commonwealth members can ask policy questions, request resources, engage in global advocacy with the hub staff and engage the support of an international pool of experts. Collaborate – support collaboration between networks and partners for research, resources and innovation. Partner pages assist in directing researchers and users to commonwealth sites, while specialised groups are created for ministers and senior officials and supported via the Education Hub. // This paper describes the origins and progress of the pilot project, and suggests options for the next phase of the project. // Paper ID 144
