Developing a Digital Strategy for Distance Education in Myanmar
The Transformation by Innovation in Distance Education (TIDE) project (https://www.spheir.org.uk/partnership-profiles/transformation-innovation-distance-education) aims to contribute to the strengthening of Distance Education (DE) in Myanmar as set out in the National Education Strategic plan. This paper presents a short case study exploring how TIDE is working with stakeholders to develop an inclusive ‘digital strategy’ for the project. It outlines opportunities and challenges specific to the Myanmar context and concludes by highlighting some key emerging digital strategy approaches. These approaches have both the potential to improve the quality and workplace relevance of DE courses, and to meet wider economic development goals. // Paper ID 176
