Notes on the Staff/Board Retreat: Planning for 2015-2018
The Honourable Burchell Whiteman started the session with a welcome to Board members and Commonwealth of Learning (COL) staff members. He thanked COL for inviting the Board to the Retreat, and to discuss the issue of how COL should position itself post-MDGs. After the introduction to the topic, there would be two presentations, one from Mr. Martin Bean and the second from Professor Atta-Ur-Rahman, which is related to our mission of using technologies to enhance learning for development (L4D). The Honourable Whiteman extended a special welcome to the representative from India, Sri Ashok Thakur. The Honourable Whiteman noted that he was very happy to be here, and was looking forward to the forthcoming presentations. He then turned the floor over to Professor Kanwar.
