Call for Papers: Pan-Commonwealth Forum on Open Learning

"Achieving Development Goals: Innovation, Learning, Collaboration and Foundations" is the theme of the fourth Pan-Commonwealth Forum on Open Learning (PCF4), to take place in Ocho Rios, Jamaica, October 30-November 3, 2006.

Organised by the Commonwealth of Learning (COL) in association with a Caribbean consortium, PCF4 will bring together stakeholders from governments and institutions, including educators and allied professionals from throughout the world.

Participants will share ideas and help to set the agenda for using open and distance learning to advance international development through widening educational access, bridging the digital divide, and applying advances in connecting technology to teaching and learning for development of communities and nations at large, but especially in the less developed countries of the Commonwealth. The Caribbean consortium is being led by Professor Stewart Marshall, Director, of the University of the West Indies' Distance Education Centre (UWIDEC).

For further information, go to the PCF4 Web-site at: http://www.col.org/pcf4/
