Education programming at Congress 2012
Canadian Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences
Forty years ago, after having the revelation of a revolution in higher education as an intern at the infant UK Open University, Sir John Daniel made opening up education the theme of his career. He has nurtured open and distance learning in universities as practitioner and scholar and coordinated the global Education for All campaign. The final months of his work at the Commonwealth of Learning aim to persuade the worldâ€™s governments to support the concept of open educational resources.
In this keynote, tomorrow morning from 8:30 to 9:45 in Room N1001 in the Science Building at Wilfrid Laurier University, Sir John Daniel will reflect candidly on these experiences to ask whether opening up access to the institutions and processes of learning really does foster freedom and democracy.
