Open, Flexible and Distant Education: How Instructional Design Can Support Equitable, Inclusive and Values-Driven Learning Experiences
About this event
It cannot be underscored that the world of learning is currently under full mutation. The pandemic has brought barely concealed realities to the surface. Education is a matter of justice: access to and quality of education are unevenly distributed. Financial resources, gender, ethnicity, and location widely determine the opportunities for education from the primary to the tertiary levels. UNESCO’s World Inequality Database on Education provides incisive data on the societal and economic rifts impacting educational opportunities, to which ethical reflection can provide meaningful avenues for solutions.
There is, however, a complementary and fascinating array of dimensions of learning and education on which the webinars will help shed light. Why do we learn and what enables us to learn? How can tailored education programmes serve underrepresented groups, the preservation of endangered languages or the empowerment of marginalised populations? Last, but not least, how can learning and education unleash the potential for societal innovation and transformation?
This fourth Blue Table Webinar of 2023, the first of the second semester of the year, will look at open, flexible and distance education, investigating how instructional design can support equitable, inclusive and values-driven learning experiences.
