Tenth Pan-Commonwealth Forum on Open Learning


From 14 to 16 September 2022, the Commonwealth of Learning and Athabasca University (AU), Canada, will be co-hosting the Tenth Pan-Commonwealth Forum on Open Learning (PCF10) in Calgary. The theme is “Innovations for Educational Resilience.”

Academics, researchers, technology innovators, development practitioners, administrators, COL stakeholders and partner institutions are invited to submit proposals for the Forum.

PCF10 will address issues and challenges in formal, non-formal and informal learning, reflecting a spectrum of ideas — from policy interventions to practical innovations — for building resilience and supporting the achievement of Sustainable Development Goal 4. Presentations will be grouped around four sub-themes: Building resilience; Fostering lifelong learning; Inspiring innovations; Promoting equity and inclusion.

There will be a special focus in each of the sub-themes on (i) educating girls and (ii) using emerging technologies for education and training (e.g., applications of artificial intelligence, augmented reality, virtual reality, and robotics).
