The UNESCO Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCO Bangkok), supported by the ASEAN Cyber University (ACU), has initiated a project to facilitate a policy-level dialogue among different stakeholders of Open and Distance e-Learning (ODeL) to promote cross-border provision and recognition of ODeL-based higher education. 

A Regional Policy Forum will be held to serve as a venue for presenting the initial findings of the scoping study on the promotion of ASEAN regional integration through open and distance higher education, as well as contribute to the objectives of the study:

  • create a better understanding of the current status of open and distance higher education in ASEAN member countries and beyond, offered by both OUs and traditional universities, focusing on national qualification frameworks (macro), recognition and accreditation of degrees (meso) and quality assurance of ODL courses (micro)
  • provide a regional platform to deliberate on policy requirements that reinforce cross-border provision and recognition of open and distance higher education
  • facilitate continuous collaboration and partnership among numerous stakeholders.

 

Expected Outcomes

  •  comments on the initial findings of the scoping study and updates on the status of Open and Distance Higher Education in the ASEAN countries, which will be incorporated in the final version of the scoping study
  • initial deliberation on policy requirements that reinforce cross-border provision and recognition of Open and Distance Higher Education among ASEAN countries 
  • an engaged and active network of stakeholders who are able to contribute to current study, as well as in the follow-up study

 

Participants

The Forum will be attended by national researchers from each of the ASEAN countries who are participating in the scoping study, alongside officials from ACU and selected experts in the field of open and distance higher education.
