Tenth Pan-Commonwealth Forum on Open Learning

Commonwealth of Learning (COL) and Athabasca University (AU) will host the Tenth Pan-Commonwealth Forum on Open Learning (PCF10) in Calgary, Canada, from 14 to 16 September 2022, at the Calgary TELUS Convention Centre.

The Forum takes place every three years and is considered one of the world’s leading international conferences on open, distance and technology-enabled learning.

To ensure the Forum can be accessible to as many delegates as possible, COL and AU are excited to share that this year PCF10 will be a hybrid event. The Forum will continue to provide a rich in-person experience that Forum delegates have come to expect, while also providing an opportunity for virtual attendees to access a mix of live, on-demand and interactive content. Further details about the in-person and virtual options of the 2022 hybrid Forum, as well as delegate registration information, will be available soon.

Innovations for Educational Resilience

Covid-19 has had a significant impact on education and training. If we want to build resilient education systems, we must address issues of learning loss due to school closures and lack of access to technology for teaching and learning.
