Open Education Global
In March DDL was pleased to attend the Open Education Global conference in Cape Town, South Africa, through the support of ROER4D, under which the DDL has been supported to conduct an impact study in Afghanistan. We presented the findings of the study on the use of DDL in rural Afghanistan. We found that DDL improved lesson plans and helped initiate collaboration among students. The conference was an excellent opportunity to network with people from other countries contributing to the open education movement, and to share our experience in Afghanistan. This is the third OE Global conference we have been able to participate in, with previous conferences being hosted in Banff, Canada and Krakow, Poland. The next OE Global conference is scheduled for Delft, The Netherlands, 24-26 April, 2018.
