Bali will serve as destination for the The 24th ICDE World Conference which will be hosted by the Open University (Universitas Terbuka) in Indonesia on October 2-5, 2011.

Meant to serve as a worldwide forum on Open and Distance Learning (ODL), leaders in that field will gather in Bali to exchange ideas and strategies to promote new approaches to create a future in which environmental, societal and economic considerations are balanced in the pursuit of personal and communal prosperity.

To be held at the Westin Hotel, Nusa Dua, Bali, the two main days of the conference will feature a distinguished roster of scheduled speakers from the public, private and educational sectors:

• President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, President of the Republic of Indonesia

• Muhammad Nuh, Minister of Education, Republic of Indonesia

• Hal Plotkin, Senior Policy Advisor, Office of the Under Secretary of Education, U.S. Department of Education

• Duk Hoon Kwak, President and CEO, Educational Broadcasting System (EBS), South Korea

• Lawrence Lessig, Lawyer, Activist and Founder of Creative Commons, U.S.A.

• Rory McGreal, Associate Vice-President, Research, Athabasca University, Canada.

• Gráinne Conole, Professor of e-learning, the Open University, United Kingdom

Nearly 300 separate presentations will be conducted during main and parallel sessions. The conference discusses issues and challenges for ODL under the following sub-themes:

. ODL and human capacity building
. ODL in a changing world
. Quality and ODL – the way forward
. Management and strategic development of ODL
. Open Educational Resources (OER) in a global world
. International development and distance learning


Founded in 1938 in Canada, ICDE is a non-governmental organization in formal consultative relations with UNESCO that seeks to promote lifelong, open and flexible learning. With membership drawn from 50 countries, ICDE provides support and strategic advice to members seeking to undertake collaboration projects and obtain funding.
