Crossing Lines: Research and Policy Networks for Developing Country Education

By Noel F. McGinn | Go to book overview

COMMONWEALTH NETWORKS IN EDUCATION

Education Team at the Commonwealth Secretariat

The Commonwealth provides a supportive context for links and networks in education reflecting features in terms of similar education traditions and structures, shared language, and a number of Commonwealth-wide and regional professional associations.

A new institution which links up many of the distance education institutions is the Commonwealth of Learning (COL) in Vancouver. The database at the International Center for Distance Learning at the Open University in Milton Keynes is Britain's contribution to COL. It constitutes a rich store of information on distance education institutions and programs, that is not confined to Commonwealth countries.

There are a number of well-established associations which bind Commonwealth education institutions together and provide a framework for joint activities and the sharing of experience and information. The longest established is undoubtedly the Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU) based in London and having almost 400 subscribing institutions in its membership. Another institutional membership body is the Commonwealth Association of Polytechnics in Africa (CAPA), which was founded in 1978 and has over 130 technical and vocational institutions in its membership; its headquarters is in Nairobi.

Three professional associations in the education field are the Commonwealth Council for Educational Administration, founded in 1970 and headquartered in Australia; the Commonwealth Association of Science, Technology, and Mathematics Educators, founded in 1978 and its secretariat located in London; and the Commonwealth Association for the Education and Training of Adults, founded in the late 1980s and based at the University of Zimbabwe in Harare. These associations have several hundred individual members, publish newsletters, and organize seminars and conferences.
