CBPS presented on Open and Distance Learning (ODL) at the Centre for Public Policy (IIMB) Conference held at India Habitat Centre, New Delhi on 24 August 2018. The dissemination session was titled ‘Open and Distance Learning (ODL) in Secondary Education : Fields of Thought’.
Our session on ODL focused on status of secondary education and the findings from our study, followed by a panel discussion on potentials and limitations of ODL. The session was extremely topical as it made linkages between ODL and universalisation of secondary education, especially in the context of the New Education Policy.
Prof. Jandhyala Tilak (NUEPA/CSD New Delhi) and Prof. Shyam Menon (University of Delhi) were the panelists for the session. The session was chaired by Dr. Jyotsna Jha. Neha Ghatak and Shreekanth Mahendiran presented the study.
