The Research Colloquium provides a platform for researchers to share new and emerging research on open learning, interrogate national and international research evidence on the benefits of flexible and blended learning and identify research gaps in relation to open learning, including flexible and blended learning.
The objectives of the Research Colloquium are to:
- Engage with research on open learning in post-school education and training (PSET)
- Consider implications of the research for policy, strategy, planning and practice
- Identify research gaps in relation to PSET in the context of open learning; and
- Debate whether and how diverse modes of teaching and learning can improve access to and quality of PSET.
