Category: Distance Learning

Distance learning is a critical dimension of the RPLC since it promises to alleviate the challenges of both international comparisons and the remoteness of rural and northern people. For this reason we will explore, evaluate, and develop distance learning techniques and modules for engaging network members, policy decision-makers, and practitioners. As with the Institutes we will seek options for accreditation of successful student and professional participants.
