Abstract1. Welcome and Overview of the Commonwealth of Learning – Sir John Daniel // Sir John welcomed all to the planning retreat, noting that what came out of the meeting would be taken into consideration as the Commonwealth of Learning (COL) moves forward in the planning of its next Three Year Plan (TYP), 2012-2015. Next year, COL would have a formal draft of the plan to present to the Board. Sir John presented a timetable of COL’s planning process of the next TYP. // He then gave a brief overview of the afternoon’s agenda. Sir John and Professor Kanwar would start with brief preliminary presentations; Sir John would present COL’s strategic background, followed by Professor Kanwar who would give an overview of COL’s programmes. The eight Education Specialists would follow; each Education Specialist would give a two-minute overview of what had transpired in their respective initiatives, and what their proposed plan in the next TYP would be. // Sir John started the meeting with a brief PowerPoint presentation, which set the scene for Professor Kanwar’s programme review.
