a discussion about eLearning

Learning Globally - Perspectives From Outside the United States
Alison Blair, Australian Catholic University
Lorenzo Cantoni, University of Lugano (Switzerland)

We are all living and learning in a "flatter" world in which learning must be delivered globally and with a broader base of content. Yet our individual styles, cultures, needs and audience preferences also come into play. Join us to discuss the views and experiences of some of our colleagues living and practicing outside the United States.
• What are the unique characteristics of learning and learning innovation in various regions of the world?
• What are the influences of early education techniques and governmental roles in learning/training or access to resources?
• How do organizations best create learning programs that "work" throughout the world?
