Transition from Learner to Life Long Learner

  1. 1. Commonwealth Educational Media Centre for Asia Transition from Learner to Life Long Learner Sanjaya Mishra
  2. 2. Rare Events  For teachers in the dept, this is regular; for students, it is annual; for me it’s rare  Thanks to all of you…  Rare events are characterized by their uncertainty, and randomness; therefore, positive rare events should be cherished
  3. 3. What should I say?  This is a rare event for me, and my presence should be useful  You should take-away something to remember  I did some research and thinking to say what I want to say
  4. 4. Who is a Learner? A Learner is one who has the following five qualities:  Relentless efforts  Focus on target  Controlled sleeping  Only required eating  Reduced emotional attachments
  5. 5. Today’s world need Life Long Learners  Inquisitiveness to learn anytime, anywhere, from any source(ability to ask questions, and reflect on self)  Media and information literacy skills (not accepting information on its face-value, and having a critical approach)  Positive approach towards life and learning (increasing the power of goodness, and reducing evil)  Commitment to self, service, and society (love yourself, but consider others while serving)  Continuous improvement (perfection is only a word in the dictionary)
  6. 6. Asymmetry in Distribution of Knowledge and Education  Not everyone is lucky to study at University of Delhi  It is utopian to think that asymmetry in knowledge production and distribution can be overcome easily  But, certainly we can reduce that asymmetry by contributing towards Knowledge Commons
  7. 7. Who Owns Knowledge?  Knowledge is collective human intelligence  Past knowledge is essential to create new knowledge  Society created Copyrights, Patents and Trade Marks to protect individual’s economic rights over their creation  Printing press helped commodification of knowledge  It increased access to knowledge, but also created knowledge haves and have nots
  8. 8. Towards Knowledge Commons  Open Access  Open Educational Resources  Open Data  Other Openness initiatives…
