Director’s welcome

Bula & Hello,

I, as the Director of Pacific Centre for Flexible and Open Learning for Development (PACFOLD), welcome you to the PACFOLD online community – PACFOLD learn. I am optimistic that you will gain valuable information and feel confident in contributing and sharing information.

PACFOLD seeks participation of community of practitioners  on flexible and open learning that leads to development in the Pacific communities. This platform provides platform for network of networks at all levels – national, regional and global.

Open, Distance and Flexible Learning (ODFL) is not a choice in the Pacific but an instrumental medium to increase access to formal and non-formal learning using appropriate technologies. My life was transformed through ODFL from a classroom teacher to a Executive Director through qualifications made available on print mode; through advocacy, capacity, research and building a network of networks, PACFOLD is a timely enabler to enable transformation for others in the Pacific. My substantive post at University of the South Pacific (USP) is Executive Director, Pacific Technical and Further Education (Pacific TAFE). My passion and drive, however, are to lead PACFOLD.

I look forward  for constructive contribution  and engagement from you.

Best Wishes,

Hasmukh Lal
