CILT is presently hosting international experts in a two-day workshop focusing on digital education leadership. At this workshop Laura Czerniewicz, Cheryl Brown, Tabisa Mayisela and Cheng-Wen Huang of CILT are working with an advisory committee to consolidate the concept paper on ‘Digital Education Leadership’ commissioned by the Commonwealth of Learning (COL) as part of their Commonwealth Digital Education Leadership Training in Action (C-DELTA) programme.

The COL aims to promote a digital education environment in Commonwealth nations through engagement with teachers, educational institutions, civil society organisations and governments.

The purpose of the workshop is to finalise a Concept Paper and to plan a  curriculum framework for prospective digital education leaders. This framework will develop leaders who would demonstrate how to use ICTs effectively and influence others around them to use digital technology appropriately and effectively for learning (and earning) and support sustainable development.
The advisory committee to this programme comprises global experts in digital education, digital literacies and open education:
