Even before the pandemic forced schools to shift to distance learning until it is safe again to host face-to-face classes, numerous institutions have already pondered on and implemented, albeit gradually, BORDERLESS EDUCATION.
Yoni Ryan of the Queensland University of Technology (2000; 2001), as cited by Isagani Cruz in his 2014 Philstar article, defines borderless education as “a wide range of activities, from online training, off-shore campuses, technology-assisted teaching, and franchising of curricula. Since many of these activities emanate from the new providers of post-secondary education and programs, often for-profit institutions or commercial arms of non-profit universities, borderless education segues into ‘the business of education.’ That brings the activities of organisations supporting e-learning, whether vendors of learning management platforms or publishers of digital material, into our purview as well.”
Borderless education also leads its stakeholders to various pathways, ensuring that everybody, whatever their age, health status, nationality, ethnicity, religion, and socioeconomic standing, receives a quality education and equal opportunities to access it.
Borderless and Inclusive Education is one of the research components to be discussed on July 28-29, 2022 at MPC’s 1st International Conference on Innovations and Education (ICIE), via Zoom.
