Keynote Presentation: Sub-Theme 3: Research In Open and Flexible Distance Learning, SNDT Women’s University, Mumbai, India, India-Canada International Conference on Open and Flexible Distance Learning, 20 - 22 February 2013 by Sanjaya Mishra, Director, Commonwealth Educational Media Centre for Asia New Delhi // Distance Education is very popular in India as reflected in the number of Open Universities and dual mode distance teaching institutions in the country. However, research in the field of distance education as a discipline is only a recent phenomenon. The Indian Journal of Open Learning (IJOL) published since 1992 is one of the oldest and most significant research dissemination vehicles for Indian distance education researchers. However, publications by Indian researchers in other journals in the field are very limited. Based on the authors experience as researcher, editor and reviewer of research in distance education, in India and elsewhere, the paper explores issues related to why Indian distance education research has not been able to grow in the last 50 years. What efforts are being made to conduct research and development in this area of study that affects the educational life of over 6 million learners in the school and higher education sector? What measures are needed to improve the standards of research in terms of quality and quantity? It presents a set of generic guidelines for researchers to reflect and consider.
