Pre-CHOGM Foreign Ministers’ Meeting
Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting, Port of Spain, Trinidad, 25 November 2009, Address by Sir John Daniel, Commonwealth of Learning // I am most grateful to our distinguished Board Chair, the Honourable Burchell Whiteman, for introducing this brief presentation of highlights of the work of the Commonwealth of Learning. We are extremely fortunate to have His Excellency Burchell Whiteman as our Board Chair. COL’s focus is learning – he served for many years as Minister of Education in Jamaica. COL is an intergovernmental organisation of the Commonwealth – as High Commissioner in London he is thoroughly familiar with the operation of intergovernmental bodies. // Heads of Government created the Commonwealth of Learning 11 CHOGMs ago when they met in Vancouver in 1987. They established COL in the belief that countries needed help in using information and communications technologies to advance education, training and learning. That is COL’s mission.
