Every year, the AAOU Annual Conference is hosted in turn by a full-member institution. We would like to invite your institution (if it is a full member) to consider submitting a proposal to host the 33rd AAOU Annual Conference in 2019. The Conference is a stimulating forum for all those associated with open and distance learning (ODL) in Asia, and is a focal point for updating everyone on the issues, ideas and developments in the field of ODL in the region. It is also an international platform for the critical exchange of knowledge and expertise among ODL academics, researchers and practitioners. The ‘Guidelines for Hosting the AAOU Annual Conference’ are available here. If your institution is interested in hosting this important event, kindly submit a proposal at email@example.com by 30 June 2017.
