The Chair seeks to create a co-ordinated, vibrant, inclusive and sustainable ODL research culture within the framework of the UNITWIN/UNESCO programmes. This shall entail co-supervision of postgraduate (master’s and doctoral) students with ODL practitioner partner institutions, and bilateral and multilateral collaborative research partnerships.
