In a world characterized by rapid social, technological, and economic change, lifelong learners will be most successful. Learning is becoming more informal and independent. Self-directed learners need tools and platforms to help identify sources of knowledge and keep track of what they've learned.
Self-directed learners need tools and platforms that empower them to make use of this deep knowledge and facilitate learning at their own pace. Finding the best sources of knowledge can still be a challenge. But the world is changing too quickly to depend on others to define our learning journey. We need to take back control and be self-directed lifelong learners. It is in this context that we discuss, "Role of Educators in Fostering Gender Diversity and Inclusion" at the 9th OELF.
