Contribute to the research and development necessary to support the final conceptualization and planning for a potential graduate Institute on Disability and Public Policy (IDPP) for the ASEAN Region.
Four key areas were identified to support the short-term planning of the IDPP (18 December 2009):
COTELCO (The Center for Research on Collaboratories and Technology Enhanced Learning Communities) conducted research and development on the first three areas, and APCD (Asia-Pacific Development Center on Disability) in Bangkok, Thailand led the fourth area. To learn more about the project components COTELCO researched, please browse the links below.
Determine the legal entity and accreditation procedures for the creation of the IDPP for the ASEAN region
To determine the best legal entity and procedures to ensure the establishment and the accreditation of the IDPP
The IDPP must have an organizational structure that reflects its unique physical and virtual presence in the ASEAN region, and it needs an appropriate cyberinfrastructure to administer the institute and deliver asynchronous and synchronous content.
To identify a recommended organizational structure and recommended activities for the IDPP, along with a collection of social practices and accessible technologies to support the administrative operations of the institute and to deliver content.
The IDPP has an opportunity to develop a novel and innovative curriculum, not limited by physical constraints and geographic location of knowledge resources. What curriculum will take full advantage of the virtual and physical nature of the IDPP?
To develop a model curriculum for the ASEAN Masters Program on Disability and Public Policy using both a deductive (top down, based on lead programs) and inductive (bottom-up, “blank slate”) approach, and to consider a plan for the the face-to-face and distributed implementation.
