        01:00 PM - 02:00 PM        (DHLA, coverage to be confirmed by UNTV) Play: Heard
Heard shines a spotlight on a single consultation meeting over an unnamed project which stand to affect the lives of citizens. Representatives from the World Bank, the government, a CSO, a contracting company, a Human Rights group and one citizen sit and talk. The dialogue is real. There is conflict and misunderstanding, and no theatrical resolution—it is what it is. Do the participants listen to each other? Who is right and who is wrong? Is a resolution possible? Each person who watches the play will have a different opinion. The play depicts the personal, sociological and cultural dynamics of development through the microcosm of one consultation meeting—has the power to mirror back how the attitudes, backgrounds, experiences and personalities of all ‘stakeholders’ concretely effect development dialogues and outcomes.

Will massive open online courses provide worldwide access to quality higher education, as advocates maintain? Or will MOOCs, as critics fear, foster Western academic dominance, fail to serve those most in need, and undermine local institutions?  These questions and more will be considered in a probing conversation featuring prominent global thought leaders offering a range of views on the pros and cons of MOOCs.
Organised by The Rockefeller Institute of Government of SUNY and the United Nations Academic Impact and sponsored by the Institute for International Education (IIE).
