Gunder, Angela; Shellgren, Madeline
Online Learning Consortium
In this two-part report, the authors share a pair of unique and interconnected case studies of digital learning change work in support of the advancement of the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals: (1) "Developing an International Leadership Institute on Global Coalition Building and Digital Learning Change Work," discusses the conception, design, and development of a global leadership academy that builds international partnerships to increase access to quality education across the globe; and (2) "Creating a Narrative Framework for Advancing Digital Learning Equity," presents the Online Learning Consortium's process for developing an interactive tool for capturing and sharing the stories of digital learning leaders and their work to address locally contextualized challenges related to online, blended, and digital learning. Both sections of the report detail how all seventeen of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) were leveraged beyond the application of the fourth SDG (quality education), using digital storytelling, rhetoric, metaphor, collaborative storytelling, and other narrative practices, to increase understanding, empathy, and impact across globally situated communities of practice. [This report was a contribution to the 3rd World Higher Education Conference organised by UNESCO on May 18-20, 2022. Jennifer Mathes and Abby McGuire contributed to this report.]
