EDEN fellow award


I was absolutely delighted to be awarded an EDEN fellowship at the annual conference in Oslo last week. It was a tad embarrassing though as I had left the conference to go back to my hotel after a long day of meetings, and so missed being given the award, but luckily caught up with Morton (the then president) the next day to have a picture taken. I have been going to the EDEN annual conference since 2007 when it was held in Naples. I was invited to give a keynote by the then president Alan Tait. I have also been to some of the research workshops, which are also excellent. EDEN is a great community, as Morten says very much a family, so it was great to catch up with people in Oslo. The certificate says:

Who has demonstrated excellent in professional practice of open, distance and e-learning and provided valuable support to the evolution and progress of EDEN.

I just hope I can live up to the honour, and plan to continue to promote and support EDEN in the coming years.
