On The Threshold of a New Year: Time to reflect and look forward

December 24, 2014 by Antonio Moreira Teixeira   Comments (0)


The year of 2014 was undoubtedly a very good and significant one for the open, distance and e-learning community both in Europe and across the world. This was also a very successful and important year for EDEN. As open and digital education provision becomes mainstream across sectors and our professional field experiences a dramatic expansion, EDEN has managed to anticipate this development and adjust to the changing environment in the best way. Our position as Europe's largest association and professional network in the field gives us the responsibility to help the professional community of educators who are challenged by new demands. We are indeed expected to play a critical role in such a special context and we are responding with conviction, dynamism and sense of mission.

Next year will witness an intensification of this effort. The European open, distance and e-learning community is scaling up and so is EDEN. As a result, in 2015 we will continue to widen our outreach, increasing the number and diversity of our events, reaching new target groups, enlarging our portfolio of services and introducing innovative features. Be prepared for a number of exciting surprises coming from EDEN in 2015!

Meanwhile, on my behalf and of all the EDEN staff, let me wish you a happy holiday season and a great New Year of 2015!
