EDEN NAP profile

Position, Work experience

I work as Senior Partner in HCI Productions Ltd, a Finnish company specialized in learning and performance solutions. I have been involved in distance education and eLearning since the late 1980s in various national and international tasks, also e.g. at the Helsinki University of Technology, in SATURN - Europe┬┤s Open Learning Network, in Finnish eLearning Centre and also worked as a short-term expert for the World Bank.

I have led since 2004 the Finnish eLearning Quality Mark work for the Finnish eLearning Center. At the moment, one of my top priorities is within the Finnish framework of Centres of Excellence a project on the quality management of peer production in digital content provision.

In 2007-2009 I served as a member of Board of Directors of the European Foundation for Quality in E-learning (EFQUEL) and was also serving as Secretary General in 2007-2008.

Education and training, degres, academic qualifications

My Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts degree are from the University of Helsinki (http://www.helsinki.fi) - my major subject was folklore and cultural anthropology.

In the shift of 1980s and 1990s I made my MBA degree at the Helsinki University of Technology - nowadays known as the Aalto University (http://www.tkk.fi).

I used to work as Principal Lecturer at the Espoo-Vantaa Institute of Technology (nowadays known as Metropolia University of Applied Sciences).
