EDEN NAP profile

Position, Work experience

I'm an Assistant Professor at Universidade Aberta (UAb), the Portuguese Open University, in the Department of Education and Distance Learning, where I started teaching in 1991. I'm also a Researcher at the University of Lisbon (Centre for Philosophy) since 2004.


From 2006 to 2009, I was Pro-rector for Innovation in Distance Learning at Universidade Aberta. In that capacity, I've had the opportunity to conceive and manage the implementation of the university's successful and speedy strategic transition process from a print-based distance learning institution to a fully online one.


From 2007 to 2009, I was also a member of the Academic and Administration Boards of Asia's International Open University (UAIA), and also of the Portuguese Rectors Council (CRUP) especialized committes on Scientific Research and Knowledge Transfer, and Evaluation, Quality and Innovation.


Presently, I'm also on the Scientific Board of several international journals on education and media (European Journal on Online and Distance Learning -Eurodl, Revista de Universidad y Sociedad del Conocimiento - RUSC, Revista de Enseñanza y Learning, Co-Learn, Formamente – International Research Journal on Digital Future  and Higher Education Teaching and Learning). I'm also a member of the e-ASEM network on e-learning and lifelong learning, as well as the Experts Board of the Horizon Report edition for Iberoamerica.

Education and training, degres, academic qualifications

I received my training in Philosophy at the University of Lisbon (PhD - 2003, MPhil - 1994) and in online education at the University of Turku (2004).
