The EDEN Network of Academics and Professionals (NAP) supports networking of individual members of the Association and provides a highly effective meeting and communication forum.
It enjoys a functional autonomy, is co-ordinated by its own Steering Committee. The Steering Committee is elected by a ballot of NAP members. The Chair of the Steering Committee is traditionally an ex officio member of the EDEN Executive Committee.
The NAP Members Area on the web serves as an information exchange, and provides a functioning online directory and meeting place. It is password protected and can be accessed by members only.
EDEN Members can download the latest AGM Minutes by logging in to the Members Area.
As an acknowledgement of professional merit and scheme of recognition, the title of EDEN Fellow has been introduced for those NAP members who have demonstrated excellence in professional practice in the field of flexible and distance learning.
