EURODL Special Issue: Best of EDENRW8

We are pleased to announce the Special Issue of the European Journal of Open, Distance and E-learning – EURODL entitled “Best of EDENRW8” which collects the enhanced versions of the final candidate and winner research papers of the Best Research Paper Award 2014 (EDEN 8th Research Workshop, in Oxford).

The theme and scope of EDENRW8 reflected the current challenges facing researchers and the intersection of their work with ‘doing better things’ for key stakeholders. EDENRW8 was very focussed on you the researcher and what you can learn from and with your peers.  It took place in an intimate setting where researchers including postgraduate students could share research, connect with peers and have adequate time to discuss the challenges of their work. EDENRW8 was suitable for researchers and postgraduate students and particularly those wishing to actively connect with peers and debate Challenges for research into Open & Distance Learning: Doing Things Better: Doing Better Things.

Antonio Teixeira EDEN President invited EDENRW8 rapporteur Tony Bates to share his perspective on the discussion trends and conclusions of the remarkable event: A Report on the State of Art of European Research into Open and Distance Learning
