Date: 21st to 24th August 2018
Venue: Africa Nazarene University, Ongata Rongai, Kenya
The Institute of Open and Distance Learning in Africa Nazarene University, Kenya, is planning to host a conference on Distance Education and Open Learning in Africa from 21st to 24th August 2018. The purpose of the 4 day conference is to provide academics and education practitioners from different academic and training institutions and the corporate sector with an opportunity to meet and exchange ideas on various aspects regarding policy, theory, ethics and practice of open learning and distance education in Africa. The possibility of establishing a national association for distance education and open learning in Kenya (Nadeolke) for the purpose of building and maintaining a community of learning and practice
will be explored. We hope to have members of the executive committee of the National Association for Distance Education and Open Learning in South Africa (www.nadeosa.org,za) lead the discussion on establishing national association for distance education and open learning in Kenya, with support and input from the Distance Education Association of Southern Africa (DEASA), the African Council for Distance Education (ACDE) and the Commonwealth of Learning (CoL).
