What are the main activities of the NAP Steering Committee?

The NAP department is a meeting place of EDEN individual members and the discussion forum of EDEN. The NAP activities are self-governed by its own elected body, the NAP Steering Committee (SC) and self-sustaining. EDEN individual members might initiate topics to discuss in the community.

The NAP activities are an important part of services EDEN provides to its members. The NAP Steering Committee should foster the NAP activities through initiating different activities, like webinars on relevant topics in the area of distance and e-learning.

If you are a member of the NAP SC you will always be informed about what happens in and around EDEN: The Chair of the NAP SC is invited to the Management Board meetings.

NAP SC members can count on the support of MB members as well as the Secretariat in their work: The Secretariat gives the technical background for virtual events: ensures the Zoom channel, uploads the supporting material before the meetings, organises the promotion and registration for the events, organises the award of open badges to the presenters, moderators and participants of the meetings.
