Hello from Valencia on the Mediterranean coast of Spain. Today begins the European Distance and E-learning Network conference with registration and opening message from the president of EDEN, Dr. Alan Tait from The Open University in the UK.

The conference venue is quite beautiful situated at NEXUS building at the Universidad Politechnica de Valencia. With over 400 delegates from 49 different countries, this conference will be an enlightening experience with sharing ideas on e-learning and open education. I am looking forward to discussing ideas with fellow colleagues and listening to experts from around the world.

You can find out more about EDEN by visiting their Web site and you can follow the plenary sessions via a Web cast. 

You can follow more of what happened at EDEN by reading the EDEN blog

Unfortunately my paper did not win the Best Research Paper of the conference, but as they say, it was an honour to be nominated. Good news is that the award went to a fellow Canadian.
