Conferences and Workshops
Nadeosa hosts an annual distance education conference. We also host smaller workshops providing our members an opportunity to engage on matters of mutual interest or concern. In other cases our workshops aim to introduce new concepts or technologies related to distance education.
Over the years NADEOSA has built-up strong networks of people involved in distance education in South Africa, the rest of Africa and elsewhere in the world.Our members have engaged extensively with regional associations such as Deasa and international distance education organisations such as the Commonwealth of Learning, International Council for Distance Education, European Distance Education Network, Open and Distance Learning Association of Australia. The network has been further strengthened through ongoing interaction with educational institutions providing both distance education and other flexible learning methods.
NADEOSA provides members with a regular information service.The following services are available to members:
- Daily education current awareness service: This news article service has a focus on distance education in Africa and elsewhere in the world, South African education policy and related information, use of technology in education and education technology applications.
- Document service: This service covers most of the subjects above, but the resources are more substantial than press articles.
- Conference listing: A conference listing by date of distance education conferences around the world and also more general educational conferences taking place in South Africa.
- Journal abstract service: Abstracts from educational journals relevant to the NADEOSA community.
This code of ethics designed and adopted by the NADEOSA member council is designed to encourage membership by providing a guide to the values of the organization and to enable members to become part of a positive culture of Distance Education in South Africa.
As a member of the National Association of Distance Education and Open Learning in South Africa, we undertake to promote access to and success in lifelong education and training of good quality. We seek to put learners first, recognizing and building on their knowledge and experiences, and responding to their needs. We will support processes and systems to increase access, mobility and quality in the national system in order to provide an increasing range of learning possibilities, offering learners greater flexibility in choosing what, where, how and at what pace they learn.

Promote and enhance quality in distance education and in particular seek to align our programmes with the Nadeosa criteria;
Work collaboratively with organizations and individuals involved or interested in distance education methods and/or open learning principles in South Africa;
Ensure that we understand and apply distance education methods and open learning principles as policy makers, practitioners and for our learners;
Evaluate all aspects our programmes and improve them in line with these findings;
Support activities to develop adequate policy (including financial support) for distance education;
