Major distance and open learning providers in the world have made significant progress towards the establishment of a “world distance and open learning university”. Moreover, donors and Non Governmental Organisations (NGOs) are gradually moving away from funding one institution or one country in favour of targeting regions. It is against this background that we are urging all SADC member states to join the Distance Education Association of Southern Africa (DEASA).

A record number of delegates participated in the 51st DEASA conference and AGM hosted by the Ministry of General Education and the University of Zambia in Lusaka on 9 to 12 November 2017.

The conference news letter is available.
