Ulrich Bernath Chief Editor

The EDEN Executive Committee in 2014 assigned Dr. Ulrich Bernath as Chief Editor of the European Journal of Open, Distance and E-Learning – EURODL. Dr Bernath gave the following insight to his vision for EURODL:

"EURODL is one of the leading learned journals in the world and provides publishing space for scholarly works in the thematic areas of distance education, open, flexible, online, technology-enhanced, and e-learning. It is outstanding in practicing open access policies. It is my duty to steer the editorial process towards highest possible quality levels and recognition in the respective scientific community." 

Dr. Bernath is Chair of the "Foundation for Research in Open and Distance Learning", Senior Fellow of EDEN. He has been working for the journal as Acting Chief Editor since June 2013. You can read the short interview given on the occasion of his assignment here.
