NADEOSA 10th Anniversary Conference Formal Evaluation Report
South African Journal of Higher Education, v21 n6 p783-804 2007
NADEOSA held its 10th anniversary conference during August 2006 on the theme "Celebrating 10 years of NADEOSA. Exploring the role of ICTs in addressing educational needs: Identifying the myths and miracles." The conference evaluation strategy consisted of a number of consciously planned processes, a dialogical and reflective account which had been built into the conference process, the administration of a formal structured questionnaire, appended as Annexure A, and a facilitated summative session at the end of the event by the Open and Distance Learning Association of Australia (ODLAA) President. The underpinning methodology for these procedures was essentially informed by the considerations and analyses of Burck (2005). NADEOSA traditionally undertakes formal evaluations of the biennial conference to inform future planning. This time round, given the additional contractual obligations to the sponsors, Open Society of Southern Africa (OSISA) and AusAid, the conference planning team tried to ensure that additional responses were elicited to account for the keynote inputs, the specialist Open Education Resource (OER) inputs from Melissa Hagemann and Leslie Chan, and the designated rapporteur roles of Anne Foster (ODLAA President) and Dr. Som Naidu. This article reports the findings from the questionnaire, and the key outcomes of the formal closing session. (Contains 6 graphs.)
