Membership of ICDE is open to institutions, educational authorities and agencies, companies, and individuals. Associate membership is also available for not-for-profit membership organizations.
Membership brings access to a tremendous network of knowledge and expertise, and the opportunity to make use of this network both on your own initiative and through participation in ICDE events and projects.
ICDE can provide support and strategic advice to your institution during the planning of field seminars, study tours and academic exchange programmes, and invites members to take part in its own study tours. An open invitation is extended to members wishing to study the distance education systems in Norway and northern Europe.
Membership of ICDE also allows your institution to raise its profile internationally and provides a stage for the dissemination of information relating to your institution, events and research.
As an ICDE member, you benefit from a discount on the ICDE World Conference fee. You may also apply to host an ICDE International conference in order to attract leading figures from the world of open and distance education to your home country.
Rectors, Presidents, and Chief Executive Officers from ICDE member institutions are invited to attend the annual Standing Conference of Presidents (SCOP), a closed forum for peer-to-peer discussions.
Members receive all publications and materials issued in each period for which fees are fully paid.
