Visionary Leadership Forum 2017.jpg


Engaged and effective leadership within the educational sector is pivotal to the success of students, faculty and organisations.

Educational leaders must develop the skills to enable change, collaboration and manage challenges at an institutional, national and regional level to enable success for the learner and society as a whole.



ICDE facilitates a number of networks that support leaders in their mission to enhance delivery of educational services at an institutional, organisational, national and global level.

The ICDE community is compromised of leaders from institutions and organisations across 6 continents and ICDE facilitates this community of experts and leaders to collaborate and work together to bring accessible, quality education to all through online, open and distance learning.

Members of ICDE have the privilege to connect with a global network of experts across the globe.
