The Association for Distance Education and Independent Learning is a professional association whose goal is to provide professional development and opportunities for interaction among those interested in independent study. ADEIL is a one-person, one-vote organization* that furthers the cause and understanding of independent study and provides service to our membership. It encourages personal commitment, cooperation, and sharing. Our primary activity is an annual conference; we also provide opportunity for electronic and print communication among members.

*Members join as individuals; ADEIL does not offer institutional memberships.
