Out Of Print... Now the definitive guide to open learning, this book has been designed to help teachers, trainers and managers adopt or develop open and distance learning methods in their work. Less a 'how-to-do' book than a 'what-might-be-worth-doing' one, it aims to introduce and analyse the subject and to encourge the critical reflection that leads to increased confidence and competence. Drawing on 30 years' experience in the field, the author presents a thoroughgoing and authoritative survey of all that is most useful in this wide-ranging and fast-growing sector. Divided into nine units, the book covers all aspects of the open and distance learning spectrum, from definition, through costs, media, support and evaluation, to benefits and implementation. Each of these units has the same underlying structure,comprising: introduction and objectives overview and analysis suggested follow-up activities points for reflection. Exploring Open and Distance Learning, written by an acknowledged leader in the field, will provide practitioners with the stimulus and structure to keep up with-and perhaps ahead of-developments in this innovative and exciting area. Already the basis of an Open University course, it is equally well suited to individual users and to professional students on other courses.
