Learning the New Way: Giving and Taking Instruction by Telecommunications.
Johnson, Marilyn Kay; Amundsen, Cheryl
A graduate special education teacher training program delivered via telecommunication instruction helped meet training needs in rural Alaska. Teachers in four areas were identified and their needs ascertained. The project promoted a flexible class design yet incorporated 7 of 10 courses required for special education certification. The distance delivery model incorporated interaction with faculty, audioconferencing, and taped classes followed by collect phone calls to the coordinator. Student grading and test materials were identical to on campus student work. Seven teachers successfully completed requirements for certification, with additional coursework taken by 24 others. (CL)
