Beyond the Text: Contemporary Writing on Distance Education.
Evans, Terry; King, Bruce
Based on materials originally prepared for a course being developed at an Australian university, this book examines critical issues in distance education and open learning. The book is organized in five parts. The first part locates distance education in relation to education and social science and provides a general introduction and orientation. The other four parts provide a broad critical social scientific approach, each with an introduction by one of the editors and two contributors' chapters. The following articles are included: "An Epistemological Orientation to Critical Reflection in Distance Education" (Terry Evans); "Disability and Distance Education in Australia" (Christopher Newell, Judy Walker); "Gender Issues in Distance Education--A Feminist Perspective" (Margaret Grace); "On the Possibility of Dialogue in Distance Education: A Dialogue" (Helen Modra); "Teaching Texts and Independent Learning" (Daryl Nation); "Distance Education in a Developing Context: Ghana" (Kwasi Ansu-Kyeremeh); "Distance Education and the Developing World: Colonisation, Collaboration and Control" (Richard Guy); "Critical Essay on Technology in Distance Education" (Michael Campion); "Towards a Critical Educational Technology in Distance Education" (David Harris); and "Endnote: Beyond the Text" (Terry Evans, Bruce King).
