A Review of the Literature on the Open Education Faculty (1982-1990).
This review of the literature begins with an overview of open universities and distance education around the world together with a brief review of the history of the Open Education Faculty (OEF) at Anadolu University in Turkey. It is noted that, in the beginning, OEF students were reached via printed materials, television courses, and academic counselling, with radio programs, video education centers, and later on, a newspaper. The annotated bibliography which makes up the major part of this study is then presented. It cites 95 reports on studies of the OEF from its establishment in 1982 through 1990. These studies include books, articles, master's and doctoral theses, and papers presented at seminars and national or international conferences. Entries are listed alphabetically by author, and titles are given in both Turkish and English with annotations in English. (Some studies originally conducted in English do not include Turkish titles.) Additional resources provided include a bibliography of the studies which cites only the authors and titles; a list of related printed materials, including issues of the Anadolu newspaper of the Open Education Faculty, general guides, and brochures; and subject and author indexes. (Items in the subject index are listed primarily in Turkish.) It is noted that a Turkish version of this study has also been published. (DB)
