Distance Teaching and Learning: A Case Study.
El-Meligi, M. Helmy
A description is given of a distance education program designed to up-grade and complete the education of teachers in Egypt, the majority of whom have not completed their education through the university level. Television and other audio-visual aids are used as communication media. Educational programs are televised daily to these teachers. Though educational technology has proved to be extremely useful, these advanced electronic equipment and developed audio-visual aids are not considered substitutes for the human teacher. Therefore, meetings wih university professors and lecturers in regional study centers for discussions on different subject matters are a part of the program. A model of self-training activities is included and conducted in different study centers located in critical geographic sites. After practicing the model activities, the teachers' initial passivity and indifference have changed to active participation, and they have become involved and highly interested in the activities. Evaluation of these activities shows the outcome of feedback and indicates changes in the teachers' role conception. (JD)
