The Native Learner and Distance Education: An Annotated Bibliography.
Confederation Coll. of Applied Arts and Technology, Thunder Bay (Ontario).
This annotated bibliography consists of 76 entries dated 1975 through 1988, describing publications in the area of distance education and the Native learner. The bibliography represents one phase of a project entitled "Native Priorities for Distance Education," with the goal being the participation of Native peoples in the planning and implementation of distance education for Native communities in Northwestern Ontario. The emphasis of the coverage is the cultural aspects in designing distance education programs for Native learners. The information is divided into four categories: (1) community involvement and self-determination; (2) learning styles and teaching strategies; (3) distance education and use of technology; and (4) existing programs. The entries include journal articles, workshop reports, organization reports, dissertations, books, and conference presentations. Each entry includes author, title, publisher, publication date and an annotation. The information is not considered exhaustive and it is intended that the development of this bibliography will be an on-going project. (LP)
