Bridging the Distance: A Report on Four Distance Education Workshops Held February 1991 = La distance apprivoisee: Un rapport de quatre ateliers sur la formation a distance tenus en feview 19911.
McGreal, Rory; And Others
This report summarizes activities and recommendations from workshops in Northern Ontario, Canada which were designed to inform principals of the details of the distance education initiative and to examine problems involved in the delivery and reception of distance education courses at the secondary level. Separate workshops were organized for Native Americans, Francophones, northwest Anglophones, and northeast Anglophones. It was apparent from the Native conference that distance education accessibility for First Nations communities has yet to be achieved. The foremost problem in organizing courses for delivery to secondary schools, both Francophone and Anglophone, is the coordination of needs and requirements among the participating school boards. There was also a strong demand for an organizing center for course delivery. For each workshop, the report lists conference objectives, summarizes presentations, and lists recommendations resulting from working sessions. In addition, the report includes: (1) results of workshop evaluations; (2) lists of workshop participants; (3) tables of secondary school distance education equipment and locations; (4) information for course enhancement which entails purchase of equipment and materials; (5) a proposal form and budget form for course enhancement; and (6) a telephone reference of Contact North employees.
