Integrating Computer Technologies in Distance Learning as Part of Teacher Preparation and Inservice: Guidelines for Success.
Cochenour, John J.; Reynolds, Carl
This paper introduces guidelines that can contribute to the successful delivery of distance instruction to teachers using a variety of delivery technologies. These guidelines have evolved from extensive experience in teaching and administration of distance-delivered courses, student evaluations, research studies conducted upon previous courses, and from the literature. The guidelines are organized under the following categories: (1) course design; (2) general delivery strategies, including preplanning group sessions, promoting interaction, speaking strategies, facilitating discussion, and questioning techniques; (3) computer technology strategies for delivery; (4) student and administrative support considerations; and (5) evaluation. Within each category, the guidelines are offered as examples of techniques intended to make a distance delivery experience more successful. (AEF)
