Multiple Perceptions and Perspectives: Faculty/Students' Responses to Distance Learning.
Rhodes, Carole S.
This paper describes the implementation of a graduate preservice teacher education course, entitled "Language and Meaning," offered via an interactive two-way audio and video delivery system in which participants on two campuses of Pace University (Westchester and New York City) were able to view each other. An interactive World Wide Web site was also set up to facilitate communication among the students. Except for one student, all reported positive feelings about having been involved in a distance learning situation, though more than two-thirds of the students did not feel that it was something that they would like to use in their teaching. Analysis of the formative and summative data gathered from the participants revealed key themes and issues, including: the need for interaction among students; the need for student-teacher interaction; the impact of interactive Web sites in education; and the role of reflection on one's learning.
