Latchem, Colin, Ed.; Lockwood, Fred, Ed.
This book draws together the experiences, insights, and findings of some of the world's leading staff developers in open and flexible education. It is designed to provide an overview of the trends, influences and events which are shaping the work of these professionals, and the policy changes, processes and outcomes they are helping to bring about in this expanding field. Contributors offer frameworks, strategies, and practical advice for the organization and implementation of staff development in various educational settings, open applications, and cultural contexts around the world. Part 1: "Staff Development in Context," looks at the changing environment within which various levels and forms of staff development are needed. Part 2: "Staff Development in the Organisation," looks at ways in which staff development has been introduced into, and organized within, various distance and dual-mode institutions around the globe. Part 3: "Staff Development in Action," draws upon the experience of practitioners in regard to specific open, flexible and technology-based projects. (Contains references and an index.) (Author/AEF)
