A Distance Education How-To Manual: Recommendations from the Field.
Parker, Angie
This paper discusses three issues facing institutions that produce distance instruction. The first section covers the retraining of students; the new cohort of distance students must be trained to be comfortable with technology, with mediated interaction, and with the new paradigm of student-centered learning. The retraining of faculty is addressed in the second section; faculty must be comfortable with student-centered learning and taught to redesign the syllabus, use the technologies being employed, and integrate interaction into the course content. The last section discusses redesign of the course content, including rethinking the content, viewing the learners in a new light, and including opportunities for interaction, group work, and dialogue. The instructor's evolving role during the course of the class is also discussed. (DLS)
