Haugen, Harald; Ask, Bodil; Bratseth, Birgit O.; Engelsen, Knut Steinar; Lysne, Svein Ove; Tvedte, Jostein
This paper describes a revised teacher training program that includes Internet-based learning materials, thus demonstrating the dual mode system in which both off- and on-campus studies are integrated. The first section discusses the changing role of the teacher, including traditional teacher education and new challenges imposed by technology. The dual mode learning environment is covered in the second section, including the use of the Internet and the importance of student activity. The third section addresses the focus on practice, including a platform of knowledge and learning theories for PBL (Problem Based Learning) and CSCL (Computer Supported Collaborative Learning). Preparing teachers for open and flexible learning is covered in the fourth section, including introducing ODL (Open and Distance Learning) in teacher education; the PiOL (Pedagogy in Open Learning) online course; and a basic course on "Learning-to-Learn through ICT" (Information and Communication Technology). Resources on the Internet are summarized in the last section. (MES)
