Are you prepared to teach at a distance or manage distance education systems? The fourth edition of Teaching and Learning at a Distance: Foundations of Distance Education provides you with the basics you need to become a knowledgeable distance educator including: • Theory and research that inform distance learning (Part I), • Practical skills and knowledge needed to function immediately in a distance learning environment (Part II), • And managerial and administrative issues that arise in the distance learning environment (Part III). Teaching and Learning at a Distance is unique in its broad coverage of the various technologies that can be used for the delivery of distance education from correspondence study to online, internet-based learning. Current users of this text will recognize the organization of the table of contents has not changed but will be pleased to see the information reflects current thought and accepted practices in distance education, including an increased emphasis on internet-based distance education.
