Edited by:


© 2004 | 576 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc

Published in Association with The Fielding Graduate Institute

From launching a student on the route to self-directed learning to using group processes, self-assessment, the life line experience, and developing a learning contract, this encyclopedia comprehensively covers all aspects of distributed learning. The overarching goal is to collect together in a single resource the best practices for adults engaged in continuing education at the graduate level, in corporate settings, in open university settings, and in similar learning environments.

Topics covered:

} administrative processes

} technical tools and supports

} policy, finance, and governance

} social and cultural perspectives

} student and faculty issues

} teaching and learning processes and technologies

Key Features:

} A-to-Z organization

} Reader's Guide groups entries by broad topic areas

} Comprehensive index

} Cross-references between and among entries

} Advisory Board of prominent experts

} Three appendices provide annotated listings of distributed and distance learning programs, select print and non-print resources, and conferences, each with web addresses.

Reference literature has been hard put to keep pace with its (distance learning) changes so the appearance of an Encyclopedia is most welcome. Recommended for academic and public libraries.

LIBRARY JOURNAL

"This volume will appeal to a wide array of readers, from novices to those already working in the field. Recommended for all collections."
