Distance & Online Education
Graduate Education in Canada
As Canadian universities work to increase access to graduate education, many are adopting blended modes of delivery for courses and programs. This book provides a comprehensive overview of current practices and opportunities for blended learning success.
Engagement and Authenticity
Conrad and Openo insist that moving to new learning environments, specifically those online and at a distance, afford opportunities for educators to adopt only the best practices of traditional face-to-face assessment while exploring evaluation tools made available by a digital learning environment in the hopes of arriving at methods that capture the widest set of learner skills and attributes.
Program Design, Implementation, and Evaluation
Kumar and Dawson's program design is grounded in the theoretical and research foundations of online, adult, and doctoral education, curriculum design and community-building, implementation and evaluation. The authors, who draw on their experience of implementing a similar program at the University of Florida, not only share data collected from students and faculty members but also reflect on lessons learned working on the program in diverse educational contexts. An important guide for program leaders who wish to develop and sustain an online professional doctorate, An Online Doctorate for Researching Professionals will also be a valuable resource for higher education professionals seeking to include e-learning components in existing on-campus doctoral programs.
A one-stop knowledge resource, this book showcases the international work of research scholars and innovative distance education practitioners who use emerging interactive technologies for teaching and learning at a distance.
