Distance education which provides important contribution to education systems is applied many fields successfully. Teacher training is another field in which distance education is used widely. Distance education is used for teacher's graduate education as much as teacher's preservice and inservice training at elementary and secondary education level. The main aim of this study is to introduce teacher training programs which have been made through distance education in Turkey between the years of 1986-2005 by Anadolu University Open Education Faculty. For this aim, five teacher education programs at undergraduate compensatory education and undergraduate level used for teacher training for elementary and secondary education were examined in terms of aim, content, teaching-learning process and evaluation. The study indicates that programmes are achieved for different purposes and education is given to big masses in quantity in the beginning. It is also concluded in the research that programmes begin at pre-undergraduate level then rise to undergraduate level and then are transformed into modern applications from classic distance education. (Contains 5 tables.).

Teaching And Learning At A Distance

Teaching and Learning at a Distance is written for introductory distance education courses for preservice or in- service teachers, and for training programs that discuss teaching distant learners or managing distance education systems. This text provides readers with the basic information needed to be knowledgeable distance educators and leaders of distance education programs. The teacher or trainer who uses this book will be able to distinguish between appropriate uses of distance education. In this text we take the following themes: The first theme is the definition of distance education. Before we started writing the first edition of Teaching and Learning at a Distance we carefully reviewed the literature to determine the definition that would be at the foundation of our writing. This definition is based on the work of Desmond Keegan, but is unique to this book. This definition of distance education has been adopted by the Association for Educational Communications and Technology and by the Encyclopedia Britannica. The second theme of the book was the importance of research to the development of the contents of the book. The best practices presented in Teaching and Learning at a Distance are validated by scientific evidence. Certainly there are “rules of thumb”, but we have always attempted to only include recommendations that can be supported by research. The third theme of Teaching and Learning at a Distance is derived from Richard Clark’s famous quote published in the Review of Educational Research that states that media are mere vehicles that do not directly influence achievement. Clark’s controversial work is discussed in the book, but is also fundamental to the book’s advocacy for distance education – in other words, we authors did not make the claim that education delivered at a distance was inherently better than other ways people learn. Distance delivered instruction is not a “magical” approach that makes learners achieve more. The fourth theme of the book is equivalency theory. Here we presented the concept that instruction should be provided to learners that is equivalent rather than identical to what might be delivered in a traditional environment. Equivalency theory helps the instructional designer approach the development of instruction for each learner without attempting to duplicate what happens in a face to face classroom. The final theme for Teaching and Learning at a Distance is the idea that the book should be comprehensive – that it should cover as much of the various ways instruction is made available to distant learners as is possible. It should be a single source of information about the field.

Distance education includes the use of correspondence courses, the work of open universities, and education in-school and out-of-school based on broadcasting by radio or television. It is defined as an educational process in which a significant proportion of the teaching is conducted by someone removed in space and/or time from the learner. Within Africa, it has been used for teacher training, and for primary, secondary and tertiary education. Many African countries have been offering in-service training to teachers using correspondence courses. In primary education, the most important application of distance-teaching techniques has been in interactive radio, where radio is used for direct classroom teaching. At both secondary and tertiary level, "equivalence" courses have been developed offering an alternative route to formal qualifications for students outside school or college. Cost data are presented on all these applications, showing a reduction in costs at all levels. It is argued that distance education's potential to increase access to education and reduce costs justifies further investment along with other strategies for education in Africa.

How can open and distance learning and information and communications technology (ICT) provide us with more - and better - teachers? Open and distance learning is increasingly used in teacher education in developing and developed countries. It has the potential to strengthen and expand the teaching profession of the twenty-first century and to help achieve the target of education for all by 2015. Teacher Education Through Open and Distance Learning examines the case for using open and distance learning and ICT to train our educators. It describes and analyses the ways in which these methods and technologies are used for: *initial teacher training and continuing professional development *training principals and school managers *training those who provide non-formal adult and community education *communities of practice and sharing of knowledge and ideas within the teaching profession It also discusses the policy-making, management, technology, costing, evaluation and quality assurance aspects of this work. The contributors are outstanding practitioners in the field. The first review in over a decade, Teacher Education Through Open and Distance Learning draws on wide-ranging and international experience to summarise the strengths and weaknesses of new approaches to the education of teachers. It offers invaluable guidance to policymakers, planners, headteachers and teachers.

This handbook discusses the use of distance education for teacher training and examines the case for and against distance teaching; its organization; the development, production, and distribution of distance-teaching materials; tutoring and counseling; and the monitoring and evaluation of finance and resources. Distance teaching is defined as the use of correspondence courses with radio and some face-to-face study. Alternative models for the administration of distance teaching are compared, and administrative functions are distinguished. The development of teaching materials through print or radio and planning for their production and distribution are examined. In discussing tutoring and counseling, distinctions are made between the functions of school and college staff, correspondence and radio tutors, and student advisers. Both the evaluation of the progress of individual students and formative assessment of a program are analyzed. Budgeting is discussed, and the factors affecting costs are compared with those of conventional education. Appendices include a 21-item bibliography and notes on the characteristics of educational media and language testing. (Author/LMM)

The second edition of this award-winning book continues the mission of its predecessor, to provide a comprehensive compendium of research in all aspects of distance education, arguably the most significant development in education over the past quarter century. While the book deals with education that uses technology, the focus is on teaching and learning and how its management can be facilitated through technology. This volume will be of interest to anyone engaged in distance education at either the K-12 or college level. It is also appropriate for corporate and government trainers and for administrators and policy makers in all these environments.
