Teacher Education Through Open and Distance Learning

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 21st century and to help achieve the target of education for all by 2015. This volume 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; and 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.
