Distance learning is now more prevalent in the developing world than ever before. This book reconsiders the suitability and success of established modes of distance learning for current contexts in the developing world. It examines what adaptations are necessary to suit shifting needs including: the move from elite to mass higher education increased emphasis on knowledge base economies greater demand for lifelong learning and professional development the effects of technical and societal changes demand for post-secondary education. Drawing upon research into students' conceptions of, and approaches to learning, this critical analysis of the state of open and flexible learning examines the characteristics, needs and learning approaches of students, considering whether or not current provision is successful, what changes are necessary, and, crucially, how student retention can be improved.

Blended learning has gained significant attention recently by educational leaders, practitioners, and researchers. i²Flex, a variation of blended learning, is based on the premise that certain non-interactive teaching activities, such as lecturing, can take place by students without teachers’ direct involvement. Classroom time can then be used for educational activities that fully exploit teacher-student and student-student interactions, allowing for meaningful personalized feedback and scaffolding on demand. Revolutionizing K-12 Blended Learning through the i²Flex Classroom Model presents a well-rounded discussion on the i²Flex model, highlighting methods for K-12 course design, delivery, and evaluation in addition to teacher performance assessment in a blended i²Flex environment. Emphasizing new methods for improving the classroom and learning experience in addition to preparing students for higher education and careers, this publication is an essential reference source for pre-service and in-service teachers, researchers, administrators, and educational technology developers.

How teachers might best be prepared to work in schools with an increasingly diverse pupil population is of concern to educational academics, professionals and governments around the world. Changes that have taken place in legislation and practice often fail to taken into account how practitioners can ensure that all children and young people are able to achieve. The focus of this international text is on innovative practices for preparing teachers to work in inclusive classrooms and schools. Drawing on both pre and in-service training methods, the expert contributors to this book follow three major themes: social and political challenges regarding teacher education – providing an historical perspective on the training of teachers, tensions in preparing teachers for inclusion, cultural issues, the relationship between educational funding and practices and collaborative measures to support a whole school approach innovative approaches in pre-service teacher preparation – discussing a range of innovative models and approaches used in pre-service teacher education courses engaging professional development for inservice teachers – reviewing a range of approaches employed to engage working teachers and help them establish curricula and pedagogy that meets the needs of all students in their classes. Each chapter will include a list of proposed learning outcomes, a theoretical or conceptual framework to help readers develop the proposed innovation, an overview of recent research, discussion of the research data available and a discussion of the international implications and challenges, summarising in suggestions for a positive way forward. Teacher Education for Inclusion: Changing Paradigms and Innovative Approaches is essential reading for practising teacher educators, school leaders, university lecturers in education and post graduate students.

How can novice e-learning researchers and postgraduate learners develop rigorous plans to study the effectiveness of technology-enhanced learning environments? How can practitioners gather and portray evidence of the impact of e-learning? How can the average educator who teaches online, without experience in evaluating emerging technologies, build on what is successful and modify what is not? By unpacking the e-learning lifecycle and focusing on learning, not technology, Evaluating e-Learning attempts to resolve some of the complexity inherent in evaluating the effectiveness of e-learning. The book presents practical advice in the form of an evaluation framework and a scaffolded approach to an e-learning research study, using divide-and-conquer techniques to reduce complexity in both design and delivery. It adapts and builds on familiar research methodology to offer a robust and accessible approach that can ensure effective evaluation of a wide range of innovative initiatives, including those covered in other books in the Connecting with e-Learning series. Readers will find this jargon-free guide is a must-have resource that provides the proper tools for evaluating e-learning practices with ease.

The Renaissance Engineer of Tomorrow

"On the threshold of the 3rd Millennium, there can be no doubt about the fact that advances & progress of modern society are 'Technology driven'. There is still an ever increasing demand for Engineers at many different levels. Nonetheless, the skills and attitudes required of them are constantly changing, given that they must match developments which take place at an ever increasing rate. Hence, Engineering educators and, to greater extent, all stake-holders in the world of scientific and technological training are looking forward to the model of a more flexible, inter-disciplinary-shaped and innovation oriented kind of Engineers, perhaps an 'Artist-Engineer'. Is the ideal model - what we refer to as 'The Renaissance Engineer of Tomorrow' - a suitable one for the today times? Does such a model exist at all and, if yes, does it really satisfy the needs of our society? The 30th Sefi Annual Conference is a forum which is open for the development of such a discussion amongst scientists, educators, professionals, industrialists, students and all those involved and/or interested in the debate. Primarily, its purpose is to better identify and re-shape our concept of the ideal Engineer as envisaged for the future (no matter how we call such model!). Such a concept involves the ability to manage interaction between the many different branches of scientific and technical knowledge, as well as the skills associated with the adaptability and flexibility to handle tasks in a truly innovative manner, coupled with the positive attitude of life-long learning, ethical awareness and respect in our approach to a sustainable and socially-committed development, etc. All the above issues clearly define the profile of a graduate, far beyond the limited interpretation of the Anglo-Saxon word 'Engineer', i.e. challenging himself to change his/her perception of his/her role in the design process, as one moves beyond the simple act of making decisions based on codes and calculations. All this requires a multi-cultural education enriched through mobility during one's period of study, a marked team-work attitude in an international environment, the acceptance of challenging competitiveness in terms of ideas and improved efficiency of both processes and products: how does one go about developing all these graduate-skills through a simple Engineering degree? And how to solve the evident contradiction between the aspiration to educate an 'Artist Engineer' (necessarily, an elitary group) and the need of delivering a suitable technical education to the many young people who are requested in engineering, such to allow them to work and correctly and safely 'produce' for the society? More than 120 contributions responded to SEFIrenze 2002 call for papers form 30 different countries, almost all over the world. Their presence highlights the interest that the evocative issue of the 'Renaissance Engineer of Tomorrow' has drawn: everyone is dreaming something, figuring out his/her own idea of the task and handbut, perhaps, no single individual can really define, what it is exactly! Let us, therefore, dream of our future Engineers as people who will work with respect and awareness of different traditions and heritage. Let us envisage them as 'human bridges across different cultures and regions', linking people all over the world by means of science and technology. In this way, we can draw inspiration from our glorious Roman past, which teaches us that the Highest Authority, the Pontiff, took his privileged title from Pontifex Maximus, the ancient latin 'Pontesfacere', i.e., the Bridge maker!" (Claudio Borri).

The second edition of E-Learning in the 21st Century provides a coherent, comprehensive, and empirically-based framework for understanding e-learning in higher education. Garrison draws on his decades of experience and extensive research in the field to explore the technological, pedagogical, and organizational implications of e-learning. Most importantly, he provides practical models that educators can use to realize the full potential of e-learning. This book is unique in that it focuses less on the long list of ever-evolving technologies and more on the search for an understanding of these technologies from an educational perspective. The second edition has been fully revised and updated throughout and includes discussions of social media and mobile learning applications as well as other emerging technologies in today’s classrooms. This book is an invaluable resource for courses on e-learning in higher education as well as for researchers, practitioners and senior administrators looking for guidance on how to successfully adopt e-learning in their institutions.
