  1. Foundations of SLS

  2. Definitions,History & Theories of Distance Education • What are the four components of DE? • Institutionally based • Separation of Teacher & Student • Interactive Telecommunications • Connecting learner, instructor & resources • Discuss the different “definitions” of DE identified by Keegan. Do they “fit” with the components identified above? • How doe Garrison & Shale expand the definitions?

  3. Theory & Distance Education • What is Theory? • Compare Wedemeyer and Moore. • What is the industrialization of teaching? • What is andragogy? Is it a theory of DE? • How does Perraton “fit” with the other theories? • How do Perraton’s synthesis of theory and Keegan’s theoretical framework compare? • How does synchronous technology affect Keegan’s position that DE is not possible?

  4. Fordism, Neo-Fordism & Post Fordism • Explain the three terms Fordism, Neo-Fordism & Post Fordism. • Give examples of each of these in the current DE environment.

  5. History of Distance Education • Correspondence Study • Electronic Communications • Alberta • Distance Teaching Universities • British Open University • Athabasca University

  6. Distance Education Theory, Methodology & Epistemology: A Pragmatic Paradigm • Discuss the philosophical difference between Saba & SSAZ? • What does Saba mean that America’s approach to DE is “pragmatic & atheoretical”? • How can he say this when he then presents two theoretical models (learner centered vs. organization and function of DE)? • How are theory and pragmatism related?

  7. Aptitude Treatment Interaction • What is aptitude treatment interaction? • How does ATI relate to DE?

  8. DE Dichotomies • Theory vs. Pragmatism • Learner Centered vs organizational • Asynchronous vs synchronous • Objectivist vs. constructivist • DE vs F2F

  9. Systems Theory • Von Bertalanffy Input Process Output Feedback

  10. Systems Theory and DE • What is transactional distance? • How does transactional distance “fit” with asynchronous DE? • How does transactional distance “fit” with synchronous DE? • How does transactional distance “fit” with a F2F instruction in a large lecture theatre?

  11. Media Will Never Influence Learning • Explain Clark’s major thesis. • What is Clark’s replaceability challenge? • Explain Clark’s perceived difference between instructional or training design technologies and delivery technology. • Can / should medium and method be seperated?
