  6. What is Open Learning? • Open learning is a teaching method . • Open learning is supposed to allow pupils self-determined, independent and interest-guided learning. • Also : Active Learning….Cooperative Learning….Distance Education….Open Education. Open Learning in Engineering - 2014

  7. What is Open Learning? • Distance education or distance learning is a field of education that focuses on teaching methods and technology with the aim of delivering teaching, often on an individual basis, to students who are not physically present in a traditional educational setting such as a classroom. • It has been described as "a process to create and provide access to learning when the source of information and the learners are separated bytime and distance, or both."

  12. Teesside University Open Learning in Engineering [TUOL] • Teesside University open learning in engineering (TUOL) is the world’s leading provider of high quality flexible education to the engineering industry. • For 25 years we have been creating high quality, stand alone, open learning materials. It is a realistic way to deliver necessary training and education to staff who are unable to attend conventional classroom based courses. So, if you work on an oil rig in the Caribbean or in pipeline construction in a desert, your professional development need not be interrupted – you can study at your own pace, effectively anywhere. Open Learning in Engineering - 2014

  13. Teesside University Open Learning in Engineering [TUOL] • More than 30,000 students worldwide have studied engineering and technology courses that we have designed and developed. And our portfolio is growing. We offer: • level 2 and 3 City & Guilds Certificates • Higher National Certificates and Higher National Diplomas at levels 4 and 5 Open Learning in Engineering - 2014
