Flexible Higher Education
International Pioneers ReflecteBook - 2007
"This unique book analyzes the work of over forty pioneers who helped drive key late twentieth century changes in access to, and learning in, higher education, via distance education. It examines how they defined their challenges, made decisions, coped with traditionalist resistance, developed new teaching and learning models, used various technologies, felt the excitement of innovation, and, above all, respected adult learners' goals and contexts." "The book also assesses the relevance of that experience and skill to today's contexts. Seven international leaders in adult, distance and higher education assess the pioneers' reflections to glean the ideas of most relevance for contemporary teachers and administrators." --Book Jacket.
