Summary : Teaching and Learning at a Distance is written for introductory distance education courses for preservice or inservice teachers, and for training programs that discuss teaching distant learners or managing distance education systems. This text provides readers with the basic information needed to be knowledgeable distance educators and leaders of distance education programs. The teacher or trainer who uses this book will be able to distinguish between appropriate uses of distance education. In this text we take the following themes: The first theme is the definition of distance education. Before we started writing the first edition of Teaching and Learning at a Distance we carefully reviewed the literature to determine the definition that would be at the foundation of our writing. This definition is based on the work of Desmond Keegan, but is unique to this book. This definition of distance education has been adopted by the Association for Educational Communications and Technology and by the Encyclopedia Britannica. The second theme of the book was the importance of research to the development of the contents of the book. The best practices presented in Teaching and Learning at a Distance are validated by scientific evidence. Certainly there are “rules of thumb”, but we have always attempted to only include recommendations that can be supported by research. The third theme of Teaching and Learning at a distance is derived from Richard Clark’s famous quote published in the Review of Educational Research that states that media are mere vehicles that do not directly influence achievement. Clark’s controversial work is discussed in the book, but is also fundamental to the book’s advocacy for distance education – in other words, we authors did not make the claim that education delivered at a distance was inherently better than other ways people learn. Distance delivered instruction is not a “magical” approach that makes learners achieve more. The fourth theme of the book is equivalency theory. Here we presented the concept that instruction should be provided to learners that is equivalent rather than identical to what might be delivered in a traditional environment. Equivalency theory helps the instructional designer approach the development of instruction for each learner without attempting to duplicate what happens in a face to face classroom. The final theme for Teaching and Learning at a Distance is the idea that the book should be comprehensive – that it should cover as much of the various ways instruction is made available to distant learners as is possible. It should be a single source of information about the field.

Summary : Create strong and effectives PLCs plus—and that plus is YOU What makes a powerful and results-driven Professional Learning Community (PLC)? The answer is PLC plus— “plus” being the vital role teachers play in teaching and learning. Grounded in four cross-cutting themes—equity, high expectations, efficacy, and facilitation from discussion to action—the PLC+ framework supports educators in questioning practices, not just outcomes. It broadens the focus on student learning to encompass educational equity and teaching efficacy, and, in doing so, it leads educators to plan and implement PLCs that maximize individual expertise while harnessing the power of collaborative efficacy.

Summary : Education is one of the most important complement for people from the beginning of humanity. With the globalizing and fasten world, Distance Learning has gain an increasing importance. Especially, information technologies increase the spread and importance of the distance learning systems. Institutions and universities have started using distance learning systems day by day to reach the potential students from all over the world. Distance learning systems also decrease the costs of both institutions and students with effective learning way. Distance learning systems principally have four main supplements; cost, technology, education and distance learning related supplements. Due to its structure, the most important supplement of distance learning systems is technology–based components which contains various and complicated details. Most of these details looks totally technical but they are more important actually, because of their implementation to education, and connection with the people using the system. The main motivation of this book is to find out the most important components of distance learning systems in Turkey and prioritize them to lead the distance learning systems more effective and better, both for the students and for the investors. knowledge Within the current literature, none of the studies analyzed all components and prioritize them for both Turkey and in general, especially, educational components and technological components together. With the help of the advanced internet and digital technology, this is a challenging subject for the distance learning systems in today’s world. Educational institutions cannot promote their distance learning programs only with their instructors or course contents anymore like decades ago when the technology is much worse than now. Classical promotion materials do not take attention of the new generation who are digital natives. Because, they have already known how to access something or use technology, at least more than digital immigrants. Especially with the accessible technology and accessible reputed education contents with this technology all around the world, we should observe the importance of education and distance learning components together with technology components. In today’s World, if students want to access a distance learning system, they need only a computer and an internet access, excluding course cost. So, students can access to any distance learning system from all around the world easily. This situation is also valid for distance learning institutions. Similarly, this is valid for distance learning institutions. They can hire anybody from all around the world without bringing them to the institution with a perfect information technologies infrastructure. Investors of distance learning systems and institutions in Turkey should invest in and improve distance learning systems according to the importance of all components of distance learning systems together to get ahead of the world.
