Flexible Pedagogy, Flexible Practice: Notes from the Trenches of Distance Education
by E.J. Burge, C.C.l Gibson, T. Gibson
Publisher: AU Press 2011
Number of pages: 360
Flexibility has become a watchword in modern education, but its implementation is by no means a straightforward matter. Flexible Pedagogy, Flexible Practice sheds light on the often taken-for-granted assumptions that inform daily practice and examines the institutional dynamics that help and hinder efforts towards flexibility. The collection is international in scope, drawing on the experience of specialists in distance education from North America, the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand, South Africa, Singapore, and Japan.
