Future directions for open learning : a report based on an invitational conference on open learning programs by Ronald Gross( Book )

3 editions published between 1979 and 1980 in English and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The expansion of higher education in the United States has resulted in a variety of outreach programs to bring postsecondary education off the campus and into the community. New systems and programs of nontraditional study have emerged. Issues of current concern in open learning include: quality and effectiveness, outreach and access, research and evaluation, economics (costs, benefits, productivity, and obtaining support), implications of emerging technology, public policy, and cooperation and collaboration. The trend toward lifelong learning brings with it new possibilities for educational technology and the mass media, as well as a challenge to postsecondary educators. It is noted that in the United States citizens get much of their information from the mass media, and that harnessing this potential for learning is the great challenge for education in the near future. The experiences of six individuals with open learning programs are highlighted throughout. A list of references is included. Appended are basic data on seven participating projects (the Appalachian Education Satellite Program and Community Service Network, Coastline Community College, Dallas County Community College District, Empire State College, Miami-Dade Community College, Open College, the University of California at San Diego, and the University of Mid-America), a list of factors that help or impede learning projects, and an executive summary of the joint conference on research needs in adult learning in March 1979.
