Key Issues in e-Learning Research and Practice



Key Issues in e-Learning Research and Practice by Norbert Pachler, Caroline Daly

Enables readers to understand the key issues underpinning e-learning with a view to enabling them to use it effectively in their professional practice. This book offers education practitioners insights that will enable them to improve their professional practices in relation to the conceptualisation, design, implementation, assessment and evaluation of approaches to e-learning. The authors pay attention to the perspectives of both teachers and learners when exploring key questions including: How do online technologies affect pedagogy? How can online technologies best support learning? Key Issues in e-Learning avoids simplistic conceptualisations of online teaching and learning. Instead, this text draws on a wide range empirical, conceptual and theoretical evidence and outlines practical approaches to improving practice and research.
