Online, open and distance education
A few words about the course: Open and distance learning is usually contrasted with conventional or face-to-face education, which may be described as the form of education which takes place in a classroom. However, both distance and face-to-face education are labels covering a wide range of variations and methods. In each case different educational philosophies may be applied and different methods may be used. Face-to-face education may be supported by a range of media, and in a similar way, distance education has a variety of principles which educators may incorporate into their programmes of face-to-face teaching.
The methodology of this course is based on learning by doing and active learning strategies. The instructional approach is also used in order to provide the theoretical framework but all modules include task-based activities and group work promoting collaboration and synergy among trainees.
