Example text

We have adopted a dual approach here by providing both a big picture view and the nitty-gritty of the details that make it all work. Again, because of the challenges involved, it is no accident that substantial portions of the discussion focus on laboratory delivery. Chapter 10: Needs, Costs, and Accessibility of DE Science Lab Programs Most laboratory experiences require the effective and safe coordination of personnel, equipment, chemicals, samples, and biological specimens in space and time by skilled staff.

By so doing they have provided a series of responses to the problem of teaching science that is based on pedagogical theory and research, which helps move the quality of analysis and then the level of debate several steps beyond anything we have seen on this subject until now. I particularly enjoyed seeing the first chapter deal with the challenge of managing instructional development teams. What a revolution in the quality and efficiency of distance education there would be if we could move from rhetoric to reality in the application of the team concept in course design and delivery!

The authors begin by outlining the fundamental structures that need to be in place to deliver DE science laboratories and go on to do a costing analysis in comparison with more traditional laboratory delivery. The chapter concludes with an examination of the impact on student participation of introducing home-study laboratory kits into a science course. Chapter 11: Challenges and Opportunities for Teaching Laboratory Sciences at a Distance in a Developing Country The wholesale importation of someone else舗s solution is not always the right solution.
