Distance learning is becoming an increasingly popular way of studying, and most universities now provide courses using these methods. Today's students, though, are demanding high quality, consumer-focused and flexible courses, as well as learning resources and active learner support. This means that providers of distance education need to reconsider key issues about their learner support systems, ensuring that this is delivered appropriately and effectively. Considering the changing needs and demands of distance education students, this book draws together contributions from the UK, USA, Hong Kong, Australia, Japan, South Africa and Botswana, to offer an international perspective on: * the challenges and opportunities of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) * quality assurance, commercialisation and the learner as consumer * the impact on learners of cultural differences on internationalised curricula * the implications for learner support of a wider range of learners This book should be read by all those involved in developing and delivering distance education courses.

This book is a continuation of authors' previous six books — Understanding Advanced Physical Inorganic Chemistry, Understanding Advanced Organic and Analytical Chemistry, Understanding Advanced Chemistry Through Problem Solving Vol. I & II, Understanding Basic Chemistry and Understanding Basic Chemistry Through Problem Solving, retaining the main refutational characteristics of the previous books with the strategic inclusion of think-aloud questions to promote conceptual understanding during an experimental planning. These essential questions would make learners aware of the rationale behind each procedural step, the amount of chemical used and types of apparatus that are appropriate for the experiment. The book provides a fundamental important scaffolding to aid students to create their own understanding of how to plan an experiment based on the given reagent and apparatus. It guides the students in integrating the various concepts that they have learnt into a coherent and meaningful conceptual network during experimental planning. Existing A-level or IB guidebooks generally introduce concepts in a matter-of-fact manner. This book adds a unique pedagogical edge which few can rival. This book is essential and useful in order for students to be adequately prepared for their high stake examinations.

This book addresses how to assess and instruct students while also honoring their cultural and linguistic backgrounds. Many individuals want to support their multilingual learners but do not have the language skills to work in a bilingual or dual-language setting. The chapters in this book examine assessment in classrooms where English is the language of instruction; yet, students are also encouraged to communicate in multiple languages. The thesis of this book revolves around the idea that linguistically diverse learners may engage in critical thinking in ways that we may not anticipate. Students who are learning in an additional language do not need to “catch up.” Assessment should instead measure the new ways that students are interacting with the world. This book helps you discover the many ways to help students develop as critically thinking readers, writers and speakers. There is a scarcity of research addressing literacy among linguistically diverse learners within math and science. The information contained in this book will hopefully advance a dialogue between teachers and linguistically diverse students as they read and write multiple genres together. This book also encourages teachers, family, and community members to come together to form supportive environments where best practices are fostered. Some of the questions addressed by this book: 1. How do I determine a student’s strengths and needs if he or she is not talking in class in any language? 2. Do I teach monolingual and multilingual learners to read in similar ways? 3. How can I support my students as they read math word problems? 4. What do students need to know about the structures of science texts? 5. How should we develop math and science literacy assessments? 6. Should I have specific language goals for students as speakers?

Flipping through a dictionary pages will now be having a new meaning while reading through Professional Learner’s Dictionary of Spoken English. Designed as the Encyclopaedia of Communicative English, the dictionary contains whole gamut of idioms, sayings and phrases which are used in conversations—in both formal and informal situations. The book has been conceptualised and conceived for the ESL (English As a Second Language) learners, for whom English is a foreign language, but who are eager to speak Real English like the native speakers of English. This book attempts to go beyond the traditional approaches of Spoken English, and takes a communicative approach. Besides making a user aware of the meaning of a term, this book educates skillfully how to speak effective English, what to speak and what not to speak, in order to communicate flawlessly. Conversational ability, fluency in speaking, situation-specific (such as welcome speech) and format-based speaking (such as participating in a group discussion) are some other features of the book that will help a learner pick up the language effortlessly with ease. The book will be of immense utility for the students of Engineering, Management, Communication and all those for whom expressing their thoughts in words is a barrier, and who want to learn English and succeed in Professional and Personal life.

This new volume of work highlights the distinctiveness of child SLA through a collection of different types of empirical research specific to younger learners. Characteristics of children's cognitive, emotional, and social development distinguish their experiences from those of adult L2 learners, creating intriguing issues for SLA research, and also raising important practical questions regarding effective pedagogical techniques for learners of different ages. While child SLA is often typically thought of as simple (and often enjoyable and universally effortless), in other words, as “child's play”, the complex portraits of young second language learners which emerge in the 16 papers collected in this book invite the reader to reconsider the reality for many younger learners. Chapters by internationally renowned authors together with reports by emerging researchers describe second and foreign language learning by children ranging from pre-schoolers to young adolescents, in home and school contexts, with caregivers, peers, and teachers as interlocutors.

“What does a new instructional designer need to know to find her or his feet when working with faculty to create online classes?” This is a practical handbook for established and aspiring instructional designers in higher education, readers who may also be identified by such professional titles as educational developer, instructional technologist, or online learning specialist. Jerod Quinn, together with a team of experienced instructional designers who have worked extensively with a wide range of faculty on a multiplicity of online courses across all types of institutions, offer key guiding principles, insights and advice on how to develop productive and collegial partnerships with faculty to deliver courses that engage students and promote enduring learning. Designing and developing online classes for higher education takes a combination of pedagogical knowledge, the ability to build trust with faculty, familiarity with frameworks on how people learn, understanding of accessibility and inclusion, and technical skills to leverage a learning management system into an educational experience. Coming from diverse backgrounds, few instructional designers enter academia well versed in all of these aspects of creating online classes. This book provides the foundation on which instructional designers can build their careers. The guiding principle that animates this book is that the student experience and successful learning outcomes are paramount, and governs discussion of course design, pedagogy, the use of multimedia and technological advances, as well as the use of different forms of interactive exercises and group assignments. The succinct, informally written chapters offer ideas and means to apply theory to the daily work of instructional design and cover the four key components that drive thus work in higher education: ● Defining the scope and main design approaches of our work ● Building trust with the faculty we work with ● Applying frameworks of how people learn ● Mastering common online instructional practices
