Interview with Terry Anderson

Steve Wheeler, Journal on Efficiency and Responsibility in Education and Science, Mar 20, 2014
Commentary by Stephen Downes

It's always nice to hear from Terry Anderson, and I'm sure readers will be delighted to find his new book will be available in May (as open access of course) here. Anderson's take on the biggest issue facing distance education reasearch? It "is distance between the researchers! Unlike most research centres, even those at Open Universities, at Athabasca our faculty work from home offices and we may never meet our graduate students face-to-face... Beyond that much of what happens in distance education is cloaked behind passwords and in private studies, thus a researcher has to find ways to assess teaching and learning."
