Open and Distance Education Theory Revisited

Singapore (SG), November 2019 - The anthology "Open and Distance Education Theory Revisited" explores foundational theories that have been applied in open and distance education (ODE) research and refined to reflect advances in research and practice. In addition, it develops new theories emerging from recent developments in ODE.

The work provides a unique and up-to-date source of information for ODE scholars and graduate students, enabling them to make sense of essential theory, research, and practice in their field and to comprehend the gaps in theoretical approaches in the digital era and the need for further enquiry. It also offers theory-based advice and guidelines for practitioners, helping them make and justify decisions and actions concerning the development, implementation, research, and evaluation of ODE.
