Product description


'Altogether excellent book: friendly, challenging and direct'. New Academic

'Practices par excellence what it teachs.' British Journal of Educational Technology

This is is another of the excellent series of books from the UK Open University on the mechanics of delivering higher education.While first published in the early 1990s, the techniques described are still applicable for today's Internet based education, as well as being of benefit for classroom teaching. Rowntree goes through the steps of planning, writing and rewriting materials for education, giving numerous examples. In the glamor of smart-phones, tablets and phablets, it is important to remember that education still relies on having good content, designed and delivered by people who know about teaching. Blog from "The Higher Education Whisperer" (Tom Worthington, Australian National University), September 6, 2013

From the Back Cover

'This practical handbook guides teachers in open and distance learning through the key phases of planning and developing materials for coursework. Each phase involves a specific sequence of development tasks, supported by background information, examples and checklists that the author has refined in numerous workshops and consultancies. By the time you have worked through the book, you should have completed and piloted the first draft of your learning package.'
