"Distance Education for Teacher Training" is the first comparative review of the use of distance education and open learning for the training and upgrading of teachers. It contains case studies using a broadly common format both to describe and analyze distance teacher training programs in eleven countries across five continents. The case studies describe the methods used to examine how far the craft of teaching can be studied at a distance. Using a standardized microeconomic framework, they provide unique data on the comparative costs of training teachers by distance and conventional methods. The authors then draw general conclusions about the advantages and drawbacks of using distance education or open learning, about the conditions for success, and about comparative effects and costs.
