This title enables readers to understand the key issues underpinning e-learning with a view to enabling them to use it effectively in their professional practice. This book offers education practitioners with little or no pedagogical grounding in the field of e-learning insights that will enable them to improve their professional practices in relation to the conceptualisation, design, implementation, assessment and evaluation of approaches to e-learning. The authors pay attention to the perspectives of both teachers and learners when exploring key questions including: How does technology affects pedagogy? How can technology best support learning? "Key Issues in e-Learning" avoids simplistic conceptualisations of online teaching and learning. Instead, this text draws on a wide range empirical, conceptual and theoretical evidence, and outlines practical approaches to improving practice and research.
'With sustainability and value as pivotal to e-learning, this book lights the pathways to the future. How to make a difference to e-learning for the future...it's here!'
