The Cost Effectiveness of Distance Education for Primary Teacher Training
The purpose of the paper is to guide the planning of distance education programmes for teacher training. Many teacher-training programmes have sought a balance between general education, teaching in relation to specific subjects, classroom methods, and teaching about children, education and pedagogy. The balance between these different elements has varied according to the target audience and programme aims. A number of different models have been developed for integrating the supervision and assessment of classroom practice with other elements.
