Abstract

This handbook is designed to help you strengthen your understanding of the principles and practice of tutoring in open and distance learning (ODL), and to feel more confident in applying these principles and practices to your particular situation. This handbook is for you if your role involves providing direction, academic support and assessment through consistent contact with open and distance learners engaged in a specific course of study. The most commonly used term for this role is ‘tutor’; other terms are ‘mentor’, ‘facilitator’, ‘guide’, ‘instructor’ or ‘teacher’. It is also for you if your role involves working with tutors, as a colleague, administrator, supervisor, or course author.
