Abstract

Guidelines on open and distance learning for youth and adult literacy addresses a gap in literacy provision by presenting open and distance learning (ODL) principles and practices to illustrate how learning and education can be delivered at a distance. This publication is divided into two main parts. Part 1 presents practical guidance in four areas—planning, development, implementation, and monitoring and evaluation—and part 2 considers the various technologies that are used for ODL programmes and could support youth and adult literacy learning. Policy-makers, literacy providers and educators will benefit from understanding and applying the concept and principles of ODL in designing and delivering effective, inclusive and sustainable literacy programmes and learning opportunities—strengthening the resilience of their literacy programmes and expanding outreach and participation in the process.
