Abstract

The lecturers in an open and distance learning institution strive to ensure that their learners are provided with stimulating learning experiences which are on par with that of their counterparts in face to face institutions. They do this by continually evaluating their study materials and their assessment strategies and redesigning them to enhance effectiveness in the learning experiences. They maximally utilize available technology in combination with other human and physical resources to create interactions between learners and their environment, the learners and their lecturers, and tutors and learners within the institution. They work in teams to evaluate and develop study and assessment materials. This presentation will show the various training and research activities that lecturers and tutors have to engage in to be able to create the necessary interventions for learning in a science project for distance learners.
