Description:

The paper explains how Otto Peters' "Industrialized Teaching and Learning" chastises academics for failing to recognize the potential for distance education and learning. The paper discusses Peter's contention that because distance learning was perceived by educators and mainstream universities as a product of "industrialization," academics failed to build a body of pedagogy around this concept. The paper further discusses Peter's belief that educators are losing the opportunity to become independent distance educators, who are not limited by the classroom and the commitment to a single institution.

From the Paper:

"Otto Peters' (1997) Industrialized Teaching and Learning is as close to a chastisement of education, and certainly academics, for failing to recognize the potential for distance education and learning. For Peters, the lack of pedagogy on the subject arose out of academia's limited scope of impending change, and academics inability to think out of the box. Peters says that mainstream institutions missed the boat by not taking seriously the trend towards distance education and learning. Academics continue to criticize distance education and learning instead of recognizing the opportunities that distance education and learning creates for professors, especially those whose work in teaching is highly sought by students, but limited by classroom and the commitment to a single institution. Peters says that distance education and learning is wrongly categorized by academics as industrialized education, and this is an accurate point. The industrial revolution has passed, and we are in the age of a technological revolution. Distance education and learning is, and always has been, the product of the growing move towards the world reliance on technology."
