The Centre for Distance Education

Distance education and online learning has been on the rise over the past decade and it does not appear to be slowing anytime soon. Learners may utilize online courses, online degree programs or attend institutions that provide blended learning opportunities. This self directed module introduces learners to the challenges and benefits of online learning as well as the misconceptions. 

Research has shown that when learners know what to expect in their online classes they are more likely to be successful.

This unit focuses on two competing ideologies that come out of WWII, communism and capitalism as they exist between the two superpowers (the Soviet Union and the United States of America). The competing ideologies drove the globe into the Cold War, a time of global uncertainty and an aggressive power struggle. During this unit we will focus on defining this time period while making light of events that defined the Cold War era. 

Observation is a key responsibility of early childhood educators as it provides an opportunity to gain insight into how children think, learn, and make sense of their world. (Ontario Ministry of Education, 2017). Best practice is to then use these observations to gather information to create experiences that build on children’s natural curiosity, ideas, abilities, and life experiences. The following learning module will provide early childhood education students an opportunity to practice working through experience planning development for children aged 0-12.
