A Framework for Supporting Adults in Distance Learning
Linda Dowling and Orna Ryan




Characteristics of Successful Adult Distance Instructors for Adult Learners
by Nora N. Smith
After reading the articles, each of you needs to answer the following questions and
reply to your peers' answers. Review all of your peers' answers and select at least
three peers' answers to reply.

           Q1 - “In recent years, many ‘traditional’ Higher Education Institutes (HEI’s)
           have been seeking to increase the participation of ‘non-traditional’
           learners….. The increase in the number of non-traditional learners’ calls for
           innovative and complementary academic and administrative support
           strategies designed to meet the unique needs of these learners.” Do you
           agree with this statement? Do you suggest any strategies and ideas that help
           traditional institutions promote the academic and non-academic supports for
           non-traditional learners?

           Q 2 - “For distance instructors, knowing how computers operate and
           understanding how educational technologies operate is not adequate
           preparation to work with adult learners.” Do you agree or not? Why?
