Barbour, M. K., & Mulcahy, D. (2009, October). Time and responsibility: Examining the volunteer workload of school-based personnel in one distance education program. Roundtable presented at the annual convention of the Association for Educational Communication and Technology, Louisville, KY.
Historically, K-12 distance education in Newfoundland & Labrador largely worked due to the widely known, but rarely documented content-based assistance from school-based personnel. Currently, more rural schools find they must rely upon distance education to offer academic-level courses to students with a wide range of abilities, creating new responsibilities for teachers that have also gone undocumented. This study will document the duties and time required to provide support for this new model of distance education.
