In the last chapter, we discussed critical issues that impact the design and delivery of distance education programs. You were asked to write your own philosophy of education statement to serve as the foundation for your instructional decision making. For our final chapter in Part I -Foundations, we will introduce the historical and philosophical frameworks that continue to guide and direct instructional decisions—learning theory. Consider these questions as you read: Which learning theory best matches my own philosophy of education? What are some assumptions about the nature of learning that are built upon theory? How can I apply learning theory when developing and using practices in distance education?
