Although this work is ambitious in scope, I feel this is an important element of the writing, to present an overview such that the reader is able to see the inter-relations of many ideas relevant to design. This is a synthesis of a kind which I believe has so far not been attempted. Ecological design principles are illustrated through a consideration of a variety of topics, such as urban-rural planning, agriculture and economic systems, hence a general appreciation of the application of permaculture is achieved. The first section of this work uses the idea of quality of life to define alternative possibilities for working, and for a different relationship between people and the natural environment.
Description[ edit ] The theory consists of a set of principles and a model that defines the pedagogical aspects of education as contrasted with others such as management and policy in three sets of variables.
Transactional distance theory states that when an instructional designer makes decisions, these decisions will result in a certain amount of structure, dialog and autonomy.
These amounts can be either unwitting consequences of the instructional design process, or the result of conscious instructional design decisions.
Regardless, these variables interact to create transactional distance which Michael G. Some of these are listed below together with a brief description. By the turn of the millennium, distance education had evolved from being synonymous with correspondence courses to being largely web-based.
Aixu Monica Zhang built on Michael G. She found that these four sets of variables were highly and statistically correlated with Student Satisfaction, which she adopted as her surrogate measure for Transactional Distance.
Her work lead to a 31 element statistically reliable and significant Scale of Transactional Distance.
Relative Proximity Theory Swart et al. Such a measure assumes meaning only when compared to another similar measure such as, for example, in a statistical pre —post intervention comparison.
Many studies do not lend themselves to pre-post intervention comparisons.
For example, the transactional distance between an actual class and an ideal class. Revised Scale of Transactional Distance Paul et al. There are many changes in the educational environment that have occurred since Zhang developed her Scale of Transactional Distance: Coll-TD Scale Wengrowicz et al.
This scale builds on Michael G. This yielded a 40 element statistically reliable and valid instrument. This instrument extends the Coll-TD Scale to Flipped Classrooms where collaboration takes place both f2f, during interactive group learning sessions, and outside class virtual or f2f during collaboration on projects or take home exams.
This 46 element scale was also shown to be statistically valid and reliable. References[ edit ] Chen, Y. Journal of Distance Education, 13 2 Transactional distance in World Wide Web learning environments.
