Open learning is playing an increasingly prominent role in the education and training of health-care practitioners - nurses, doctors and therapists - and some health-care teachers are developing expertise in the management of open learning systems. This book is intended to show how all teachers can, through reviewing and refocusing their existing skills, become experts in open learning. Chapters offer practical guidance on: writing an open learning curriculum; choosing and adapting open learning materials; teaching students how to manage their learning; the tutorial role in an open learning system; and integrating open learning with existing modes of teaching. Many of the discussions are based on actual examples. The book offers advice and practical help to those who wish to introduce open learning and those already using it. It should be of interest to those interested in the theory of open learning, as well as the practice.
