6 Open Learning in Engineering - ITEPoly What is Open Learning? Open learning is a teaching method.teaching method Open learning is supposed to allow pupils self-determined, independent and interest-guided learning. Also : Active Learning….Cooperative Learning….Distance Education….Open Education.

7 Open Learning in Engineering - ITEPoly What is Open Learning? Distance education or distance learning is a field of education that focuses on teaching methods and technology with the aim of delivering teaching, often on an individual basis, to students who are not physically present in a traditional educational setting such as a classroom. It has been described as "a process to create and provide access to learning when the source of information and the learners are separated by time and distance, or both."

11 Open Learning in Engineering - ITEPoly Teesside University Open Learning in Engineering [TUOL] Teesside University open learning in engineering (TUOL) is the world’s leading provider of high quality flexible education to the engineering industry. For 25 years we have been creating high quality, stand alone, open learning materials. It is a realistic way to deliver necessary training and education to staff who are unable to attend conventional classroom based courses. So, if you work on an oil rig in the Caribbean or in pipeline construction in a desert, your professional development need not be interrupted – you can study at your own pace, effectively anywhere.

12 Open Learning in Engineering - ITEPoly Teesside University Open Learning in Engineering [TUOL] More than 30,000 students worldwide have studied engineering and technology courses that we have designed and developed. And our portfolio is growing. We offer: level 2 and 3 City & Guilds Certificates Higher National Certificates and Higher National Diplomas at levels 4 and 5

13 Open Learning in Engineering - ITEPoly Teesside University Open Learning in Engineering [TUOL] comprehensive tutor support network a dedicated online support site through e- learning which provides learning and support materials.e- learning

14 Open Learning in Engineering - ITEPoly Teesside University Open Learning in Engineering [TUOL] We currently offer HNC/D courses by flexible open learning in: Electrical and Electronic Engineering, HNC Electrical and Electronic Engineering, HND Mechanical Engineering, HNC Mechanical Engineering, HND Instrumentation and Control Engineering, HNC Instrumentation and Control Engineering, HND Chemical Engineering, HNC Chemical Engineering, HND Process Engineering, HNC Process Engineering, HND

15 Open Learning in Engineering - ITEPoly Teesside University Open Learning in Engineering [TUOL] After successfully completing a HND, you are well placed to continue your education and may consider studying for a degree. Teesside offers BEng (Hons) and MEng (Hons) degrees in a range of engineering disciplines, however these are not currently available through open learning.

25 Open Learning in Engineering - ITEPoly Online & Distance Education at UND The University of North Dakota has a strong history in distance learning, offering correspondence by mail courses since Today, more than 7,000 enroll in distance courses each year. With the University of North Dakota’s ABET- accredited distance engineering degree program, you can earn your Bachelor of Science in Engineering while you continue to live and work in your local community.ABET- accredited

26 Open Learning in Engineering - ITEPoly Online & Distance Education at UND The College of Engineering and Mines currently offers five of our engineering degree programs (chemical, civil, electrical, mechanical and petroleum) through a distance delivery mode called our Distance Engineering Degree Program (DEDP).Distance Engineering Degree Program (DEDP). Our DEDP delivery mode offers non-traditional engineering students an opportunity to complete most of their undergraduate degree coursework in our accredited undergraduate engineering programs through the internet. Students are required to complete their laboratory requirements through accelerated summer courses at UND. Since our DEDP students experience the same lectures and coursework requirements as our on campus students, we consider this education experience to be essentially equivalent.
