Research Report: Student Satisfaction: A Distance Learning Model for Training Teachers of Students with Visual Impairments in New York State
Since Research Reports do not have abstracts, we have provided an extract of the beginning of the full text.
Since 1920, the Hadley School for the Blind in Winnetka, Illinois, has provided distance learning (via correspondence courses) to individuals who are visually impaired (that is, are blind or have low vision) and their families to support the acquisition of specialized skills and to attain the knowledge needed for full participation in life (Wolffe, 2001). Although distance learning has been in existence since 1920, its application to the preparation of teachers is more recent. In 1998, 44% of all institutions of higher education offered distance education courses, and the number continues to rise (Huebner & Weiner, 2001).
