Effective Teacher Behaviors and Michael Moore’s Theory of Transactional Distance
Moore's theory of transactional distance provides a useful lens for library and information educators designing distance education programs and courses. Developers must attend to both elements of course structure and opportunities for teacher-student interaction and studentstudent interaction. The challenge for distance education instructors is to strike a balance between the two. Other variables important to consider are: learning style, learner autonomy, and student motivation.
