Larkin, K. & Jamieson-Proctor, R. (2013). Transactional Distance Theory (TDT): An Approach to Enhancing Knowledge and reducing anxiety of pre-service teachers studying a mathematics eduation course online. 434-441. Australia: University of Melbourne.
This paper describes the use of transactional distance theory (TDT) as a conceptual framework to underpin the design and delivery of a fully online first-year mathematics education methods course to pre-service teachers. It identifies key issues evident in the mathematical literature concerning mathematics education in general and pre-service teacher mathematics education in particular. It describes the use of a course design process based on data collection and reflection, course redesign, on of design changes in a cyclical process to achieve course objectives.
