Designing distance learning materials using a dialogic theory of language

Yusef Waghid


This article deals with a dialogic theory of language as the guiding principle for learnercentred
and interactive distance learning course materials. Constituted by the power of
dialogue, a dialogic theory of language is used to develop an understanding of
instructional design that embodies dynamism and flexibility. Such a notion of instructional
design should engender practices that can bring about learner-centred course materials
for distance learning.
Hierdie artikel het te make met 'n dialogiese raalteorie wat as orienteringsbeginsel dien vir
leer-gesentreerde en interaktiewe kursusmateriaal van afstandsleer. 'n Dialogiese
taalteorie wat gekonstitueer word deur die mag van dialoog word gebruik om 'n begrip
van instruksionele ontwerp te ontwikkel, wat dinamika en aanpasbaarheid omvat. Hierdie
tipe instruksionele ontwerp behoort praktyke te kan genereer wat leer-gesentreerde
kursusmateriaal vir afstandleer bewerkstellig.
