Example text

Holism stresses the whole (the system) and studies its parts not as separate entities but as components of the whole. Knowledge of the purpose that a system serves, for instance, makes for understanding of the functions of the parts. The components of the distance-education system are, for example, students with their needs and wishes, tutors and others representing the supporting organization, subject and curriculum requirements, goals, the presentation of subject matter, students’ interaction with tutors, counsellors and fellow-students, the assessment of learning, course and systems evaluation, and organizationaladministrative arrangements.

Naturally, educational policy cannot neglect the requirements of society to provide some sort of moral upbringing. On the other hand, the indoctrinating character of any endeavour of this kind cannot be disregarded. In order to ensure that people are not brainwashed, it is necessary that a reasonable plurality should characterize their upbringing and their general socialization. It is doubtful, however, to what extent this is really an issue in distance education for adults with a number of social responsibilities and commitments.

This definition is important for ridding us of an otherwise wellgrounded objection to treating teaching and learning as one package. The objection would be that teaching and learning are sometimes little related to each other. It has rightly been said that, when something has been learned in a teaching-learning situation, learning may have been caused by influences other than those of the teaching. When something has been taught, we do not know whether something has been learned; and if something has been learned, we do not automatically know what it is— it is possibly something different from what was intended by the teaching (Loser and Terhart 1977:29).
