Open learning and critical reflection: Implications for OTEN
AbstractThis article examines the relationship between open learning and critical reflection and the implications of this for OTEN. OTEN (Open Training and Education Network) is the TAFE institution which was formerly known as the External Studies College of TAFE and which in 1990 changed its name to the Open College and more recently to OTEN. The fact that the word "open" is now incorporated in its name is significant in so far as its role is perceived to have changed from distance to open education.
