Description: Transactional distance is the perceived psychological distance experienced in a learning environment. With the recent health pandemic, transactional distance is a problem that can impact the learner-faculty relationship. Moore’s transactional distance theory will shed light on this growing problem. TDT is a pedagogical view that psychological distance has an impact interaction in learning environments, which is influenced by dialogue, structure, and autonomy. Strategies for preventing TD will be discussed.
