It’s been in review for over a year but at last the paper I wrote with James Lamb and Michael Sean Gallagher is accepted for publication in Higher Education. This comes out of our project on the New Geographies of Learning, and looks at how distance students ‘make’ university space when they never actually attend the campus. We found that the physical campus is more important to these students than you might think. There’s a sneak preview of the paper draft here.
Look out also for another paper from the same project, Jen Ross, Michael Gallagher and Hamish Macleod’s paper on ‘Making distance visible’ will shortly be out in the International Review of Research in Online and Distance Learning.
