The place of distance education within the student life-world Print

Thursday, 29 November 2007
Neil Selwyn has been awarded £20,000 by the Centre for Distance Education for "The place of distance education within the student ‘life-world': a study of international distance learners". Distance learning programmes now cater for globalised groups of students - albeit with varying local needs, demands and expectations. This project will explore and contrast how current forms of distance education fit with the wider ‘life-worlds' of international distance learners - not least in terms of the various technologies through which learning is supposed to take place.


Neil Selwyn says "the project aims to provide a vivid picture of the practical aspects of being a distance learner in today's globalised world.

This one year project will run until October 2008
