Item Type: Book
Additional Information: E-learning. 20,000 word research-based introduction by editors (50% contribution). Combination of theoretical approaches from social network theory, situated learning and rhetoric. Reviews historical and theoretical bases to the field; maps new co-evolutionary relationship between ICT and learning as a model for researching e-learning. Derives from perception of gaps in the research filed identified in The Impact of ICT on Literacy Education (RoutledgeFlamer 2004); and from 2004-06 ESRC/Worldwide Universities Netwrok research seminars on e-learning series (both Andrews). Handbook represents first comprehensive mapping of the field of e-learning research, under headings of contexts, theory, policy, language/literacy and design issues. Provides foundation for further research at doctoral/research project levels. Significance: likely to be key reference point for future research in field. Basis for grant bids to MacArthur Foundation (US) with UIUC and NYU; and to ESRC TLRP TEL2. Peer reviewed internationally by Sage prior to and during development.
