Ever wonder about the politics, values and aesthetics that underpin the MSc Social Justice? As I think many of you know, I was deeply influenced by my colleagues over in Digital Education and their ideas about the possibilities (and the problems) of online distance education.
I’d like to highlight a few of my favourite normative statements:
–Distance is temporal, affective, political: not simply spatial.
–Aesthetics matter: interface design shapes learning.
–Online teaching need not be complicit with the instrumentalisation of education.
–Don’t succumb to campus envy: we are the campus.
