University Learning and Learning Universities: Collaboration or Competition?
PCF1 // The paper addresses several issues which impact on distance learning at university level including the tension between collaboration and competition. The focus on access, bears a direct relation to a number of concerns such as the ability of distance learning to provide for flexibility of study, for addressing the needs of persons in areas of low population density, and for transcending geographical boundaries. A comment on financial implications is also offered. A brief look is then taken at practice and staff development. In addition, a number of other concerns are highlighted for future consideration. //
