Abstract

Abstract: As an awareness-raising, stimulating and provocative article, Oblinger has produced an excellent piece of work. It provides an overview of the issues, yet is backed up by specific examples and practical applications. It makes generalisations and sweeping statements, yet formulates the issues into tables which pinpoint the issues very clearly. It is sober rather than hyped; it is grounded in facts, rather than being wishywashy. If academics put into practice even a fraction of what is hinted at in this article, we would have happier, more challenged and engaged learners.

Editors: Terry Anderson and Denise Whitelock.
