Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Traditional barriers of geography, organization, and culture and being broken down by emerging technology [1]. In the recording industry, professionals often collaborate on projects globally, engaging in what Tapscott and Williams [2] call “peer-production.” The potential in these concepts extends to those developing their expertise—they can connect with peers and industry professionals on a global scale. Despite the potential however, most Higher Education institutions fail to engage for cultural reasons. This paper outlines a model for collaborative learning explored and developed through a project funded by the UK's Higher Education Academy. The project involved Coventry University and industry organization JAMES as well as a number of other international partners. The paper looks at the pedagogical background to the project, some typical activities undertaken before summarizing the key outcomes and opportunities for further work.
