Borderland Spaces for Learning Partnership: Opportunities, Benefits and Challenges
Hill, Jennifer; Thomas, Greg; Diaz, Anita; Simm, David
Journal of Geography in Higher Education, v40 n3 p375-393 2016
This paper uses case studies and secondary literature to critically examine how learning spaces inhabited by geographers might be used productively as borderland spaces for learning partnership. Borderland spaces are novel, challenging, permissive and liminal, destabilizing traditional power hierarchies. In these spaces, students gain confidence in accepting agency in learning, moving towards critical thinking and reflective judgement, thereby developing self-authorship. They acquire new knowledge, skills and facets to their identity. They also feel anxiety as they take on new roles and adopt a partnership ethos. Faculty must guide students to support their successful navigation into and out of borderland spaces.
