The Phenomenology of Space in Writing Online
van Manen, Max; Adams, Catherine
Educational Philosophy and Theory, v41 n1 p10-21 Feb 2009
In this paper we explore the phenomenon of writing online. We ask, "Is writing by means of online technologies affected in a manner that differs significantly from the older technologies of pen on paper, typewriter, or even the word processor in an off-line environment?" In writing online, the author is engaged in a spatial complexity of physical, temporal, imaginal, and virtual experience: the writing space, the space of the text, cyber space, etc. At times, these may provide a conduit to a writerly understanding of human phenomena. We propose that an examination of the phenomenological features of online writing may contribute to a more pedagogically sensitive understanding of the experiences of online seminars, teaching and learning.
