Clark, Jill; Laing, Karen; Leat, David; Lofthouse, Rachel; Thomas, Ulrike; Tiplady, Lucy; Woolner, Pamela – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2017
Current debates around the concept of boundary crossing stress the importance of boundary objects in bringing people together to share understandings. We argue that the boundary object is of secondary importance, and that what is important for the transformational potential of interdisciplinary understanding is opportunities for "boundary…

Harricharan, Michelle; Bhopal, Kalwant – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2014
When compared with wider social research, qualitative educational research has been relatively slow to take up online research methods (ORMs).

Enriquez, Judith Guevarra – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2010
In this article, centrality is explored as a measure of computer-mediated communication (CMC) in networked learning. Centrality measure is quite common in performing social network analysis (SNA) and in analysing social cohesion, strength of ties and influence in CMC, and computer-supported collaborative learning research. It argues that measuring…
