New article about learning across distances

Second machine age is characterized by the increasing possibilities and activities in digital space in the process of knowledge creation and learning. International projects that support collaborative learning across distance are possible, but include challenges in terms of forming a shared understanding and gaining enough proximities.

Together with Professor Suntje Schmidt from the Humboldt-Universit├Ąt zu Berlin, we piloted an international course for the university students in Turku and Berlin. In this article, we analyze the course with the dimensions of proximities and distances and form a model for organizing such a course in universities.
