E-learning rhetoric, creativity and innovation
In this issue of ALT-J we have five papers that cover a range of policy, evaluation and development issues. The first paper, by Smith, sets the scene for the remaining papers with its focus on policy and how this may be influenced by rhetoric, and in turn may influence creativity and innovation. In ‘From flowers to palms: 40 years of policy for online learning’, Smith presents a review of learning technology-related policy over the past 40 years. The purpose of the review is to make sense of the current position in which the field finds itself, and to highlight lessons that can be learned from the implementation of previous policies.
