Uncanny spaces for higher education: teaching and learning in virtual worlds

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This paper brings together the theory of the uncanny as it emerges in cultural theory,
with an understanding of the uncanniness and troublesomeness seen to be inherent incertain understandings of teaching and learning in higher education. Drawing on
research into students’ experiences of learning in virtual worlds, it explores the sense in which teaching in such spaces materialises and extends the positive aspects of uncertainty, strangeness, disquietude and troublesomeness in online higher education.
