e-learning environments: Generation C – the missing link

Towers, Stephen J., Smith, Judith E., & Bruns, Axel (2005) e-learning environments: Generation C – the missing link. In Symposium on Teaching Technology in Higher Education: The 24/7 e-University, 11-12 October 2005, Perth, Western Australia. (Unpublished)


Consideration of the creative industries as a cohesive sector is a relatively recent and contentious construct. The newly coined label "Generation C" is used as a lens to frame relevant literature that describes knowledge workers who use information and communication technologies (ICT) to create and share content. To support learners in becoming effective creative industries practitioners, a reconsideration of learning designs is proposed that leverages Generation C learners’ natural communication practices and digital skill sets. Curriculum projects from the Creative Industries Faculty (CIF) at Queensland University of Technology (QUT) are presented as illustrations of approaches being employed. Challenges for academic managers include understanding the potential shift and strategically supporting new learning designs.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
