Stirling, J., Hopkins, K. & Riddick, B. (2010). Digital integrity and the teaching/learning nexus: taking the pedagogical pulse of the multi-location university.. International Journal for Educational Integrity, 6 (2), 50-63.


This case study considers questions of pedagogical and educational integrity in relation to multi-location or distributed learning environments that deploy blended learning models. Specifically, we engage with the implications of these models in light of recommendations that Australian universities continue to improve access for students from low socio-economic backgrounds and other identified equity groups. We provide an overview of the critical success factors germane to the implementation of these models at the University of Wollongong in 2000 and examine some of the pressure points that have emerged as the project expands into 2010.
