Title: Student-community engagement activities at distance – digital narrative methods to capture a sense of “place” in research

I am a part-time PhD student at Moray House and Lecturer in Distance Student Learning at the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies working primarily with postgraduate online distance learning students. My research project is looking at support of student-community engagement activities at distance and how digital narrative methods could be used to capture a sense of “place” in research.
