  • Milton D. Cox Author
  • Jacqueline McDonald University of Southern Queensland Author


This is the first time that the topic of social learning spaces has been featured as a special issue of the Journal on Excellence in College Teaching. In their book Learning to Make a Difference: Value Creation in Social Learning Spaces, Wenger-Trayner and Wenger-Trayner (2020) write, “We talk about a social learning space as a particular experience of engagement that takes place among people in pursuit of learning to make a difference” (p. 13).
