Abstract

An increasing number of Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) institutions are operating across several geographical locations, due to mergers, partnerships or expansion into new markets. The seminal work by Boyer (1996) on ‘scholarship of engagement’ could not have greater resonance with such distributed HEIs, like the Open University. Its presence both nationally and regionally has a distinct advantage of harnessing local community knowledge that can inform scholarship projects (Chatteron & Goddard, 2000), as well as providing an opportunity for participatory research (Barker, 2004). However, the disadvantage is that academics working in nations and regions away from main campus may pursue scholarship in a disparate and singular way. As a consequence, there may be an unawareness of other work relating to their own scholarship projects taking place in different areas of their institution, and, missed opportunities to engage with cross disciplinary collaborative scholarship.
