Co-operative Study and E-Learning: Lessons from Nova Scotia

Diarmuid Padraig McDonnell

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The development and embedding of e-learning in higher education has been well documented and numerous studies discuss best practice for incorporating appropriate pedagogies for effective online content delivery. Very few studies, if any, address the process and methodology of marrying a co-operative pedagogy with a higher education qualification de livered primarily online. This case study analyses the Master of Management in Co-operatives and Credit Unions (MMCCU), a
master’s level qualification offered by Saint Mary’s University in Nova Scotia, Canada, and what it means in terms of adopting a similar approach here in the UK.
