Nazari success

Today one of my PhD students, Maryam Nazari, successfully defended her PhD thesis in her viva, and has passed, subject to the usual minor amendments. Congratulations to her! The title is: Information Literacy for Online Distance Learning GIS (Geographic Information Systems/Science) Programmes.
In the photo is (left to right) her external examiner (Bill Johnston), Me, Maryam and Nigel Ford (the internal examiner), after the viva.
I have already blogged a paper that has emerged from her research, namely:
Nazari, M. and Webber, S. (2008) "Model of Geo/Spatial Information Literacy (MG/SIL): an innovative model for transforming learning in GIS education." In: Proceedings of the EUGISES 2008 conference.
and there is also
Nazari, M and Webber, S. (2008) "Conceptions Of Geospatial Information In Online Distance Learning Gis Programs." IADIS International Conference e-Learning 2008, Amsterdam, The Netherlands, July 22-25, 2008. Proceedings 2008.
