1) Introduction, including scientific background and highlighting the importance of this research area.
Word-widely the pandemic and the other issues such as globalization and digital development force us to re-think and develop our thoughts and ideas about learning and teaching. In the post-COVID-19 era, we need to reconsider how we define the role of education. We invite you for critical reflection and discussion of the position and the quality of Education 4.0? In what ways do we guarantee a high quality environment for learners which meets the criteria of Education 4.0. What elements and factors should we consider when designing and implementing learning and teaching environments in the post-COVID-19 era?
2) Aim of the Special Issue and how the subject relates to the journal scope.
This Special Issue provides a platform for discussion about teaching and learning in a digital age post-COVID-19. We are interested in theoretical papers exploring learning and teaching in the post-COVID-19 era and discussing future perspectives. We welcome empirical papers with novel approaches for developing learning and teaching in different educational settings as well methodological papers related to the topic are appreciated.
3) Suggest themes.
In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:
- Innovative and novel pedagogical approaches and strategies and design of teaching environments;
- Learning approaches and strategies and assessment of learning, design of learning environments;
- Use of learning analytics and artificial intelligence, augmented reality, simulations, and gamification;
- Pupils’/students’ skills and knowledge, competence in the digital age;
- Educator’s professional development in different educational settings;
- Pre- and in-service teacher education;
- Innovative solutions for learning and teaching at the different educational levels.
We look forward to receiving your contributions.
