Special Issue "Using Technology in Higher Education"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 November 2020.
Interests: technology for teaching in higher education; technology enabled flexible pedagogy; blended learning; online learning; technology enhanced learning and flexible pedagogy; technology adaptation in teaching and learning in the face of the Coronavirus
We are pleased to announce this upcoming Special Issue looking at technology in Higher Education: something that has enabled institutions globally to respond in a flexible and responsive way to the unexpected challenges of the cessation of face-to-face teaching as many countries have instituted social distancing and closure of educational campuses.
This issue offers the opportunity to share innovative ideas and established practice that show the ways that technology can be used in teaching Higher Education, with a focus on those aspects that are distinct from those of other educational contexts—for example, managing to engage students who are adults, who have different interests and pressures, and who need different and distinct support. Moreover, we invite contributions that show how technology can enable education that meets the need to create graduates who can operate and flourish in the context of the 4th industrial revolution. This requires Higher Education to enable students to deal with the cascade of information and data and arm them with the skills to critically select reliable sources and to manipulate and manage data. Technology also offers support for virtual learning and collaboration. Given the experiences of 2020 and the global responses to the Coronavirus, this issue is also an opportunity to share evidence-based approaches to moving learning to entirely online.
