‘Learning and Teaching in a Pandemic: Opportunities, Challenges and Lessons Learnt’, will be explored through the lens of three cross-cutting Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) themes:
- Active, Collaborative Learning (ACL)–a continuum of practice(s): Stories from Lockdown / Socially Distanced Classrooms;
- Teaching, Technology and the Pandemic: Everyday Scholarship Stories of Digital Tools and Technologies; and,
- Being Together, While Apart: Sustaining Learning Communities through and beyond Covid.
The SoTL themes listed together bring into focus the concept of ‘resilient pedagogies’ - pedagogic approaches / practices adaptable to varied learning environments and change, the digital tools and technologies and organisational culture and practices (Learning Community) which facilitate this, and implications for current and future learning and teaching practice(s) and policy focused on enacting change in / through Higher Education including (but not limited to), for example, Success for All and Social Mobility.
