It’s been over two years since almost every instructor and student was suddenly forced to teach or learn remotely through some sort of technology. What have we learned about what works and what doesn’t and the role technology should play in teaching in the future?
This week’s episode of The Key, Inside Higher EducationThe news and analysis podcast, explores if and how the landscape of digital teaching and learning has changed over the past two years of global pandemic, recession, upheaval around racial justice and more.
Participants in the conversation are Shanna Smith Jaggars, associate vice provost for research and program evaluation in the Office of Student Academic Success at Ohio State University (and a self-proclaimed “friendly critic” of education online), and Jessica Rowland Williams, director of Every Learner Everywhere, which aims for equitable outcomes in higher education through advances in digital learning. During the discussion, they explore topics such as whether students’ expectations have changed about when, where, and how they learn; whether most faculty members are more likely to integrate technology into their pedagogy than they were before; and what institutional leaders need to do to ensure that whatever role digital learning plays in their future strategies, they do it well.
