Post-Pandemic Shifts: Learning and Growing through Change
The global pandemic forced everyone to move quickly and adapt to new ways of teaching and learning. During this challenging time, teachers and students became more resilient and also more open to using different teaching structures and learning formats. Change, adaptation and responsive pedagogy became common parts of our everyday school life and learning culture. How have these different formats influenced our practices in a post-pandemic era? Have any of them become permanently embedded in the way we teach? And what new challenges does the post-pandemic era present for us and our students and how are we tackling them? We call for article proposals that document successful post-pandemic practices across grade levels and content areas, from educators in P-12 and in higher education.
