Abstract Overview

Education is consistently evolving in accordance with changing a new paradigm. Recent world events have blurred the lines between home and the classroom and hence necessitated modifying our approach to education and research in order to effectively reach all students and provide support to educators across age groups with presented initiatives, introduced policies, and changed practices for a new vision of future education.

Learning Reconsidered: The Changing Face of Education provides space for the demonstration of innovative changes within education by answering the following:

  • How are we using teaching/learning technologies in and outside the classrooms?
  • How are we approaching research on education with ingenuity?
  • How are we supporting creative frameworks in emerging academic spaces?
  • Are historical events being used to trailblaze newness in the field?
  • What collaborative and holistic methods are we promoting within education?
  • In what ways have we shown bravery, boldness, and/or risk-taking through the various areas of education and research?
  • How are diversity and inclusion changing in emerging learning spaces?
  • How has the pandemic affected our teaching and learning, and how have we dealt with the change?
  • Are we as educators utilizing our knowledge about race and other social justice issues to trailblaze newness in the field?
