Quality education and learning

31st March 2020

We would love to hear more about your current research exploring the future of teaching and learning. Search our publishing opportunities below or read the latest research and thinking on the topic.

The future of teaching and learning

Our educational institutions have seen disruption in recent months as a result of the global coronavirus pandemic and subsequent lockdown. It raises the question, what might this mean for the future of teaching and learning?

With technology playing a key role and educators learning new ways of communicating with students, we have an opportunity to rethink how we educate and define what learning should look like in our interconnected, digital world. Could COVID-19 change how we educate future generations?
