Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Currently, the integration of technology into higher education and the support it provides via hybrid and/or blended learning approaches is more crucial than ever due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Although many researchers have already studied how digital technology could enhance teaching and learning in higher education, it is the COVID-19 pandemic that has forced everyone to change or reconsider how technology could be used in order to overcome the isolation restrictions. The COVID-19 teaching and learning disruptions have currently led university teachers to design, develop and explore alternative and innovative teaching and pedagogical approaches integrating learning technology.
The aim of this Special Issue is not only to present successful practice examples from before or during the COVID-19 pandemic, but also to provide useful information to university teachers in order to assist them to further understand the higher education context, demands and challenges of digital education. The rapid teaching and learning change in higher education, the reshaping curriculum demands, the 21st century digital competence challenges and learning technology developments are only some of the areas that may be influenced by the COVID-19 pandemic and they may be bound to stay with us. All these areas make it crucial for higher education teachers, educational researchers, and learning technologists to consider teaching and learning under the perspectives of digital education and innovation.
