What do you think the future of teaching looks like?
COVID-19 has taught us a lot about teaching and learning in the digital age. Technology has allowed us to keep in touch with our students while ensuring the continuity of learning. The use of digital technology continues to play a key role in the way we communicate, share resources, offer feedback and collaborate with our students and staff. We have been forced to redefine our roles as educators and as a result, are experiencing new possibilities and exploring more flexible ways of teaching.
