Special Issue: Distance Education Across Critical Theoretical Landscapes

Touchstones for Quality Research and Teaching

Distance education, as online learning as well as in other forms, was gaining in popularity before the COVID-19 outbreak but has increased dramatically in conjunction with orders to close educational institutions and learn remotely. Researchers and practitioners alike share responsibility for ensuring distance education practices now and in the future serve all the learners.

The purpose of this webinar is to examine critical perspectives in distance education, including but not limited to Critical Race Theories, Disability Studies, and Gender Studies (Feminisms/Womanisms/Genderqueer) and their intersections.

Come join authors from the Distance Education Vol. 41 No. 3 Special Issue on this topic. During this 90-minute gathering from around the globe, we will discuss criticality in distance education broadly and examine touchstones for quality research and teaching around democratization, encounters, and openness. Moderators will ask authors from the issue questions following the format of an academic panel followed by additional inquiries and discussion raised by participants.

Wednesday 26th August, 10.00AM (AEST).
