This post on the Higher Education and Policy Institute blog, How can we assure quality in online higher education by David LeFevre of Imperial College, looks to the next phase when online learning is not a response to the pandemic crisis but becomes part of a university's strategy.
'The challenge is to identity pedagogic adjustments that can be made quickly but to significant effect. Student expectations will lead to a demand for new pedagogies, imaginative technical solutions, innovative teaching techniques and online support structures. Technology and support teams will be stretched to breaking point and faculty will necessarily, and rightly, play the leadership role in this work.'
Teachers will be of central importance in finding the new pedagogies and making them work, he argues. Hopefully, the Directions in Legal Education conference will contribute to the conversation about what these new pedagogies might be.
