Knowledge, Learning, Community

I wonder whether we will in a few years ago be regretting what we will have come to call a 'lost opportunity' to redesign teaching and learning in the wake of the pandemic along (say) the lines described in this post. It will be a lost opportunity because the return to normal will be almost as abrupt and unpredictable as the shift to remote learning was in the first place. Yes, we could and should "create universities in which students have access to course and program materials at any time, and in which they are supported by teachers in pursuing their learning goals in a number of settings." But we won't. There's no time.
