Mapping the uncertain landscape of education in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, Digital Learning in Higher Education examines how Higher Education (HE) institutions have moved to widespread digital learning in an effort to maintain the educational experience. The book navigates the possibilities that lie ahead, exploring the beginnings of a new future for HE.

Reflections from HE practitioners on this rapid transition to digital and remote learning offer key perspectives on the new online learning mode, as experienced by students, teaching staff, and those in the wider field of education, including learning technologists, librarians, and publishers. Spurred on by the changes in thinking necessitated by the pandemic, the book highlights the possibilities facilitated by online learning, from enhanced inclusivity to making education accessible to wider audiences. It concludes with a proposal for how we might “build back better” and continue to evolve the sector.

Timely and comprehensive, this book will support the pedagogical decision-making of HE practitioners both now and in the future. Offering an insight into what the “new normal” of education may soon resemble, it will also be beneficial to HE management and other educational professionals, helping to guide their policy and financial decision-making processes regarding digital technology.
