Introduction

The Handbook of Research on Redesigning Teaching, Learning, and Assessment in the Digital Era will be a collection of research chapters that will provide insights into the transformation of education in the digital era. Recent evolutions, such as pervasive networking and other enabling technologies, have been increasingly changing human life, knowledge acquisition, and the way works are performed and students learn. In this societal change, educational institutions must maintain their leading role. Educational Institutions are increasingly concerned with customer satisfaction and loyalty. They have therefore embraced digitally enhanced learning, i.e., online and hybrid learning to provide increased flexibility and access for their students and increase their engagement. The purpose of this handbook of research is to respond to the needs of learners of any context and background, practitioners, educators, policymakers, administrators, program planners, educational managers, educational leaders, and researchers through relevant studies that include sound pedagogical and content knowledge. The newly-commissioned chapters of this book will link the theoretical understanding and practical experience of using technology-enhanced learning, teaching, and assessment, and will be a valuable contribution to the field of Education and Technology-Enhanced Learning.

Objective

Technology-enhanced learning explores how we learn, teach and assess with interactive technologies, and how we design and evaluate effective technologies for learning. It all started in the early 20th century with efforts to develop mechanical machines to automate the processes of teaching, learning, and assessment, leading in the later 20th century to computer-based teaching systems. The COVID-19 pandemic has caused both unprecedented disruptions and massive changes to education. Countries around the world have had to go into lockdown, leading to widespread school closures which required education to be delivered remotely. Remote education can take various forms, but in many contexts, it has relied on the use of digital technology. Education is experiencing a paradigm shift from passive learning towards active learning and a transition in the mode of delivery from face-to-face learning to online learning. The advent of a pandemic in the form of COVID-19 necessitated the transition towards technology-enhanced online learning. Remote, blended, and distance learning are the new normal for now. Student engagement and issues of social justice in education are always of central importance in the transition in the context of increasing demand for online and blended education. Promoting innovative teaching and assessment practices that cater to all learners’ needs and enhance students’ learning experience translates into higher academic performance. The purpose of this Handbook of Research is to gather the experiences of students and course educators in identifying effective online teaching, learning, and assessment strategies, including those developed in the post-Covid 19 era. The present handbook of research will focus on various perspectives aiming to make a scholarly contribution to the literature in the field of technology-enhanced learning, educational change, computer-mediated communication, and technology integration with efficient practices, approaches, and ideas for professional development.

Target Audience

The target audience of this book is researchers, practitioners, educators, teacher educators, policymakers, administrators, program planners, educational managers, educational leaders principals, higher education faculty, deans, curriculum developers, instructional designers, educational software developers, IT specialists, students, researchers, and academicians.
