Call for book chapters: – "Elearning and the Transformation of Education Post COVID-19"

Vernon Press invites book chapter proposals for an edited collection on “Elearning and the Transformation of Education Post COVID-19". ICERI2022, November 7 to 9, was one of the first “masks out” and truly international events about research on the technology of education after the pandemic. As such, many of the communications registered changes that were triggered or magnified by the confinement of students and teachers during the pandemic’s peak period of 2020-21. The scope of these changes is broad but focuses mostly on eLearning, the use of technologies in education, distributed pedagogy approaches, data-driven practices, and open educational policies.

It is a contend of many researchers and practitioners, including this book’s editors, that COVID-19 accelerated a transformation of educational systems that already was taking place during the initial decades of the twenty-first century. Namely, the emergence and now prevalence of learning through electronic and digital media, commonly termed eLearning; a change that is here to stay and become deeper with the advancement of the Century. This transformation is particularly significant for Higher Education, Continuing Education, and Corporate Training; therefore, students, teachers, and researchers in these areas are the main clientele for this book.
