This conference examines different cultures of teaching and learning from across disciplines. Whether we are teaching design studio, large lectures, interactive seminars, lab classes or workshops, the way we operate has been fundamentally challenged in recent months. Taking as its starting point the move to online education across the world in 2020, this event seeks to explore the lessons different disciplines and their modes of teaching have across discipline boundaries.

CALL SUMMARY – ONLINE EDUCATION
Recent events have brought into full light the various agendas around online education and research. As universities, schools and colleges closed across the world in 2020, teachers and students adapted to new pedagogical tools. Some educational establishments survived, others thrived, while some struggled and have already gone ‘out of business’. For some disciplines, the transition was seamless. Other disciplines writhed at having to forego the peer-to-peer learning environment of the classroom or the dynamic interaction of the design studio. Despite the ‘shock of the new’ all this represented, the virtual classroom, online studio, remote seminar, and distance education more generally, are far from new. Universities like Purdue in the US and the Open University have been operating this way for years.
This conference brings together education professionals and theorists with teachers and researchers from other disciplines. It asks, what is the “new present” for education and how do we learn from each other’s expertise and recent experiences.
