As a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic that hit the entire globe in early 2020, most governments introduced crisis-management measures including “stay-at-home” orders. Such orders have affected, among others, schools and universities. Several governments introduced digital learning offers as a solution to enable students to continue learning from home. In this mini-track, we are interested in research that contributes to the understanding of digital learning systems and practices, not only, but in particular during pandemics such as COVID-19. We are also interested in topics related to the societal impact of learning, digital learning usage, and digital learning platforms on all members of society. We also encourage papers that provide measurable outcomes related to the technology usage in learning and support of improving teaching and learning. Our mini-track aims towards deriving best practices and guidelines for decision-makers, institutions, government officers, and other stockholders to reach inclusive, effective, and productive digital learning.
We welcome submissions, both as full research papers and research in progress. Submissions could include theory development, literature reviews, or practical teaching cases from various research traditions, including qualitative, quantitative, mixed methods, or design science.
