It is not possible to go back to the traditional learning environments and methods that had survived the accelerated development of various technologies during the 20th century but proved to be incapable to face the COVID-19 crisis. This has forced almost all global educational systems to switch to remote distance learning in spring, 2020 in just one week.
This collection of the articles is about bridging the face-to-face teaching and innovative learning environments. Moving back to face-to-face teaching in classroom settings and trying to forget previous lessons learnt has been somewhat confusing to teachers.
Despite this, they have, with extraordinary speed, managed to develop new digital competencies to make high-quality teaching and learning possible.
Hybrid learning in educational settings might be the new normal in the coming years when we put together the best of face-to-face and online teaching methods and shift the emphasis from the classroom to a supportive learning environment, wherever this is located.
