How will we remember 2021? The year of COVID-19 (variant Delta) and what it meant to oneself, one’s family, community, life, work, even country?. Maybe if we are in educational settings - school, community centre, or higher education institution (HEI) - for its transformative effect on teaching methods, market appeal, loss of income and insecurity of employment?
DVV International supported research on the development of ALE (Adult Learning and Education) in the Central Asian Countries of Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan in 2020 during the time of the COVID 19 pandemic. National consultants in each of the three countries cooperated with a team of international experts, and they all worked along a common outline which was prepared as part of the project development. In addition to the country studies a comparative synthesis review was prepared also. Full versions of the country and the regional reports are available from DVV international.
We are seeking abstracts on this theme for a proposed Special Issue of Learning and Teaching: the International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences. Despite widespread concern about the impacts of precarity in higher education, the casualisation of academic staff involved in teaching continues apace in many International contexts.
