The Institute for Education’s Second Annual Symposium 2021 focuses on the topic of ‘Technology Enhanced & Remote Teaching & Learning’. In the current educational context, where we have grappled with issues and challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, this topic and Symposium are particularly timely and relevant. The papers presented here form an extremely valuable set of contributions that not only place and recognise the work that has been undertaken during the COVID-19 pandemic, but also identify important key features that are pertinent to a next phase, moving forward beyond this period of crisis. In considering this next phase, I believe it is important to consider features of the past (the potential for technology enhanced teaching and learning), as well as outcomes of the present (what has shifted and resulted during the COVID-19 pandemic) and needs for the future (how we can take forward lessons from our current understandings and experiences).
