Flexible Learning in Uncertain Times: The Hy-Flex Model in Response to COVID-19
Keynote Presentation: Brian Beatty & Barbara Lockee

The disruption of educational systems caused by the COVID-19 pandemic has left institutions of higher education scrambling in response. How might we plan for an uncertain future in which our teaching methods, assessment strategies, and modes of delivery may need to shift, perhaps multiple times during each term? This session will explore a potential solution offered by the Hy-Flex Model (Hybrid-Flexible), an instructional design approach to address continuity of instruction, based on the premise of student choice. IAFOR Vice President for Education, Barbara Lockee, will interview Brian Beatty, the creator of the Hy-Flex Model, to learn more about this innovative approach to flexible learning design as a means to address the needs of students and educators alike in these unpredictable times.

Inclusive Education: A Critical Dialogue on Marginalised Communities
Panel Presentation: Kwame Akyeampong, Christine Callender, Tam Cane, Farish A. Noor, Tamsin Hinton-Smith & Krisna Uk

In recent months, both the COVID-19 pandemic and the Black Lives Matter movement have been lenses through which to wider and global underlying issues of societal inequality and iniquity. While acknowledging the situation specific aspects to movements, BLM has caught the global imagination, underlining and reflecting the differences in privilege, power, resources, and access to education of poor and marginalised communities throughout the world, which have only been highlighted by the global pandemic, and the stark differences in access to education. This plenary panel will bring together a diverse group of educators to discuss inclusive education, and people’s experiences of access to, and participation in education, and the structures and cultures that encourage and nurture, or conversely discourage and inhibit.

Panelists:
Kwame Akyeampong, University of Sussex, United Kingdom
Christine Callender, UCL Institute of Education, United Kingdom
Tam Cane, University of Sussex, United Kingdom
Farish A. Noor, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore

The Future of People
Keynote Presentation: Zachary Walker

The current world is in a state of disquietude and confusion. The Covid-19 pandemic has plunged the world economy into a realm of deep uncertainty which, in turn, has led to major social and political disruptions, as demonstrated by the Black Lives Matter movement. While public and private institutions and organisations look to the future and search for the “new normal” in the post-pandemic world, there is growing need to consider new ways of teaching and working. This talk will focus on people: what can we learn from history, what are we learning now, and what we should consider for the future.

Embracing Difference? Adaptive Lifelong Learning
Panel Presentation: Thanassis Rikakis, Joseph Haldane & Anne Boddington

This panel will address the theme of the sustainable growth of the 21st century knowledge economy, and how dependent it is upon the inclusion and adaptive personal and professional growth of a very high number of diverse knowers. Inclusion through adaptive lifelong learning is the subject of a report to be co-published in August 2020 by Virginia Tech, IAFOR and the Future Talent Council. The report will lead to the launch of international working groups (spanning industry and academia) that will begin to translate the recommendations of the report into action.

Creating a Motivating School: Considerations and Challenges
Keynote Presentation: Liu Woon Chia

In recent years, Singapore’s education system has received international recognition due to our students’ high performance in internationally benchmarked tests such as the Trends in Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS), Progress International Reading Literacy Study (PIRLS) and Progress for International Student Assessment (PISA). Despite the stellar achievements, there are concerns that Singapore’s students may be too focused on academic grades, and not enjoying their learning. This led to Mr Ng Chee Meng, Immediate-Past Minister of Education (Schools), Singapore, to highlight the importance of nurturing a joy of learning in our students in his parliamentary speech. He noted that school should be a place where students can enjoy learning and acquire knowledge and skills, not just be about doing well in exams. To create a motivating school and promote joy of learning, we must have a clear understanding of students’ motivation, and a focus on teachers who are at the frontline of our education system.

Using Singapore as the context and the self-determination theory as the theoretical basis, the first part of the address will focus on students’ motivational profiles to determine whether there are good and bad motivation(s), and what can be done to encourage good motivations, if they exist. The second part of the address will take a closer look at teachers. In particular, we will look at some of the antecedents of teachers’ motivating style, and how that might impact any intervention on student motivation. Research findings will be shared, together with challenges and considerations for policy makers, school leaders and educators.

The Impact of COVID-19 on Children and Young People Across the Globe
Panel Presentation: Jo Van Herwegen, Andrea Samson, Jake Anders & Keri Wong

COVID-19 is not just a global health crisis, it also has numerous social and psychological repercussions. This panel discussion will focus on the impact of COVID-19 on children and young people across the world, in terms of their education and wellbeing. What have been the main difficulties for children and young people across the globe? Are there any differences between nations or regions in the world? What is the impact of COVID-19 on the education and wellbeing of children and young people across the world and are certain groups, such as those with special educational needs and from low-income backgrounds, at greater risk?

The panel will feature experts who have been leading large national and international surveys that have examined these questions.

Speakers:

Jo Van Herwegen, UCL (University College London), United Kingdom
Andrea Samson, Institute of Special Education – University of Fribourg & Swiss Distance University Institute (Unidistance), Switzerland
Jake Anders, Centre for Education Policy and Equalising Opportunities, UCL Institute of Education, United Kingdom

That’s NOT Online Learning!: The Difference Between Emergency Remote Teaching and Online Learning
Panel Presentation: Barbara Lockee, Charles B. Hodges & Joseph Haldane

Over the past few months, and in many countries across the world, millions of classes have been forced to move online as schools, colleges and universities have grappled with how to continue to deliver a continued service in times of COVID-19. With very little time to prepare, teachers and students have been forced to adapt to the cancellation of face-to-face classes and use such technologies as Zoom to deliver education. The speed and scale of this move has been unprecedented but this panel will discuss how many are failing to see that this is for the most part emergency remote teaching, and not reflective of what “online learning” really is, in its design, tools, development, and student and faculty support and therefore quality and delivery.

Multi-Competence, Translanguaging and Multimodal Learning
Keynote Presentation: Li Wei

This is a conceptual paper that aims to extend the concept of Linguistic Multi-Competence and advance Translanguaging as a research perspective (in addition to pedagogical approach). It focuses on the theoretical foundations of Translanguaging and explores the implications for language teaching and learning in particular and for bilingualism and multilingualism research generally. Core issues such as the role of L1, transfer, learner autonomy, will be revisited from the Translanguaging perspective. Empirical examples from self-directed mobile language learning will be used to demonstrate the added value of the Translanguaging approach.
