Over the past year, I have served as Multiliteracies Department Editor for the Journal and Adolescent and Adult Literacy (JAAL). You can review the work that we have produced and the accompanying video interviews through this thread.
Modifying pedagogy across time, place, path, & pace
For the fifth column, I worked with my colleague and friend Kristy Pytash to discuss opportunities for hybrid and blended learning in K through higher education. We recently published a chapter on literacy instruction & learning in virtual, blended, and hybrid environments. After publishing the chapter, we were involved in a webinar produced by the MVLRI. In this webinar, we had a series of questions from participants who were trying to understand the challenges and opportunities in virtual and hybrid learning. To help guide educators, Kristy and I decided to collaborate again and write this column.
In this post, we’re sharing the manuscript that was submitted for publication. Please feel free to review the Google Doc below and leave comments in the text. Please also feel free to share widely. We included submitted feedback in our revisions to the publisher before finalizing the manuscript.
As a multimodal supplement to the column, I assembled a group of experts and asked them four questions each about the column. You can review the videos below, and click through to learn more about each of the interviews.
