Key lessons for improving distance education… or rethinking face-to-face pedagogy

Most of the distance education practices capitalised on in this document were put in place in the context of the crisis linked to the COVID 19 pandemic. An almost ‘forced’ transition to e-learning led PARTAGE RISE member organisations to innovate by inventing new ways of doing things to provide responses and ensure continuity of learning.

  • This period has demonstrated the capacity of PARTAGE RISE members to adapt to a new context; to rethink their pedagogy and to propose original solutions. One can speak of a real “pedagogical resilience”.
  • This period was also a period of intense learning for all: teachers, parents, children. Everyone at their own level showed adaptation, capacity for change and creativity. All of these elements were crucial in adapting the learning arrangements.

The lessons, know-how and interpersonal skills developed during this period, but also discovered during the capitalisation, can be reused to define or enrich new teaching strategies.

They will allow :

  • To be better equipped to face possible crises (improve or set up proposals and distance education systems);
  • To renew pedagogical practices in the classroom, based on the rediscovery of distance education, which forces us to rethink education and the place of children.
