Authentic Learning in Distance Education Special Issue

This issue of the TechTrends, is a special issue guest edited by Victoria L. Lowell and Linda L. Campion on the topic of authentic learning via distance education. They have put together a great issue for you containing eleven papers. Their Guest Editors’ Notes provides a detailed introduction to the issue. I appreciate the months of hard work and collaboration they did to make this issue a reality! I also appreciate the authors who submitted their work to the issue! With much of higher education in the world now shifting more toward online delivery of instruction due to the pandemic, the issue is appearing with amazingly good timing.

The issue also includes some of our regular columns. Be sure to read the Rethinking Technology & Creativity in the 21st, Graduate Member Musings, The History Corner, and Book Reviews. I hope you find the issue interesting!
