Hybrid Pedagogy: An open-access journal of learning, teaching, and technology

Primer: Digital Pedagogy

This is the first in a series of primers from Hybrid Pedagogy. These are not intended as definitive collections, not exclusively the best articles on a given subject, and not simply the highlights. What we offer is a series of rabbit holes for readers to fall down, one point of entry to a subject we’ve explored (and are continuing to explore) on the pages of the journal. Our hope is that these primers don’t close down a topic but remain dynamic, offering a snapshot, while also encouraging continuing questions and exploration.

What is Digital Pedagogy?

Digital Pedagogy is precisely not about using digital technologies for teaching and, rather, about approaching those tools from a critical pedagogical perspective. So, it is as much about using digital tools thoughtfully as it is about deciding when not to use digital tools, and about paying attention to the impact of digital tools on learning.

Featured Digital Pedagogy Articles

These selections highlight the best discourse about digital pedagogy from the journal’s archives.
