Higher Learning Research Communications

We are pleased to publish the first regular issue of Higher Learning Research Communications (HLRC), which follows the Special Issue, Implications of COVID-19 on Higher Education. The pandemic continues to impact higher education; in many parts of the world, it is still resulting in classes being held remotely, while in other regions, classrooms are slowly reopening to face-to-face or hybrid instruction. As the manuscripts in the special issue, as well as those in the current issue, reflect, the implications of the pandemic on higher education will be far-reaching. We continue to encourage authors to submit empirical research and essays that document ways that higher education will be different as we emerge from the pandemic. The focus of the HLRC is on issues whose importance has been magnified by the pandemic, including digital teaching and learning, higher education and the public good, and the preparation of students in key 21st-century employability skills.
