Plenary with Sean Michael Morris: Teaching through the Screen and the Necessity of Imagination Literacy

If one thing has become clear since the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic it is that in the most dire situations, our imagination, our creativity, underpins our perseverance. Faculty, administrators, learning designers, students who have responded to this crisis with "what if?" instead of "what now?" have found innovative ways to deliver instruction, form community across distance, teach and learn and sustain education through the screen. The imagination is a critical literacy as much as it is an active agent in our answer to turning points and challenging situations. In this talk, Sean will explore how a pedagogy of imagination has supported, and can continue to sustain, the work of education during this crucial time.
