Call for Papers: Special Issue on Dealing with Online and Blended Education in Modern Challenging Times

IIM Calcutta is glad to present the first Conference on “Dealing with Online and Blended Education in Modern Challenging Times,” in collaboration with the Indian Institute of Management Calcutta’s flagship journal DECISION (Springer Nature).

DECISION is a Transformative Journal (TJ). When research is accepted for publication, authors can choose to publish using either the traditional publishing route OR via immediate gold Open Access.

The one-day conference offers a global venue to discuss issues, challenges, and impacts of online teaching-learning alongside the consequences of using hybrid education systems in a pandemic-affected world. The conference shall focus on themes related to multiple stakeholders and educational outcomes across all levels of education: pre-schooling, primary and secondary schooling, vocational and technical education, and tertiary education and engage in debates around education for practitioner scholars. 

However, the webinar will start with a keynote Speech and end with Panel Discussion on;

  • educational challenges faced in a pandemic-ridden world,
  • the role of Online and Blended Education, and
  • essential policies/programs used to curb them.

The sudden outbreak of COVID-19 has challenged the education system across the world and forced educators to shift to an online mode of teaching. The main question that arises is whether online learning and, in recent times, hybrid as well as blended learning acts as a panacea during the COVID-19 crisis or not? Both the initiatives of blended and hybrid learning are similar educational approaches, but they differ in the sense that blended learning involves a ratio and combination of both offline and online learning whereas hybrid learning focuses on seeking an individual’s preference of participation either online or in person, thus promoting the best experience for the learner and maintaining a flexible balance as per the learner needs.
