First let's commend ourselves: how in the midst of a pandemic we faculty stepped up at record speed to teach in such a foreign learning environment. Try we did, adapt we did, and learn we did. But to be clear, we already recognize this past spring was less about distance learning and more about crisis teaching.

This time around we have an opportunity to be much more purposeful and intentional, and that's where The Distance Learning Playbook for College and University Instruction will prove absolutely indispensable.

Much more than a collection of cool tools and apps, The Distance Learning Playbook for College and University Instruction mobilizes decades of Visible Learning® research to reveal those evidence-based strategies that work best in an online environment. Supplemented by video footage and opportunities to self-assess and reflect, the book addresses every dynamic that must be in place for students to learn, even at a distance:

• Faculty-student relationships from a distance

• Teacher credibility from a distance

• Teacher clarity from a distance

• Engaging tasks from a distance

• Planning learning experiences from a distance

• Feedback, assessment, and grading from a distance

• Keeping the focus on learning from a distance or otherwise

What does our post-COVID future hold? "We suspect" Fisher, Frey, Almarode, and Hattie write, "it will include increased amounts of distance learning. In the meantime, let's seize on what we have learned to improve post-secondary education in any format, whether face-to-face or from a distance."
