Keywords:Digital learning, e-learning, fourth industrial revolution, covid19, commentary
The COVID-19 pandemic has posed significant global challenges in all spheres of our daily lives. A challenge for the higher education sector is to ensure its core function of learning and teaching remains operational. This paper views the pandemic through an encouraging lens. It highlights some opportunities that the pandemic has brought about for radiography educators and other health science disciplines, from a South African radiography educator’s perspective. The opportunities are related to professional development and lifelong learning, role change, and student-centeredness.
