The Pandemic and Social Science Approaches to Teaching and Learning

edited by  Maheshvari Naidu, Vivian Ojong

Undoubtedly, Covid-19 caused major disruptions in several realms of human life. Not least affected is higher education. New modes of learning, teaching and research had to be introduced to avoid a total shutdown of this crucial function of society. Educational institutions around the world had to devise ways and means to carry on with their core business of teaching, learning and research that could not be delayed due to the restrictions imposed by Covid-19. The arrival of this timely compendium makes its mark in this context.

Focusing on the Social Sciences, the contributions in this volume show how an unexpected eventuality of a social situation can be handled and how teaching, learning and research are managed in the new situation. Through creative, innovative and transformative pedagogical approaches, academics are able to handle the situation quite successfully. The models and the examples presented in the book have applications in both pandemic and post-pandemic contexts. Although evidence is drawn from a single higher learning institution in South Africa, the findings have significance in other contexts.
