Abstract

Distance or online learning is more than simply uploading and delivering learning resources to learnersbut in fact, it is a process that provides learners with autonomy, responsibility, flexibility and choice. Thiscan be a challenge for many academic teachers. In 2020, as universities globally shifted to onlinelearning, in response to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, a variety of staff have supportedcolleagues to develop e-learning techniques ‘just-in-time’ for effective delivery to students in fully onlineplatforms. This has required a transformation of educational development and faculty support globally.This paper will reflect on mechanisms of support demonstrating tailored staff support to transformeducation in three case scenario contexts, during the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in three differentcountries. Our case studies illustrate that support lies beyond technological capability building to alsoincorporate the essentials of holistic well-being and resilience reinforcement. This paper demonstratestemporary solutions to a global crisis in online education and reflects on lessons learnt and how e-teaching and e-learning support may transform beyond the pandemic.
