Keywords:the COVID-19 pandemic, critical change, teaching and learning, online learning, educational change
Undoubtedly, the entire globe is in the middle of a transition process owing to the forced impact of the COVID-19 pandemic that has urged us to change radically and critically. Motivated by the need to understand ongoing changes, this editorial intends to surface crucial issues that can possibly impact and shape the educational landscape and its future. In this sense, this editorial sees the COVID-19 pandemic as a triggering event and explores issues that are significant for educational systems. In essence, the normal as we knew it was problematic and the crisis that emerged with the COVID-19 pandemic can be an opportunity to transform the educational systems that were accustomed to rigid structures.
