The Asian Journal of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (AJSoTL) is an international, peer-reviewed, open-access, online journal. AJSoTL seeks to create and nurture a global network of academics and educators who will discuss ongoing changes and future trends in tertiary education.
"There is a lot of hope and misunderstanding around online learning and its relation to in-person learning ... it isn't an either-or proposition, but rather that the most likely future is one in which online experiences enrich the physical ones and vice versa ... educators, parents, and learners can move us all to a world where technology makes the classroom more human, not less.

Words open the soul’s window to ideas and the discourse of words is how we grope our way to conversation and, when conversation can be stripped of its inequalities and hidden hegemonies, how we eventually become capable of cooperation, of common life with others, and even of justice.

If I had long been reading the face of the world with the eyes of a writer, I now read it anew with even greater intensity. Nothing was too petty to escape my attention. If I went for a walk -- and I was constantly seeking excuses to take a walk, “to explore,” as I put it -- it was for the deliberate purpose of transforming myself into an enormous eye. Seeing the common, everyday things in this new light I was often transfixed. The moment one gives close attention to anything, even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnified world in itself. Almost an “unrecognizable” world. Miller, H. (1964). Henry Miller on writing. Selected by Thomas H. Moore. New York: New Directions.
