Poster summary

Ascribed to the global pandemic, most higher education (HE) institutions responded by relocating content presented using contact sessions to an online platform giving rise to digital pedagogy. This study aimed to explore emerging challenges linked to digital pedagogy from a practitioner's stance. Digital pedagogy has emerged as a powerful tool to complement traditional methods. However, stumbling blocks should be identified and addressed for future utilization. This study used an in-depth semi-structured interview as the primary qualitative research method. Results revealed that institutional type influenced the implementation of digital pedagogy. Other challenges include the increased cost of education, decreased access, limited knowledge about digital pedagogy, behavioral intent to adopt a multi-modal approach, and lack of ICT infrastructure.
