Reflections on the Black Lives Matter Movement
Author and educator, Angela Provitera McGlynn, has long been concerned with equity and justice, having written about it extensively. It’s no surprise that she had some reflections during this monumental time. She offers us an essay in which she states:
Black Lives Matter is not merely a moment in time; it is a movement with the potential to be transformative. The systemic racism that spurred people to protest is built into the very fabric of all our institutions through policies, practices, and laws....
It will take much more than “reform” to eradicate the hundreds of years of oppression and unequal opportunity. It will take big structural changes, reparations, and dismantling and rebuilding.

EXTRAORDINARY NEEDS IN EDUCATION
Online Teaching & Diversity
As educational institutions struggle with issues about opening for the fall and how exactly that might look, we have texts that will support and facilitate those changes. Our selection of Online Teaching and Learning books have been the basis for many distance educators.
Also, we have had a focus on Diversity in education for a long while. We have texts which help educators sensitively approach issues, along with in class techniques that encourage student openness and exploration.
Supporting Educators & Independent Voices
As a help during these extraordinary times, through the month of September, we will offer these Online Teaching and Diversity titles at 40% off.
This is a wonderful teachable moment. We as educators have the opportunity and skills to further the cause of diversity and to help facilitate what might be difficult topics. Consider these titles as you plan your approach.

Case Studies Series
Experiential Learning is one of the exciting topics discussed in education right now. Bill Timpson has long been an advocate. To share that with others who are considering including Experiential Learning in their classrooms, Bill and colleagues have created a Case Studies Series. You'll find all you need to start incorporating Experiential Learning in your new classes.
Our classic title, Distance Leaners in Higher Education, is now available as Open Access. It is the book that informed much of current practice in distance teaching and learning.
And, how has a title stayed so current for so long? Perhaps, it is because it focuses not on the phenominal technology that proliferates so rapidly, but on the human dimension of the teaching/learning process.
Educators continue to weigh the technology in relation to good teaching practices. This book paved the way for that continuing conversation.
