When It Absolutely, Positively Has to Be Learning Online: Emic Reflections of Teacher – Student Resilience within an Australian Tertiary Pathways Landscape

Abstract

COVID-19 signalled an end to the free movement of international students to Australian tertiary institutions necessitating a paradigm shift away from conventional face to face teaching and the benefits of cultural and linguistic immersion for online learning. This paper draws on auto-ethnography to explore and evaluate the impact of this transformation upon the affective and teaching and learning domains of a teaching staff member and student at an Australian university college. By virtue of the global and multi-sited field, the discussants have assumed an emic perspective and positioned the research orientation across a hybrid of confessional and impressionist writing to enable an authentic personal style inclusive of emotive responses, the contingent, and unforeseen in concert with making visible the cultural locus, the researcher's insights, and ways of knowing their cultures. The purpose of the study is to inform audiences what happened in the field, share their respective teacher student experiences and to identify events and discoveries that were interesting and worthy of further research in areas of new forms of resilience encountered and expected within the field of international student online environments.
