Main Article Content

Zachary Simpson


In this editorial, journal editor-in-chief, Zach Simpson, introduces the peer-reviewed articles and reflections in Volume 4, Issue 2 of the SOTL in the South journal. These papers, Zach argues, each reimagine aspects of higher education: the classroom, the curriculum, the role of SOTL and so on. In addition, the editorial addresses the current (at the time of publication) coronavirus pandemic afflicting the world, arguing that COVID-19 is not only deepening inequalities between the global North and South, but also rendering SOTL ever more important.
