Words like evolution, revolution, acceleration and change are often used to refer to what is happening and emerging in the (re)design of education. These days, hybrid practices and virtual practices involve the demolition of what we used to know as “normal” and with these forms the “old” model is being seriously questioned. Given these new scenarios in Education, it should be noted that “Pre-pandemic Education” refers to an idea connected with exhausted practices and to models to which we do not want to return. In order to recognize what is emerging today, we are forced to look at it from a complex perspective. With technological advances, the immersion in virtual and augmented reality on the one side, and the threatening issues that our world faces every day on the other side, we, the educators, need to start leaving content aside and start raising awareness on what lies ahead. We urgently need to create new models of work and give a collective meaning to action. There is no doubt all this leads to the configuration of new emerging teachings in all aspects. This workshop will show what must be done right now to be part of the change.
