Technology-mediated educational innovations in Latin American higher education institutions

This regional issue of the International Journal of Educational Technology in Higher Education invites critical scholarly works from researchers and innovative practitioners across Latin America. The call is aimed at addressing issues that affect Latin American higher education communities locally, regionally or globally. This initiative intends to foster dissemination of evidence-based educational innovations that make a difference in their context and build new opportunities upon technology-based avenues. It accepts strategic formal or non-formal post-secondary innovative learning experiences that benefit from digital technologies.
