EDITORIAL FOR SPECIAL ISSUE OF DISTANCE EDUCATION. Web-based learning technologies have greatly expanded open, flexible, and distance educational environments. Alongside this growth, efforts need to be made to meet the needs of diverse learners and increase our capacity for diversity, in all of its forms. While it might be tempting to think that online environments are inherently more accommodating to diversity, Barbour and Reeves (2009) argued that the factors that make a student successful using learning technologies are often connected to socioeconomic privilege. Moreover, the recent COVID-19 pandemic has taught us that smooth transitions to online and distance learning are for those with resources, while most students have experienced considerable stress and anguish just finding a place where they could log on to the Internet or even a convenient way to communicate with their instructors. Most of what schools were doing could not even be called online or distance learning, with such terms as emergency or the milder remote learning applied instead (Hodges et. al., 2020). In proposing this issue, we intended to open a space for research and theory that considered, or even challenged, notions of diversity in a critical frame. The issue was to be a venue for scholars, researchers, instructional designers, and classroom teachers to engage with critical theories and diversity in open, flexible, and technology-mediated distance learning environments. We wanted to broaden the conversation about online and distance learning research, practice, and even policy about how to make learning with technologies accessible, relevant, and supportive of multiple intersectional identities. We realized that opening such a space would require us to find authors who were not merely studying diverse individuals, but who were engaging with the nuance and complexities of challenges faced by different groups. We invited submissions that considered a wide variety of technologies, pedagogies, modes, and settings (e.g., K-12, higher education, and industry or corporate settings). In addition, we encouraged submissions that represented a range across multiple intersecting theoretical landscapes. This included, but was not limited to, critical race theory, critical pedagogies, disability studies, feminisms, heutagogy, and LGBTQIA+ studies. Five articles were rigorously peer-reviewed and selected for inclusion in this issue. Ideas that cut across these theories consist of democratization, encounters, and openness.
