Between January 2020 and December 2022, COVID-19 has moved much higher education and many national and international conference presentations onto virtual platforms. This has enabled the gathering of digital visual data from a wide range of cultural and international contexts to be used in evidence and values-based explanations of how education influences learning. These data, including visual data, are from: symposia at the 2021 and 2022 American Educational Research Association with the themes of educational responsibility and equity; presentations at the 2021 and 2022 meetings of the Network Educational Action Research Ireland on “Critical Reflection in Educational Practice”; the 2022 Educational Studies Association of Ireland on “Why a focus on ‘What is educational’ matters so much in reconstructing education?”; and the 2022 Higher Education Learning and Teaching Association of South Africa on “Transforming practices in Higher Education through critical reflection.” The analysis of this data, using a method of empathetic resonance, clarifies and communicates the embodied expression of values of humanity. An Eastern Wisdom Tradition together with a Western Critical Theory Knowledge Tradition are included, within the generation of living-educational-theories, in improving educational practices within different international contexts, and in making original contributions to educational knowledge with values of human flourishing.
