This essay and accompanying video explore the concept of the unseen as a posthuman position and its impact on teaching and learning. It theorises how the COVID-19 pandemic and virtual learning environments have revealed previously unseen aspects of students' lives, such as their working spaces and home environments. Drawing on posthuman philosophy and the rhizome metaphor to consider the complex and interconnected nature of the unseen, the essay discusses how awareness of the unseen is crucial for effective teaching. This essay also describes the development of the short film Unseen, which was inspired by my own unseen struggles whist trying to develop a presentation for the Association of Visual Pedagogies twitter conference. The film is an invitation to consider unseen aspects of your own life that may affect your learning and teaching, with an extended invitation to engage in further shared thinking via Padlet.
