The pandemic context is reconfiguring the boundaries of the act of teaching and learning, leading teachers and learners to build adapted forms. The notion of device (in the sense of “dispositif”), as it is usually mobilized, no longer seems to reflect the reality of practices. It must be reinterrogated to go beyond what is prescribed by the educational institution, considering the hybridization of social spaces-time and digital devices, which favors the emergence of the learner’s personal environment of proximity learning (EPAP). This EPAP mobilizes formal and non-formal dimensions through which the learner organizes his or her activities taking into account his or her capacities and constraints.
