In this episode, Steven Young and Sandra Nolte from the Department of Accounting & Finance at the Lancaster University Management School talk about the how they considered potential problems that moving dissertation teaching online might pose. The result: they changed teaching sessions for the dissertation to ensure equity and a smooth experience as possible for students given the sudden issues caused by Covid19.

Underlying their successes is a discussion of the importance of clear communication, keeping all staff abreast of potential problems and solutions and the need to form close working relationships with educational technologists. Through working together within these close relationships, program and course/module-specific solutions can be created which highlights the need to work less in silos and more collaboratively.
