Episode 10 – Suddenly distant: Reflections on delivering a history conference online

Corinna Peniston-Bird from the Department of History at Lancaster University reflects upon how she and her colleague Mark Hurst from the History Department rapidly moved a postgraduate taught student conference to be delivered remotely.

Corinna’s reflections provide some insights into good practices and considerations for running remote conferences no matter the subject or discipline.

Steps were taken in order to ensure access and inclusivity so as to ensure the programme’s learning outcomes were met in a sound way while creating a positive experience for students despite the sudden shift to online caused by coronavirus Covid19.
