On 19th November I was given the opportunity to present the findings of a literature review I had undertaken in the barriers to online learning, and solutions to engage students in this mode of study. My paper had a particular focus on first year students. I gave an overview of the findings of the literature review, identifying the major barriers and then solutions. From there I reflected on the incorporation of some of the solutions into the subject that I had coordinated in first session of 2021. I identified the solutions I had chosen to implement, and then how that had progressed, and the feedback that was received from students. The information was well received, and the following speaker was able to build on the information that I had presented in their talk, on the use of media in online education. Attendees provided encouraging feedback, and I was asked to look at publishing the paper as a result of the presentation.
