Working with students to develop Covid teaching plans – The student engagement experience in Biology

This session took place as part of the Learning and teaching @York in the Coronavirus Pandemic: Continuing the conversation (Autumn term 2020). The presenters were Richard Waites.


Richard provided an overview of attempts to improve communication and involve students directly in planning across the Biology Department. He highlighted large-scale online polling to ask students how they are getting on and elicit their feedback as a key element of the approach to establishing rapport, building trust between staff and the 1400 students in the Biology Department, and supporting staff in responding to student needs.
