As for many other disciplines, the abrupt move to online teaching a bit over a year ago forced us to rethink student engagement in our mathematics and statistics modules beyond the traditional whiteboard.

Whilst challenging, this has also been a unique opportunity for us to test tools and ideas that have been available for some time but were, perhaps, not considered seriously pre Covid.

In this presentation, I will discuss some practical tools and techniques that have been used over the past year to engage our students in the online learning environment. This includes the use of different types of quizzes, tablets, and online forums.

In addition to reporting on my own experience of advantages, disadvantages, scopes, and limitations, I will make some suggestions for future developments. In particular, I will be contemplating how the past year’s experiences can be used to enhance student engagement in mathematics and statistics learning once we return to face-to-face teaching.
