Tayyaba Zia, a Research Associate at Oxford Business College, recently participated in a research conference aimed at examining the Challenges and Prospects of Business Education in a Post Covid-19 World.
The conference, which took place on Wednesday, July 7, was hosted by ON Research, the Research Platform of the EU Business School.
Tayyaba presented a research paper, co-authored by Dr Fayyaz Qureshi and Sarwar Khawaja, which examined how satisfied mature students have been with online teaching during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The paper was an important project designed to help all higher education organisations understand how mature students connect with digital learning platforms. The findings of the paper have already informed the approach Oxford Business College will take in order to help mature students get the most out of learning.
Congratulations to Tayyaba for her presentation. If you are interested in reading the research paper, you can see it in the European Journal of Education Studies, just go to https://oapub.org/edu/index.php/ejes/article/view/3440/6076.
