10 Questions with Academics

By Studying the Past

10 Questions with Academics gives insight into how MQ academics navigated the challenges of working from home during the COVID-19 lockdown, March-June 2020.

As education institutions moved to a new era of online teaching, our short and snappy profiles of academics and Higher Degree Researchers are directed at assisting students navigate the new world of independent learning.
