Brookes Learning and Teaching Exhibition and Conference 2021

Re-imagining events

Jo Feehily, Oxford Brookes Business School
Co-exhibitors: Alan McBlane | Beverley Fulton | Sally Skea | Oxford Brookes Business School

A core feature of the Events Management programmes is students designing and delivering live events. We offer students real opportunities to compile a portfolio of skills and evidence of practice to aid employability. The team’s challenge in the last 12 months has been how to
maintain this core in a context where face-to-face events are not permitted. Our exhibition entry will showcase students’ re-imaginings of events in a virtual space; including examples from each year of the programme, plus student skills portfolios. Delegates will learn how the pandemic sparked innovation, and our response to the inclusivity challenges of teams.
