Philip Moriarty (University of Nottingham) shared his experience of taking a second year quantum mechanics module online, for which the asynchronous content (notes, videos, simulations, and blog posts) was complemented by live engagement sessions involving multiple choice conceptual questions and the PINGO audience response tool.

We had summaries of some of the necessary changes to practical work: Jonathan Taylor (University of Glasgow) and Viktor Tsepelin (University of Lancaster) reflected on the limitations on lab space and the digital tools used to recreate labs their in Year 2 and Year 3 labs in consecutive presentations.
