2015 my proposal to the UoB's Compact Outreach Operations Group was accepted and I was awarded a second tranche of funding, this time of £27,000.   I led a team of BBS Colleagues in the development of a new online course, using my previous knowledge and experience of designing and preparing online materials and their expertise and subject knowledge for a specific business theme. Our results were presented and published at the European Conference for E-Learning.
