This case study explores the response we developed to move our teaching to a hybrid model as a consequence of traditional lectures in our Business School no longer being possible. In a three month period we had to plan and implement a teaching and learning strategy for delivering hundreds of modules across a variety of undergraduate and postgraduate courses, where physical attendance was limited and in most cases was not possible at all. Our approach used Networked Learning, Garrison’s Community of Inquiry model and a design approach derived from Diana Laurrilard’s conversational framework. This analysis reveals how educational frameworks, strategies and theories can be rapidly applied to change the practices, customs and traditions that have long existed in the academy.
