This presentation discusses the impacts of COVID-19 on the teaching of an actuarial studies course at the Australia National University over the years 2020-2023. Some of the strategies used to engage the class in learning and critical skill development for the actuarial profession are critically discussed. Options are now apparent around the teaching approach for this course into the future, with various factors needing to be balanced. These include the need for the course to be regularly updated for current and recent events and professional developments, the need to meet core syllabus aims required by the professional body (Actuaries Institute), and the opportunities with and characteristics of the typical cohort of students that pursue actuarial studies. Thoughts and options are presented, with feedback very welcome around potential best or improved practice.
