Introducing study groups

In this course, you have the opportunity to join a study group. In your study group you will learn together with around 80 other learners who joined the group around the same time as you – most of them will comment, reply and like though some may choose to just read the conversation.

You will use the study group to discuss themes or topics from each week. We know learning in groups is a powerful way to share knowledge, experience and perspectives. Through learning in this way we create new ideas and deeper understanding than we would learning alone.

The course mentors will occasionally be present in study groups, providing guidance and feedback as the course progresses. We’ll also give you many opportunities to share the outcomes of your study group discussion with us and the rest of the learners on the course.

Study groups are optional though we highly recommend joining one to make the most of this course. If you wish to leave a group then you can do so by selecting on ‘leave group’ on the top right of the study group page. Once you have left a group you can join another group at any time.

In the group, please follow the code of conduct as you do on the rest of FutureLearn.
