Special Extended Course Run: Note on Reduced-Facilitated Status

Explanatory note re. the reduced-facilitation status of this extended course.

On this special extended version of the course (following the end of the most recent regular run on Sunday 17th May 2020) the Educators will not be monitoring the course as closely as usual and will have limited capacity to respond to individual comments and queries.

Please note also that there will not be any Live Stream sessions during this extension, however links to recordings of previous sessions have been included for your benefit.

The course encourages the development of a strong learning community. The learning is focussed around debate and discussion – supporting other learners, sharing your own experience and knowledge, and listening to new perspectives. We hope that you will enjoy interacting with and learning from each other in this way.

Don’t forget to comment, reply to other learners and ‘like’ comments!
