What level is the course and do I need any particular skills?
Level 1 is introductory. Studying via Zoom can be challenging but we ask that students come willing to draw on their own experiences and be open to those of other students. You will need to be a fluent speaker of English, be able to listen and respond to others and take part in discussions. If you want to be considered for the next level you will need to write about your experiences in a learning journal and read some recommended texts. Please note: there is no automatic progression to Level 2.
How will I be taught, and will there be any work outside the class?
The emphasis is on learning through experience. There will be exercises in pairs and in threes, small groups and the large group. There will also be tutor input and handouts provided. You'll be asked to keep a 500-word journal focusing on your learning, reflection and deepening self awareness. Towards the end of the course, you will be asked to produce a short piece of creative work which summarises your learning on the course.
Are there any other costs? Is there anything I need to bring?
You will be given some handouts but you will need to bring your own pen and notebook. You will need to have access to your own computer and private, uninterrupted space to be able to able to fully participate on Zoom.
