Each week we will cover technical ideas and creative thoughts, setting students an exciting practical assignment. Our objective is to replicate a physical weekly college style course using modern information technology and on-line conferencing, it will be live with your tutor and not a video. With only a small class of 8 students per course and frequent opportunities to discuss your work individually with your tutor, we hope every participant will feel supported through this process. We will also encourage support and idea sharing amongst the class, creating a rich and friendly learning environment.
