The first Virtual Open Day for the MA in Children’s Literature took place last week and was a great success. The Open Day was a chance for everyone to find out more about the distance learning programme and the way we teach here at the NCRCL.
Liz Thiel and I really enjoyed trying out the University’s new conferencing software, which allowed us to talk directly to participants from across the UK, but also from Germany, Italy, Greece, Cyprus, Japan, and Mexico! It was also great to be able to answer questions and show everyone some of the excellent online resources available at Roehampton, and Liz had fun giving a mini tutorial on Mary Sherwood’s The History of the Fairchild Family.
