Children’s Literature MA by distance learning – Virtual Open Day

We recently held another Virtual Open Day for the MA in Children’s Literature by distance learning here at the NCRCL. Individuals from across the UK, Europe and from as far as China and Pakistan joined Liz Thiel and I for a fun event to learn more about the programme and the NCRCL.

We introduced everyone to the team and showed off some of our excellent online children’s literature resources. Liz also had fun giving a mini-tutorial on Mary Sherwood’s The History of the Fairchild Family.

Many thanks to all those who took part – and look out for more events in the future!
