Distance Learning MA Children’s Literature – Virtual Open Day

Our third Virtual Open Day for the MA in Children’s Literature by distance learning was held last Thursday. Individuals from the UK to Azerbaijan joined Laura Atkins and I for a fun event to learn more about the programme and the NCRCL.

Alison Waller talking about the Children's Literature MA by distance learning

We introduced everyone to the team and demonstrated the different teaching methods and tools on the MA. Laura spoke about some of the methods available, including ‘British Children’s Literature 1900-1960’, ‘Visual Texts’ and the new creative ‘Writing for a Child Audience’ module.
