Where is the course taking place?

The course will be taught online on Google Classroom. Learners will also be given access to reading materials and resources relevant to the course.

What resources will I need?

You will need a device with internet access, this could be a PC, Mac, Laptop, smart/iPhone, tablet/iPad. You will be given access to our Google Classroom where you may access the course resources such as handouts, images, recordings of videos and/or audio etc. We will send you joining instructions after you enrol.

You may wish to bring a notepad and pen with you to each class in case you wish to make notes.

Can I talk to someone about my course before I start it?

It is usually possible to put you directly in touch with the tutor if a member of the CLMK staff cannot answer your query.

Important: If you need help with your online learning experience for a learning difficulty and/or disability (for example a hearing or sight impairment) please let CLMK and/or your tutor know as we may be able to offer you extra support or provide different learning materials. This class involves periods of meditation with eyes closed so it is particularly important that your tutor is aware if you have a hearing impairment.

The content of this course may be adapted as research and theories change.

What can I do next?

You may wish to enrol on one of our other Smile:)MK courses, or other courses within the Community Learning portfolio.
