online PUBLICATION SCHOOL 2023
The course will be held live over Zoom. Participants will need to have Zoom downloaded, rather than using the browser version, as we will be using registrations. We will teach using shared slides, webcam, and audio.
We’re excited to maintain the highly interactive nature of Publication School in this online format, with all-group discussion and small-group exercises and discussion. Participants will be welcome to use text chat, mic, and/or webcam in the main room, but will need at least a mic for small-group work in breakout rooms
Sessions will run 12:30-17:00 BST, with regular comfort breaks.
We will not record the sessions, but participants will receive the electronic course workbook with all notes and exercises. We regret that we are unable to offer live captions.
