267 people signed up for Summer School - we can't fit them all on one picture!
This was an historic event for us, combining online Zoom instruction with live classes, in those places where it was possible. Many had to train at home on their own with only the nationally broadcast Zoom instruction.
It was a huge success in the support shown by the student body. Technology let us down on some occasions and it was certainly a challenge for those teaching to take into consideration the many circumstances of the people to whom they were demonstrating. Despite any shortcomings we received overwhelming positive comments and it was an event where we all learnt valuable lessons, in many senses of the word.
6 pre-recorded sessions from US & UK instructors uploaded. Due to a wave of requests those classes have now been uploaded to the Media Centre of the Summer School web page and can be viewed for the next two weeks.
