Lectures will take place on Zoom in a webinar format. Each lecture will consist of a 60 minute lecture and a 15 minute Q&A. You can participate in the class via the chat box by submitting questions for the lecturer and voting for questions submitted by other participants. There will also be an option at the beginning of each lecture to become a ‘live’ audience member with camera and mic to participate in the lecture in more of an interactive way.

The course will run from 14 September to 16 November 2023, with one lecture per week every Thursday at 4:00 to 5:15pm BST/GMT. The last 15 minutes will be for Q&A.
