A Warm Welcome To
Open for Learning
Open for Learning is a set of five short online taster classes which are completely free
Note, our symbol is the iris – associated in Greek mythology with the rainbow – a common image during the crisis. The iris also flowers in Spring. Open for Learning is all about new growth, new skills and new knowledge.
The classes have been created by tutors from Queen’s University’s Open Learning Programme.
The idea behind making these online classes is to tackle the isolation that many people are experiencing because of the Coronavirus, especially older people.
The project has been funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) through the University.
The five classes cover a range of subjects taught in the Open learning programme.
