Once again this past week we’ve been busy scanning across the internet to find the latest information and Open University courses. The greatest university on the planet (we reckon anyway) is always innovating and leading the way on many issues that affect us around the globe and these news pieces reflect just that. So if there’s a free course or bit of news on the agenda then hopefully we will pick it up and stick it on the next Open University news.
Social history of learning disability. “We are delighted to announce that the next Social History of Learning Disability Conference will be held at The Open University in Milton Keynes. The theme of this years conference is ‘Biography, Life Stories and Life Histories’.”
New Future Learn course, The Lottery of Birth. Birth is a lottery. This free online course from the Open University will look at both the big picture of the ‘lottery of birth’ and the smaller, human stories. You will examine the inequalities of birth, particularly being born rich or poor and being born female or male.”Where, when and to whom you are born and the society into which you are born will influence your life chances.”
Creative writing charity Arvon has been awarded close to £160,000 from a new research grant from Arts Council England for a project about writers and teachers. Arvon will use its £159,188 for the two-year project, investigating the impact that bringing teachers and writers together has on the writing development of the teachers’ students. The project will be carried out in partnership with University of Exeter and the Open University.
