If you follow live, you will be able to interact via chat Sessions Each week’s session focuses on a particular aspect of clown studies, using a combination of video viewing, readings and discussion. Each week: • Before the scheduled video session, you will receive preliminary questions, with reading and/or viewing tasks • Access to the video session either live or as a recording, a you prefer • After the session, follow-up questions/tasks/assignments, to which you will be asked to respond • Feedback on your responses to the session Live streaming and recording access • You will need access to Zoom • Those participating in live stream sessions will be able to interact via text chat when appropriate. • Live-streamed sessions will be available as recordings once the live session is over • You will be invited to join a private group on Facebook where all participants can communicate with each other in a support and discussion forum. Assignments and Feedback There will be short assignments or questions each week/session relating to the session covered or coming up (if you follow it in your own time through recorded materials this can be done at your own convenience within the overall time limit for the course). It is envisaged that you will need to spend around an hour reading, watching materials and writing or recording your responses each week/session. Each participant will receive feedback or comments as the course progresses. Projects Each participant will compile a small single-issue project of their own choice on clown themes, by the end of the course. Each project will receive feedback and may also be discussed by the course participants when appropriate and feasible. The aim of the project is to produce a short response or reflection on a specific area of clown studies. Projects can be compiled in any format - text, photos, videos, spoken word or any other format that can be stored or recorded for future clown students to consult. The amount of time needed to compile the project may vary according to the content and format.
I do not refund payments made (either whole or part payments) but I can offer you the chance to use your payment towards a course or workshop at a later date within one year of the original courser. This can only be done once and must be requested at least 48 hours before the start of a course or workshop. If you cancel within 24 hours or do not turn up without notification then you should pay any outstanding fee. This policy is to protect the viability of courses, whose costs and numbers of participants need to be confirmed in advance. I try to keep all prices as low as possible (I haven’t forgotten how difficult it can be to be a student). That’s why there is a single price, with no discounts or concessionary rates.
