Course delivery – Spring and Autumn Schools online

Spring and Autumn online courses include:

  • Five pre-recorded one-hour lectures for all Making Sense of… and Variations on a Theme courses, and ten pre-recorded one-hour lectures for An Introduction to Art History. Lectures are delivered to students two weeks before the first discussion session, and four weeks for An Introduction to Art History.
  • A live Zoom seminar in the afternoons, depending on student numbers in two groups at 14:00 and at 16:00, and for the evening online courses Making Sense of Ideas on Art (Spring) and Abstraction (Autumn) at 18:00 and, if necessary, again at19:30 [London time]. Zoom seminars last for between one hour and one hour fifteen. Optional museum and gallery visits take place on Saturdays, from 10:00-13:00.
  • A social ‘icebreaker’ session, usually on the Wednesday before your first Zoom seminar, to meet your tutor and classmates. We teach in small groups to facilitate discussion.
  • Pre-course reading materials, handouts, further reading suggestions, student-to-tutor and peer-to-peer discussion forums on the VLE.
