A Changed World University-Wide Make-Along: Creative Writing with Stevie Kilgour
To complement the project, the University of Hertfordshire organised a very successful online teaching and learning event: A Changed World University-Wide Make-Along, with an open invitation to the entire extended Herts community, including University of Hertfordshire students from FE and overseas partners. Experts in creative writing, communication, art, and media led interactive beginners’ sessions in creative arts. Crafting together in real-time, the project connected virtually in a positive and supportive environment, enjoying moments of pride in their own and others’ creativity.
