Pharos Courses – Discussions and Shared Learning (#SurnameSeries)

Created by Julie Goucher March 2019 Using WordCloud

One of the most important elements of any learning, whether that is in a classroom or an online environment is the interaction with the tutor and other students.

The Pharos courses are no different in this regard. Each week there is at least a one hour online chat session where students and the tutor can engage with each other. That sharing is just as important as the lessons and exercises. It is about coming together and sharing not just the data or information, but also hints, tips and tricks.

Of course, there are occasions when some students cannot attend the chat sessions, in those instances the transcript, which is available to all students, goes someway to fill the gap. Tutor’s will always try to hold their chat sessions when the majority of students can attend.

The discussions that take place, either in the chat or in the forum often act as catalysts or provide opportunities to write posts here and in some cases they go a step further and become articles in genealogical magazines, or the Guild journal.
