Sessions

While we strongly encourage participants in the society to buy a membership, it's important that interested individuals have the opportunity to trial a session before joining. To that end, we offer one free session a year to non-members; simply email us at [email protected] for a guest-link to the session.

Our regular sessions are hosted on Blackboard Collaborate, every Monday at 18:00 - 20:00 (ish). Members will be given access to our Blackboard Collaborate Organisation, from which they can view all sessions and recordings. Guests will receive a direct link to the session they have chosen!
