This remote course is suitable for the Skills section of Bronze, Silver or Gold awards and will help you learn how the brain works and take part in activities to strengthen mental health and well-being. You’ll be able to use your creative skills to journal your thinking, take photographs and make things. It provides the building blocks for understanding and developing a growth mindset and each course will be individual to you and will become what you make it!
Participants can tailor the course to how they like to learn. There are videos to watch, short paragraphs to read, diagrams and pictures, knowledge organisers and memes. Participants record their reflections and learning in a way that suits them. This can be in the form of a written journal and can include photographs, making resources, mind maps, drawings. Some participants have made an e-journal and there is the option to do a video diary if preferred. Basically, we can work with the participant so that the course is accessible.
Once you sign up you can start anytime and take as long as you need.
You can also do the course on our new online hub where you can up and download docs and pics straight from your phone/tablet. The alternative is that Kirstin will email you the sessions and you email her back with your journals. Let us know what you’d prefer to begin with, you can always change or mix the two. When you have chosen, all you’d need to do is make the payment and remember to add your eDofE number as a reference.
