Alumni diary

As you will remember from your time as a Member there is always a wealth of activity going on at the College, although much of this is currently taking place online.  We want you to continue to enjoy events hosted by the College, so below you can find listed some of the upcoming events open to you and some that are specifically for the Alumni community – giving you the perfect reason to spend (virtual) time in the company of current Members and fellow Alumni.

The Digital Gymnasia – skills to help you navigate your life online

Goodenough Governor, Fellow and major donor Anni Rowland-Campbell is running a new series of courses for Alumni.

Anni says: “For the past few years I have been delivering “Digital Skills” workshops to interested students at Goodenough College, but 2020 offers us many new opportunities as the world wakes up to the power and potential of digital interaction technologies.

“We want to offer you the opportunity to think more consciously about the digital tools that now connect us, and to begin to develop further the digital muscle we need to better navigate and negotiate our lives online as this large-scale social experiment unfolds. Thus was born the Digital Gymnasia, a series of workshops where the emphasis is on education, play, and skill building through conversation and coaching and where we can explore some of the questions and issues which are arising.”

The first of these workshops, Digital 101, was held on Wednesday 10 June – followed two weeks later by the Digital Agora.

The dates for the upcoming workshop is:

  • Born Digital – From bricks and mortar to being a digital business – Wednesday 23 September 2020 from 12 – 1.30 pm (BST)

The workshop will take place via Zoom. For details on how to join, please email alumni@goodenough.ac.uk stating which event you would like to attend. Spaces are limited.
