January: The Psychology Topics #3: Crime, Depression evening classes at both Shipley College and Rossett were cancelled due to low take-up.
Commentary: the courses were to be run online. As with the previous September, it seemed online was not how people wanted to undertake this kind of training. Also, of course, the Coronavirus pandemic was at the peak of its second wave around the time the courses were due to start,
March: Spent half a day at Sci-Tech Daresbury being interviewed on video for the Potentialisation project with Jon Twigge, Christopher Cooke, his wife Sheila and others.
Commentary: It was uplifting and fun to catch up with Cookie. I hadn’t seen him since the Regent’s College Summit in 2009. Although Jon and I had engaged in occasional contact over the years, I hadn’t actually been in the same room as him since Regent’s College. (All conversations socially-distanced, of course.)
March: Conducted the one-off online workshop Why do They do That?! for Shipley College.
Commentary: This was an attempt, using SocioPsychology concepts, to explore why people behaved in disruptive ways during a crisis like Coronavirus.
Although attendance was small – just 7 participants – feedback was effusive.
August: From the small number of online tutees I had supported this academic year, one achieved an A* in in A-Level Psychology, one an A, one a B and one a C. My only A-Level Sociology tutee also achieved an A.
