Free Online Course – ‘Robert Burns: Poems, Songs, and Legacy’
Such was the success of the free online course on Robert Burns offered in January by the Centre for Robert Burns Studies at the University of Glasgow, in partnership with Futurelearn, that a second course is now available for enrolment. Over the course of three weeks, learners will explore three core questions: Who was Robert Burns? What made Robert Burns a poetic genius? What made Burns a worldwide icon?
It starts in July and Registration is now open at: https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/robert-burns
Along with several thousand others, I took the first course and found it excellent. A true multi-media experience. The course was led by Prof. Gerry Carruthers, well-known to RBANA members from his talks at our Conferences in 2014 in Columbia and again in 2015 in Calgary. Highly recommended.
