Live broadcast

Distance learning can be an ideal way to spend time right now, and while some of the world has changed beyond recognition, for many OU students studying has been relatively consistent. Apart from things like changes in work, home schooling, a lack of social contact and many other challenges. At our SHL online social event we’ll have the opportunity to talk to other OU students about how we’ve found all these changes, and suggest ways that we’ve discovered new things. Guests will include Mike Batham who will tell us how he made sanitiser for Milton Keynes hospital and Jeni Sanderson, a life coach, who will explain why we can struggle at times like this and suggest ways we can turn some of the negatives into positives.

This live, online and interactive event is a fun way to meet other students. Log in from the comfort of your own home to view the event, chat with other students and participate in our studio panel’s discussions. 

Please note that this event is scheduled to start at 11:00am and will run until 11:45am. Register your interest for this free event here.

Over the last few weeks our worlds have changed. For some this presents a great opportunity to learn; for others it is a frustrating time — having to juggle chores, worries and stress. Whatever your situation, it's good to get together and talk to others. We’ll explore how stress can impact us, what we know from positive psychology about wellbeing, and some practical interventions that can help to lift your mood and make it easier to study.
