PRinOL webinar

This year, instead of our usual PRinOL conference, we are holding a webinar on 27 January 2021 from 1 – 2.30pm. Invited speakers will discuss their success stories in outdoor learning during the pandemic – something that we need to cheer us through the short winter days!

Please register by emailing us at PRinOL@plymouth.ac.uk by 26 January 2021. Sending us an email means that you will be happy for us to contact you with the link to the webinar nearer the time.
