TRS Chester Religious Studies Webinars Season 3



Join us live for the Season Three of @TRSChester’s A level Religious Studies Webinars. In short, sharp online sessions, lecturers from the University of Chester share their expertise and engage topics and issues on the A Level Religious Studies specifications. A level students and teachers are especially welcome, but also GCSE and Key Stage Three, and indeed anyone! Live attendees can ask questions anonymously in the chat.

Every Tuesday 4.00-4.35pm (Please note there is no session on 24th May as staff will be attending graduation to celebrate their students) 20-minute live lecture plus anonymous Q&A in the chat (audience neither seen nor heard).
