Get a feeling of what to expect in our Summer School from our first video
To get a taste of what the Summer School is like, and what it means to a Summer School tutor (and previous student), please see our new and first video: http://www.alter-net.info/summer-school
. Filmed at the 9th ALTER-Net Summer School in September 2014, the video features Marie Vandewalle, interviewed by Steve Redpath on her experience of the School. Lovingly filmed by Allan Watt, the director of the Summer School and produced and edited by Peter Watt, the video conveys the beauty of the location, the benefits of the experience and the relaxing atmosphere that Peyresq offers.
Feel free to share the video and let us know what you think about it!
