Free animal behaviour and welfare course
« on: February 11, 2015, 09:43:09 am »

There is a free course that you may be interested in.  You need to register for this one this week.  It is very good.

Don't wrestle with pigs, they will love it and you will just get all muddy.

Let go of who you are and become who you are meant to be.

Thanks for sharing, Backinwellies.
 
I'd never heard of a MOOC, but I've now signed up for one in another subject and am really looking forward to it  :thumbsup: .

I'm already doing three MOOCS at the moment (Moons of the Solar System, Agriculture and Food Security, and a repeat of Richard 111 to find out about his reburial) - no room for any more.  I did see the animal behaviour course advertised but it will have to wait.  Please report back whether it's good and worth doing when it's repeated.  Good Luck.

I also thought this looked good, but am about to do the Richard III one, and can't cope with 2!
