Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the first FIJI course of 2020 had to put all its bits and pixels together to go completely digital. It took place on the 4th and 5th of June.
Although Jack Fransen, Marieke Willemse and Merijn van Erp missed the personal classroom interactions, they can again look back to a successful course thanks to an enthusiastic group of 14 students who helped them through this first online version.
Jack, Marieke and Merijn are very happy with this first Internet Fiji course. The next course is scheduled for 9 and 10 September 2020. You can already register for this course here.
