Shared Learning is an unaffiliated educational organization established in 1979. Our in-person courses are given at the Church of Reconciliation (“The Rec”), 110 N. Elliot Rd., Chapel Hill.  The church is located one block north of Franklin St., across Franklin from the shopping center with the Whole Foods Market.  Some courses are given at the Rec, but most at this time are offered remotely over Zoom.  A few are “hybrid”–offered to both in-person participants and people logging in remotely.

Joining Shared Learning is done by signing up for one or more classes and paying the membership fee.  The Shared Learning membership year is from September through August. Signing up in the Fall gives one a full year of membership.  Non-members signing up for the first time through registration for Winter classes entails a membership for the remainder of the year at a reduced price.

Classes meet once a week, generally either from 9:15 to 10:45 or 11:15 to 12:45.
