Senior Citizens have a need to continue their intellectual growth. Many also require opportunities for social interaction. We recognize that as we age and the world around us changes we need to retain flexibility regarding how we teach, learn and socialize.
Shared Learning Association of Chapel Hill provides noncredit, continuing education courses at low cost in a socially congenial atmosphere for retirees and other adults. Our focus is on creating a shared process of learning. Though all courses are developed and led by volunteer members, attendees add to the educational process by asking questions and contributing their own perspectives and knowledge.
Shared Learning seeks to achieve this mission though these Current Practices:
Shared Learning is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Our Board of Directors and course moderators are located in and near Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Our membership is largely local but now includes members from out of other states and Europe. Since 1997, we have met in churches in the Chapel Hill Area but now also offer virtual courses. Our all-volunteer platform allows us to offer a rich offering of courses over three terms at a low annual membership fee. Courses are led by moderators who lead discussions based on a variety of video sources, moderator originated materials, or make use of local resources to add to the classroom experience.
