  • Description:

    This class is hosted by a group of third-age learners in Toronto, Canada. It meets on the last Monday of every month both in and out of term time throughout the year. Participation is by Internet-based videoconference with everyone at their home (or vacation) computer. No physical classroom is involved. All that's needed to join in is a computer (desktop, laptop or tablet) equipped with a webcam and high-speed Internet access. The two dozen members are third-age learners from the U3AC, other UK-based U3As and similar organisations in Canada and the USA. At a typical session, a member or guest speaker kicks things off with a 30-minute presentation on a current topic of international interest. This is followed by an hour or so of round-the-table discussion with a wide range of perspectives represented.
