  • Description:

    This class is hosted by a group of third-age learners in Toronto, Canada. It meets on the last Monday of every month and is repeated to an overflow audience on the following first Monday of the following month both in and out of term time throughout the year. Participation is by Zoom from your home computer. All that's needed to join in is a computer (desktop, laptop or tablet) equipped with a webcam and high-speed Internet access. The five dozen members are third-age learners from the U3AC, UK-based U3As and similar organisations in Canada, Ireland and the USA. At a typical session, a member or guest speaker kicks off the discussion 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 range of perspectives represented. There are usually about 11 meetings a year.
