Shared Learning Projects (SLPs)
Shared learning projects (SLPs) are short, participatory learning activities lasting from several weeks to several months. They involve U3A members and, possibly other local parties such as schools or societies, interested in researching or developing a particular subject. They usually culminate in a small publication, presentation or exhibition and may be local or regional projects, often with sponsorship to assist them, eg South Downs National Park & National Lottery sponsored the South Downs Alphabet SLP.
Local SLPs can be created by one of a U3A's interest groups, working with other U3A groups or local organisations.
