Research & Shared Learning

About u3a Research and Shared Learning Contact: Maggy Simms slp@u3a.org.uk

Learning is one of u3a's core activities. It can happen in many different ways, including collaborative and interactive learning. This section includes projects that you and your u3a contacts might take part in.

The u3a's Research and Shared Learning Committee is run by u3a volunteers on behalf of the members. Some projects are national or regional, others are devised and run by individuals.

Why not take a look through the list of projects others have done so far? This database might stimulate ideas and get you going quicker than you thought possible: Research Database ...... the database isn't yet complete, because we need our members to tell us what to put in it!

Projects cover anything that stimulates the interest of those taking part
Some may want to work with a university department, others might be counting species for a local wildlife initiative, but they are all valid and valued. There may be organisations in your own area that you can partner with for a project: local history societies, arts groups, libraries, museums, town twinning committees and so on.
