Given the demand for another Philosophy group, and in view of a wish to experiment with using online courses within our U3A, we are going to start 2017 with an experiment for which we need philosophically-minded guinea pigs!
The first course we plan to use is Philosophy and Critical Thinking (META101x, offered by the University of Queensland on edX).
Interested members who would be prepared to attend a meeting during the afternoon of Wednesday 1 February are invited to ring Doreen Raine on 01306 886817 or send an email to email@example.com. The venue will be decided according to the number of members wishing to attend. At this exploratory meeting we shall discuss how a group approach can be applied to the course and we shall view some of the first module together.
• Experiments with online courses on Marine Archaeology and Successful Ageing are also being planned.
