Project ID950
DescriptionExperiments in Third Age Education At the Norwich Conference 2000 the Standing Committee for Education (SCE) mounted a programme designed to focus on the U3A interest group, the resources that support it and the members who animate it. Following a tripartite presentation to the whole conference covering the Resource Centre, SOURCES and new developments in distance learning, ten colleagues led group sessions either replicating a first meeting in selected subject areas or exploring some approaches and methodologies current in U3A. In October the participants met in London to evaluate the project, many contributing considered written papers to the meeting. A similar structure was the basis of a Study Day held by U3A Scotland in Perth and this article is partly a report and partly a personal reflection on both events.
