WELCOME TO THE UCONN ADULT LEARNING PROGRAM
SPRING PREVIEW REVIEW
Take a rare day of January sunshine, mix with two very good
guest speakers, add a bunch of knowledgeable people providing information about a
great curriculum, throw in about a hundred attendees and a pinch of nice refreshments
provided by the Seabury staff and you have the recipe for an outstanding Spring
Preview Meeting. Bruce and Sondra Stave,
experts in the field of Oral History, gave an interesting talk on the subject which is defined as "the collection and study of historical
information using recordings of interviews with people having personal
knowledge of past events." They
provided personal experiences and insight
on the difficulties interviewers face in developing accurate, reliable information due to fallible memories and hidden agendas and the techniques
used to overcome those difficulties.
Good stuff. And check out the photos from the meeting provided by our peerless volunteer photographer Ed Raymond.
If you missed the meeting, you can, of course, still register for classes. The curriculum this semester is one of the best in recent memory with an impressive array of presenters: 10 college professors, a rabbi, two lawyers, a soil scientist, a Jungian Analyst (think Carl Jung), a Doctor of Education and the Executive Director of Connecticut's Women Hall of Fame. If you've lost or never received your copy of the ALP Horn newsletter containing a description and schedule of the courses being offered, you can get all that information right here. We even have the registration form you can download, complete and send in to the ALP Administrator.
GET INVOLVED!We could use more help. If you would like to "give something back" to our Adult Learning Program in return for all
that you've received (or are about to receive), please visit our Committees page. After you identify which committee or position could possibly be a good match for your interests, skills or experience, contact our Administrator, Bertina Williams, (860)-380-5038 or email@example.com.
