When

On the third Friday of each month from 10.30am-12.00.
Where

At the Town Hall.

Overview
Course: This is a new concept for iU3A, a different way of learning, by using online resources produced by some of the top universities and academics in the world and made available free on the web. However, iU3A members will be doing it in a very different way. The idea is to experiment with the best ways to create the feel of a book club while using the resources from free online courses. Group members see the hour-long videos of a lecture at home before coming together to discuss it once a month for about 90 minutes.

Power and Politics in Today’s World: 'Today's World' ranges from the huge euphoria that accompanied the collapse of communism in the late 1980s to the politics of fear and resentment that has overtaken much of the world since 2016, focusing on how did we get from there to here, what comes next and what could lead us to a better politics? Professor of Political Science Ian Shapiro plans to answer these questions for  students at Yale University and learners everywhere. He introduces the course here. Our first meeting (on 17 January) will explore the course, show members how to access it on their computer or smartphone, discuss different ways of covering the material and when to review progress? If you are interested, please contact Vivek Nanda at the link above.

Our Future Meetings
The first meeting will introduce the course, show people how to access it on their computer or smartphone, discuss different ways of covering the material and when to review progress. The idea is for group members to see each subsequent lecture at home before coming together to discuss it once a month for about 90 minutes.
