Our program brings together people who now have the time and the freedom to take classes for fun and who enjoy the real pleasure of continuing to learn.
The curriculum is patterned after successful national programs designed to meet the educational interests of the retired community.

Welcome to the Summer 2023 Session of The Learning Collaborative
The Learning Collaborative’s 2023 Summer (June) Program is extra special this year. Instead of asking you to choose which class to take on a given day at a given time, we have spread your class choices out on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays for four consecutive weeks. You have the possibility of attending twenty-four excellent courses all for the tuition fee of just $60 (or $85 for two people at the same terminal). Even if you don’t wish to attend the all the offered classes – it still represents the best bargain that we can possibly offer you.
We believe that once again we are presenting a wonderful selection of courses for your learning and pleasure and we do hope to see you, whether in person, by Zoom, or by a combination of both.

A Note from The Learning Collaborative Board
To sustain The Learning Collaborative, I ask all our students to engage in a “membership drive” to attract new participants to our Programs. The Covid pandemic, and other factors, have reduced enrollment over the past few years. We are sure first time participants will be pleased with the TLC experience - please assist us in finding them. Thank you for helping!

comments From Our Students
Bill always seems to have his fingers on the pulse of what’s timely and happening in the community at large—The course keeps me informed about current events, which I really need; because at times one can become oblivious to matters not always addressed on the 6:00 News. He’s timely and informative.
Bill Batson’s courses are always current and pithy and absolutely timely. They also always deal with creating a more just society, something we surely could use! I ALWAYS learn and grow from his courses — and read his newsletter every week!
Robin Brancato is an excellent teacher. She is well-organized and stimulates great discussions. All the movies she selected were very interesting. All around a very enjoyable course. Hoping she continues to do it and will gladly join, again.
The facilitators were warm and welcoming, and encouraged class participation. Great demonstrations and knowledgeable presenters. Gave insights into musical theatre, dance and song and what lay behind their creation from people who were part of this world.
The instructor has a wealth of information and used a variety of means to illustrate his points. It was especially interesting to watch the videos that he provided. It greatly enriched the content. Although it was basically a lecture course, given that we were all there to learn more about this topic, the format was perfect.
The book was not easy reading. With the guidance of Susan, it became a joy to explore the day in the life of a woman in upper class English society following WW1 and a pandemic. The writing and accompanying articles created a backdrop for stimulating discussion.
Phyllis was able to tackle the extremely difficult course material and present it in a way that we were able to understand it. She did this by patiently presenting different subjects in different ways and reviewing it periodically. Phyllis was unbelievably prepared with wonderful slides and small videos. It was a great course, and it was very timely because she integrated the genetics with the Covid vaccines, the variants, etc.
