Lifelong Learning, a collaborative community program developed by Lakeland University and the City of Neenah Committee on Aging, will offer its first interactive seminar on Jan. 25 beginning at 9 a.m. at the Sheboygan Senior Activity Center.
The topics on the agenda for this free, half-day program for adult learners will be self-motivation and memoir writing. Charlie Krebs, associate professor of theatre and speech, will provide information and activities to help participants realize they are more self-motivated than they realize. And Nathan Lowe, dean of the School of Humanities and Fine Arts, will provide an interactive seminar on memoir writing, guiding participants through memory exercises that will lead to the beginning of a personal essay.
Members of Lakeland's faculty will present Lifelong Learning events up to three times a year at selected locations. Topics vary and are selected based on participant interest. The goal of the Lifelong Learning program is to promote learning across the lifespan by engaging university faculty and the senior population in conversations about social issues and topics of interest to the participants.
Registration for the Jan. 25 event begins at 8:30 a.m. Pre-registration is preferred, as there are limited seats available. Please contact the Sheboygan Senior Activity Center at 459-3290 to reserve your spot in one or both of the sessions.
