Lifelong learning and teaching
The Fromm Institute is a University within The University of San Francisco, which offers courses for retired adults over 50. In addition to a variety of classes, the institute offers students the opportunity to hold elected office to plan special events and social functions.
The Institute shows how the act of learning creates opportunities for people to experience moments of accomplishment, no matter their age. The teachers are retired professors, who get an outlet to share their passions. As a bonus benefit, the Institute allows people a chance to be physically and socially active.
How might we create more peer to peer learning platforms that do not feel like "community service"?
