Learning resources, forthcoming events and details of this voluntary organisation for retired and semi-retired people. No qualifications required or awarded.
Open University
For first class undergraduate and postgraduate courses in UK and all over the world. Now rather expensive - but financial help available (especially to non-graduates).
Poole Universty of the Third Age
This website gives a good idea of the wide range of Poole U3A activities.
Free On-line Philosophy Courses
This is a list of free on-line philosophy course on the openculture web site which also has many other educational on-line resources in Politics, Philosophy & other subjects.
Bournemouth U3A
Bournemouth U3A has two Philosophy groups in 2019/20. Other local U3A groups are also to be found in Dorset (e.g. Wimborne).
Oxford University Continuing Education
Currently (December 2019) 66 Philosophy and 96 Politics offerings including some on-line. Introductory Politics on-line course has Tansey & Jackson as required reading!
Southampton University Lifelong Learning
Southampton's Lifelong Learning Programme is on a limited scale - but has some interesting offerings including the Philosophy Cafe and Politics Study Days. You can also take a first degree in Philosophy or Philosophy & English on a part-time basis. The Philosophy Department hosts a series of open seminars sponsored by the Royal Institute of Philosophy - but these are often quite technical.
Bournemouth University
The Media School has an innovative full time undergraduate course in Politics with emphasis on modern media, and postgraduate courses on Political Psychology and International Political Communications.At first degree level Politics can also be combined with Law, Sociology or Economics. There are is no Philosophy or Extra-Mural Department - but the Annual Festival of Learning is worth investigating.
WEA
The WEA (the Workers Educational Association) is an excellent provider of part-time short non-examination educational courses for all adults. However no Politics or Philosophy courses are planned in 2019/20 for the local area - unless you count Winchester or Exeter!
Bournemouth & Poole College
In 2019/20 there are no Philosophy courses but 'A' level Politics is available.

General

One page on the site deals with the book I am working on at present. This is a book on Ethics and Politics in a Secular age. Your comments would be very welcome!

A newish page commemorates the life of Sue Tansey. A fairly recent page is about Free Attractions in Dorset. Please let me have any suggestion for further content.

Philosophy

We are planning to meet on-line via Skype. Members should have received an invitation to join a Philosophy Workshop group. Just click on link to participate. I believe you do not need to download Skype software to do this but it might help to do so and practice using the Skype on friends, relations or other members of the group.

I am suggesting a practice social meeting on 15 April to test the feasibility of this. Otherwise we can just 'meet' on email

Details of U3A Poole Philosophy Workshop classes are on this site. The schedule is subject to amendment and is frequently revised. Please check on this site to ensure you have the latest version. In the Summer term 2020 we will be meeting virtually by email.
