I've always enjoyed learning. As a child, I did like school (and took it very seriously!), but now that I'm an adult, learning is even more meaningful. Besides more "academic" topics, areas such as consumer reports, family history research, child-rearing tips, and vacation planning fall into the category of lifelong learning. Oh, and let's not forget all the "how-to" information which comes in handy as a homeowner and homemaker. Learning encompasses an infinite number of topics.
Thanks to technology, a simple click of the mouse allows me to study just about anything. Each summer, though, I have a chance to return to a classroom setting, when Brigham Young University holds Campus Education Week. I love stepping back on campus; it feels like going home.
BYU posted the class schedule today, and I feel like a kid in a candy shop. How will I possibly choose which classes to take? (There are over 1,000 offered.) I know that no matter what I end up taking, I will come away "renewed, refreshed, and recharged."
How about you? What are your favorite learning opportunities?
Thanks to BYU for offering Education Week.
