Charleston Academy for Lifelong Learning (CALL) provides an opportunity to go back into a classroom with your peers, to facilitate a class or just to learn. It’s a great way to make new friends. You can choose to be on either side of the desk as experts share a lifetime of knowledge and experience with their peers.
The catalog of the Spring 2024 term’s offerings (with links to online registration) will be posted at the beginning of February. Once lifelong learners have joined C.A.L.L. for the term, participants can sign up for any or all of the classes offered. While the vast majority of participants are retirees, there are no age restrictions. Most courses will be taught at the College of Charleston’s Riley Center for Livable Communities, 176 Lockwood Drive, Charleston.
C.A.L.L. is a peer-to-peer lifelong learning institute, meaning that you can be just a participant, or you can volunteer to teach a course. If you have expertise in a topic you’d like to share, please email us at CAforLifelongLearning@gmail.com and we will send you full information on presenting. We are always looking for facilitators with interesting topics to share. We have presented classes in everything from gardening to physics.
C.A.L.L. lifelong learners who are also members of the Center for Creative Retirement will be offered a preview of the upcoming term on February 5, 2024, as part of CCR’s ongoing Monday lecture series. C.A.L.L. operates as a committee of CCR, but one does not need to be a member of the Center of Creative Retirement to take C.A.L.L. classes. One can join either or both.
