Registration begins October 18, 2021 for the late fall 2021 program. Due to pandemic-related restrictions on Carleton’s campus, classes will be offered in an online format. The courses offered this session are found on the Carleton University Lifelong Learning Program website.
The Carleton University early fall 2021 session starts the week of September 13th and spaces are available in the varied courses.
Joining the western side of Brewer Park to the Carleton University campus is a well-used footbridge tucked alongside the Rideau River. The construction material is quintessentially Canadian: the railings are made of wooden hockey sticks!
The commemorative plaque, somewhat worn and graffitied, installed on the bridge reads:
The Lifelong Learning Program at Carleton University (formerly known as the Learning in Retirement Program) is celebrating 20 years of providing affordable opportunities to learn for personal satisfaction. During the COVID-19 pandemic, all offerings are online.
Registration opens Wednesday, April 28, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. for the late spring session. Full details about each offering (dates, times, descriptions, lecturer biography, etc.), are found on the Late Spring 2021 Session page.
Registration for the next session of Learning in Retirement begins Tuesday, December 8, 2020 at 10 a.m. Topics and lecturers have been chosen to provide entertainment, context, education – and a good dose of welcome distraction.
The Carleton University Fall 2020 session of Learning in Retirement (LinR) will feature a mixture of online lecture series, a writing workshop, and single lecture presentations.
The City of Ottawa is seeking comments on the planned footbridge over the Rideau River joining Carleton University & Vincent Massey Park.
