"Freedom of time and opportunity"

From the Dean College Library blog, Kent Manning writes:
Learning is something that should be an extension of you, not just something that happens in the classroom. So post-graduation, choose the subjects that you are interested in. Find the resources that are engaging and dynamic. Fit the learning into your lifestyle. And never let a detail like not being in a formal classroom limit your opportunities to be a student of life and to engage your mind.

I wholeheartedly agree. The day you stop learning is the day you'll fall behind. Competition is fierce and the knowledge economy places a premium on being able to think. For a more detail explanation of my own efforts on life long learning, read this  http://www.sobevent.com/what-makes-shersteve-come-back-to-sobcon-over-and-over/

Click through to the full article to check out the resources suggested. I do like the TED Talks series and regularly readers here have seen a few shared from time to time. The Federal Reserve Bank of St Louis site is one I'll have to explore.  http://deancultureconnect.wordpress.com/2013/05/20/a-life-of-learning/?utm_source=feedly

Both the Franklin School District and the Tri-County Regional Voc Tech offer life long learning opportunities.  For Franklin visit http://cfweb.smartedu.net/lll/  and for Tri-County visit http://www.tri-county.tc/?q=node/8

And while on the topic of learning, let me add a reminder for those currently looking for work, the Job Search Jam Sessions will be held on June 14. The day features sessions to learn and share information on the job search. For additional information, including registration, visit the webpage here
