The Academy for Lifelong Learning

Learn in daytime workshops on the University of Toronto Campus

Meeting at Knox College (see map), the Academy of Lifelong Learning is a centre for intellectually curious adults interested in exploring and understanding this world and in meeting others who share their interests.

All workshops are facilitated by members and each workshop is led by a member who researches a topic and then makes a presentation.

Our 24th year of workshops begins in September offering 36 topics in the arts, sciences and current affairs.

Also, there is a series of Spring Talks by experts in their field, and biweeklyForums in both the fall and winter.

Opportunities to meet and mix with other members include spring and summer walks, as well as occasional luncheons, picnics and field trips.
