Are you 'hungry' to learn this spring? Are you, or a foodie you know, interested in a 'taste' of something new?  Join us and "Spring into Learning," with four different virtual food-related events that will not only support local businesses, but also 'whet your appetite' for learning in this season of new beginnings!

From baking bread to taking part in a chocolate tasting, there’s something for every learner. Each workshop is paired with additional materials, which are usually available for pick up in either Orillia or Thunder Bay, or can be mailed if needed. 

All sessions involve components using the Zoom platform. Not familiar with Zoom?  No problem.  Our team will reach out to provide support as needed prior to these events. All you need to do is email cell@lakeheadu.ca to make arrangements!

All sessions will also be recorded for those unable to attend in real-time.  Each session costs $30, and they are available to Lakehead staff, students, and alumni for just $20.  Shipping (for the chocolate and Shumka Dust workshops) is available for $10, and shipping for the breadmaking workshop is included in the price.

There are no partridges in pear trees here, but if the “true love” of someone you care for is lifelong learning, we might have just the gift for you to give… to a friend, family member, teacher, colleague, or even yourself!

Lakehead University’s Office of Community Engagement and Lifelong Learning is offering “12 Days (or is it ways?) of Learning.”  For each, you’ll receive a unique experience.  Some of these will be paired with additional materials that can be mailed to you, but all come with a special gift certificate to print and plenty of instructions about how to connect with the upcoming event!

January and February have the potential to be a bit isolating this year, so why not give the gift of learning and enable a sense of community that will last into the new year and beyond.  There’s something for everyone on your list, and you might even join someone in learning something new.

Almost all sessions involve components using the Zoom platform. Not familiar with Zoom?  No problem.  Our team will reach out to provide support as needed prior to these events. All you need to do is email cell@lakeheadu.ca to make arrangements!

All sessions will also be recorded for those unable to attend in real time.

Sign up now to make sure you get your gift certificates via email before the holidays.  Materials will be available for pick up (Orillia or Thunder Bay) or delivery (across Canada) very early in the new year.
