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 “6 Days (or is it ways?) of Learning.”  For each, you’ll receive a unique experience.  Some of these will be paired with additional materials, 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:

Lunch Break with Yoga and Resistance Bands - January 10, 2023

Winter Mammal Tracking on Snowshoes - January 14, 2023

Third Age Learning Lakehead: Stories & Society - Wednesdays from January 18- February 15th, 2023

Pasta 101 - January 21, 2023

The Art - and Science - of Chocolate Making with DWN Chocolate - January 24, 2023

Native Plant 'seed bombs' - February 2, 2023


Some of the 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 virtual 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.
