No matter what we do from 9 to 5, we never stop learning. But we rarely make the time to direct our learning when it is not tied to a degree or a certificate. PLACE offers unique, community-based opportunities for adults to engage in educational programs rooted in the UW–Madison School of Education’s research and expertise. From Summer Arts Studio to Arts Integration training, you will find diverse, cultural experiences to enrich your inner-student.
Our Lifelong Learning programs provide transformational learning experiences for a diverse audience of participants. These noncredit offerings in education, art, and health allow you to develop skills while building community among like-minded colleagues.
With a variety of opportunities and more on the way, you’re sure to find something that fulfills your inquisitive spirit in the Lifelong Learning programs at PLACE.
