Lifelong learning

Lifelong Learning

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.

These are just some of the Lifelong Learning programs coming up in the next year:

  • Summer Arts Studio
  • Wisconsin Arts Integration Symposium
  • Play Make Learn

With a wide 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.
