Study Days & Short Courses

Study Days

Study Days provide all members with the opportunity to study a topic thought to be of general interest. In the past days have been arranged on Climate Change, Gardening for Wildlife and many other interesting topics.

Further study days will be listed below when they are arranged.

Short Courses

Many short courses are arranged by the u3a Trust, their relationship with leading organisations, built up over many years, has meant they are in a position to offer selected national events online ensuring that learning is still available to our u3as and their members. This includes events with the National Gallery, Royal Institution, Guildhall Art Gallery, and the British Library (for which there may be a charge).

They are also offering a number of workshops, webinars and interactive sessions delivered by members for members, which are free to join. Full details here.

Many online events are being delivered via the Zoom video conferencing/webinar platform. They have some ‘How to Guides‘ and are offering ‘Online Tutorials‘ for using Zoom that may assist you if you are not familiar with this tool.

Secret History - Stephen Davis

Thursday, 14 July 2022, 2:00 pm

The first version of a story is often the one that is remembered – even if it is wrong. Governments know this, so when disaster strikes or their blunders are in danger of being exposed, they rush out their version of the story. That is their history but behind that is a secret history – the reality that never quite sees the full light of day.

Author, journalist, TV producer, podcaster and educator Stephen Davis has been reporting and teaching about Secret History for three decades. He has studied misinformation and disinformation and developed a new university course to combat it. His investigations have exposed government cover-ups all over the world.

In this talk, Davis will explain the process of creating and spreading distorted versions of history.
