• SAGE Study Groups

SAGE—Stimulate, Advance, and Guide Education

The most active component of SAGE is our study groups. Study groups are not taught by instructors; rather, a facilitator assists in coordinating the presentations of group members and in moderating the discussions.

An important aspect of study groups is their small size (maximum 15 participants). Group members quickly get to know each other, and learning takes place in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere.

There is a limited number of fee waivers available for all study groups. Study groups happen through your initiative, so if there is a subject you would love to learn more about and you are willing to facilitate a group next term, please give Janet McDonald a call at 250-721-8827.

The following study groups are offered this term:

  • I Have Seen the Future and it is…? offered at UVic
  • Something I Want to Share... offered at Goward House 
  • title TBA offered at Mary Winspear Centre 

Online registration temporarily unavailable


I Have Seen the Future and it is…?

In this SAGE study group, we will focus on Yuval Harari's latest book, 21 Lessons for the 21st Century, and in particular, critically examine his considerations of the future from an anthropological and ecological perspective. Each person will select one of Harari’s points from this book and share their understanding and interpretation of that point in a brief presentation.
