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 were offered in spring 2019 term:
- I Have Seen the Future and it is…? offered at UVic
- Something I Want to Share... offered at Goward House
- Hobbies offered at Mary Winspear Centre
