Why Embrace Online Learning in Retirement?
At Road Scholar, we believe that learning is the journey of a lifetime. Our mission is to inspire adults to learn, discover and travel – because we believe that staying curious about the world makes life extraordinary. Meeting new people, touching history where it happened and delving deep into unfamiliar cultures and landscapes help us continue to find personal fulfillment in retirement.
Our transformative learning adventures take Road Scholars on educational journeys in 150 countries and all 50 U.S. states, but learning in retirement can take place at home too. In fact, with coronavirus affecting travel all over the world, online learning has taken center stage in recent weeks. The Internet is a powerful tool that can bring our community of lifelong learners together during this time of social distancing and self-isolation. It’s more important, now than ever, to stay connected.
However, with the sheer number of online learning opportunities available for seniors, it can be difficult to know where to start. That’s why we’ve compiled the ultimate resource for lifelong learning from home!
From virtual museum tours to fascinating lectures from our experts around the world, we’ve put together a comprehensive list of online learning experiences for seniors. For those who wish to share their deep love of travel, you’ll also learn how to remotely connect with other Road Scholars who have adopted the philosophy of lifelong learning into their own lives by participating in globetrotting adventures.
