U3A Stonnington has created a Knowledge Hub for their members, and for other U3A's to share.
We welcome their initiative and thank them for sharing. Here is their description.
The Knowledge Hub has been developed by U3A Stonnington to provide a facility for members, and anyone else using the U3A Stonnington website, to access a number of leading public affairs, policy and knowledge sites in Australia and overseas.
The reason behind development was to provide ready access to knowledge resources for U3A members to use easily. The Knowledge Hub provides members with the capacity to
- access a site to obtain the detail of research or comments on which news reports are based
- access a site to further research a particular topic in which they are interested or
- develop confidence in seeking and accessing research and comment on current issues
to further develop their knowledge and understanding.
However, another reason The Knowledge Hub was developed was to help members who, because of health or other reasons, could not attend classes but wanted to be actively involved intellectually in understanding what is happening in the world.
