What is Third Age Learning (TAL)?

Third Age Learning is a volunteer organization that provides lecture series by professors and community experts to Waterloo Region audiences. TAL presents eclectic, continuing-education challenges for active, mature minds every fall and winter.

Covid-19 Update for Fall 2020

Rather than our traditional in-person gatherings, for the Fall 2020 season, lectures will be presented using virtual online webinar technology. From the comfort of your own home and free of charge, you will be able to listen to our captivating speakers, watch their slides on your monitor and interact with them through your questions and comments.

Because the virtual lectures that we’re offering this fall are an experiment, all costs will be covered by reserves in TAL-KW’s bank account. As a result, these lectures will be provided to you free of charge! We would like your feedback on this experiment to support future quality events.

Note that registration for our free Fall Series is now closed.
