Adult Education Online Programme

Tuesday 21st April (17:00) - Tuesday 7th July 2020 (18:00)

Please note that you must register on Eventbrite for each University of Nottingham Adult Education Online session you wish to attend. 

When registering for an event, we will collect personal data from you (name and email only). Please read our privacy information for more detail about how we use data. We will be using Zoom to facilitate each session and will be subject to their terms of service. Please only register if you are happy for us to use your email address in Zoom to send you a meeting invitation. Please read this etiquette guide prior to taking part in your Zoom session.  

The number of places available is limited to encourage questions and discussion. One we reach the limit for this session, a waiting list will activate. We will add anyone registered and those on the waiting list to our mailing list to contact you about future events in this series. You can request to be removed from this mailing list at any time by emailing us.


The University of Nottingham has organised thirty-four special online discussion classes in response to the needs of the communities of Nottingham and the East Midlands. At a time when we are isolated by the coronavirus epidemic, the sessions provide an opportunity to discuss and learn about important topics.

The topics are of two kinds. Some are related to the coronavirus epidemic and the issues it raises. Others are of much more general interest. However, we hope all will provide an opportunity for intelligent and informed discussion of important matters.

Each session will last for one hour. After a very brief introduction by a session chair, the session tutor will give a presentation on the topic; this will last about ten minutes. Following this, there will be a discussion facilitated by the chair.

Registration is open to all adults. There is no fee. However, to facilitate free discussion, the number who can register for any session will be limited, and each discussion will be chaired by an expert adult educator from the University’s School of Education. You must register separately for each session you wish to attend.

The sessions will take place using Zoom. Those who register will be sent a link to the Zoom meeting by email. Zoom is easy to use  and you can view a brief guide to joining a Zoom meeting.

These events are open for registration

You can view the full programme of events, this is subject to amendment or cancellation if the coronavirus emergency rules change. Registrations for future events will open the week before the event takes place.
