It’s just over twenty years since I did any really serious studying. A few years ago I did GCSE Maths – I quite enjoyed that. My locality project means learning, but it’s not formal and is unstructured.
I’d quite like to do something. There are couple of A’levels I’d quite like to do. Back in my Open University days, I did a module THD204, Technology in Society. This was one the modules that required discussion between students, one of the questions was; Is it society that causes changes in technology, or is it technology that triggers changes in society?
It was a course that involved sociologists and technologists. As you can imagine it was a fiery mix, but in a very friendly way. It was without doubt one of my favourite modules, I really enjoyed it. If the OU were still running that course, I’d happily do it again. Because of the way the course worked, it was text based, not face to face, so debates were conducted in relatively slow time, which gave me a chance to ponder responses.
My brain can cope with debating at that speed. I’d really like to find a similar course, perhaps not technology related. I’d be seriously interested.
