Community Conversations: Learning Communities for the Future

September 12 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

How do we create learning communities for the future? Education is changing. Tech brings master curricula to any device. Private, home and charter schools change the way youth learn. More after-school, summer and extra-curricular offerings exist. Early learning, vocational re-training, entrepreneur mentoring and adult learning programs extend the breadth of education. We ask our speakers how their programs fit into the fabric of a regional learning community. Then we ask them to dream about how they might work together with other resources and organizations to make a more vibrant learning habitat for residents of all ages.

Community Conversations begin with short presentations by our guest panel and then the floor is open to conversation, comments, and thoughts and all are welcome to participate.

The Learning Communities panel includes Mary Lou O’Neil, School-to-Career Coordinator; Corinne Chronopoulos, Library Director; Dr. Kim Mooney, President, Franklin Pierce University; and Susie Spikol-Faber, Community Programs Coordinator, Teacher and Naturalist, Harris Center for Conservation Education. Our moderator for the evening will be Jeanne Dietsch.

Community Conversations is a collaborative program series presented by the Monadnock Center for History and Culture and the Monadnock Ledger Transcript. The series is designed to examine issues impacting our communities from a local perspective and to encourage civil dialogue and civic engagement.


Community Conversations are generously sponsored by Harlow’s Pub.
