My degrees are not from an Ivy League institution, but I “take” Ivy League classes now via free online video classes. Just for fun, I always intended to sit in on history lectures when I retire. But now with the magic of the Internet, I can do this in my comfy chair and snuggly slippers at home and don’t even have to wait for retirement.
The online universities website has a list of video lectures that are interesting and wonderful for expanding your horizons. Most of these courses can be downloaded to an mp3 player, so I’ll be happily commuting to my job while listening to lectures.
In addition, I like to listen to lectures while typing my lesson plans. As I type, I’m listening to a history lecture by a Yale professor about the Hebrew Torah. One of the advantages of being a person with undiagnosed ADD is that you CAN do several things at the same time. But that’s another post ..
