For several Talbot County residents with a quest for lifetime learning, the fate of the Chesapeake Forum this fall was a major concern in this new era of COVID. With 600 registrations last year for dozens of intellectually challenging courses, the Forum has become an essential part of Talbot County’s quality of life for many. The thought that the coronavirus crisis might temporarily suspend this community asset would have made a very hard Fall for its students.
To the relief of its alumni and newcomers, the opposite is actually the truth. Indeed, the Chesapeake Forum is doubling down on its mission with the creative application of tele-learning.
With the use of Zoom video conferencing software, the Forum is not only offering a similar range of courses from last year but can reach countless other students who might not have been able to get to a classroom in the past physically.
The Spy chatted with Forum board members Glory Aiken and John Miller about the 2020-21 Chesapeake Forum a few days ago.
