PLATO is “where love of learning never gets old”. Our courses, coordinators, and participants contribute to this idea in a significant way. Members bring to the courses many different experiences and opinions.
But in our present day polarized society sometimes it is hard to listen to opinions that are opposite to our own deeply held views. We strive to make PLATO courses a space where members can discuss diverse viewpoints. Through these discussions we continue to learn from each other and expand or clarify our views. So, we ask everyone one to:
- Welcome the outside perspectives even if they are different than yours.
- Be serious listeners and be courteous to all members and their opinions.
If you are in Virtual course, remember that if your microphone and video are on, participants in the class can see and hear you. So please turn off your microphone and your video when you are not participating in the class.
Thank you for helping PLATO courses be a pleasant experience for all.
