At Masani Consulting, our main goal is to promote education by encouraging adults to become lifelong learners. One of Dr. Masani's favorite learning links is Roundstone Conversation (shown on the left).

Roundstone Conversation is organized annually by Dr. Leslie Van Gelder and Dr. Tim Robinson, and it takes place in Ireland. In 2013, the 11th gathering of Roundstone Conversation was hosted by Dr. Robinson at the Roundstone Quay in Roundstone, Co. Galway. 

Roundstone Conversation on Place and Story 2011 Cambridge, UK

The idea behind conversation is to bring together people from various disciplines whose work, in one way or another is related to place and story. In 2011, Roundstone Conversation invited Dr. Masani to share her work on narrative learning among multi-generations of Jamaican basket makers.

With an abundance of resources available, continuous learning is just a "link" away. We have included some of our favorite Learning Links for students, and other education practitioners. We hope you find these learning resource helpful for your personal and professional development.
