Continuing Education at Asbury

Explore Lifelong Learning at Asbury Methodist Village

Remember all of those things you said you wanted to learn, but put off because life got in the way? At Asbury Methodist Village, now is the time. The brain may not be a muscle, but it needs stimulation to stay in top form. Whether you take computer classes, join a new club, enroll in Asbury’s Brain Waves or tap into your inner reporter at the campus television station or newspaper, you can welcome new possibilities into your life.

At the resident-run Keese School of Continuing Education, dozens of lectures and tours in history, science, art and music, current events each semester ensure there is always something new and interesting to learn. View a recent Keese School Course Catalog.

And Asbury Methodist Village’s unique partnership with the Osher Institute of Lifelong Learning at Johns Hopkins University allows associate members to enjoy several popular Osher courses hosted on Asbury’s campus, while full members have access to all of Osher’s offerings at Johns Hopkins University’s nearby Silver Spring, Md., campus.

Brain Waves – Fitness for Your Brain

Asbury Methodist Village’s unique Brain Waves program takes a comprehensive look at how the brain functions and how to maximize its health as we get older. Learn simple and active ways to keep your brain fit and combat common risks that may contribute to memory loss based on the latest research. In 2019, Asbury added BrainHQ’s Posit Science technology to its Brain Waves program, managed by the community’s full-time Brain Health Advocate. Brain Waves received an Innovator of the Year Award from the International Council on Active Aging.

 Brain Waves is also open to people who do not live at Asbury. For more information, email Susan Grotenhuis or call 301-216-4955.
