Our Human and Learning Odysseys

For the month of June, and for each month thereafter,  there are documentaries to view, to ponder, and to absorb into your human odyssey as you journey with your students in expanding your horizons. These documentaries can be a complement and supplement to the courses you facilitate in your learning odyssey. Join Odysseus in his 10 years of wandering on an intellectual quest before reaching home.

Explore your viewing options with Airwaves, your guide to Wisconsin Public Television’s three over-the-air broadcast channels.   View them anytime at:  wpt.org
