The Continuing Education course catalog is available online for fall 2014 and offers a wide-range of courses that cater to individual's interests and skill-building needs. Registration will begin on Monday, Aug. 18.
Course topics range from foreign language, home improvement, fitness, personal enrichment, cooking, and more. New this year are courses including Internet Marketing, Social Media for Beginners, How to Use Facebook for Business, Aging to Wellness, and The Forgiveness Journey.
The courses are offered for a relatively low cost. Although the district advertises to community members, anyone can enroll in a continuing education course. Senior Citizens -- over the age of 62 -- also can apply for a District 211 Gold Card that allows them to receive discounted course fees.
Continuing education has been available to community members for more than 50 years, and continues to grow. Each year, there are different courses available, with several different sections to accommodate different schedules. Courses not only provide learning opportunities to the community, but also different teaching opportunities for District 211 teachers. Some can teach courses that they specialize in and in a classroom environment that is different from teaching high school students.
