Exploring New Concepts of Retirement Education    

Curriculum Committee

The ENCORE by-laws state:
"The Curriculum Committee shall plan appropriate courses for each program term to support and advance the educational goals of ENCORE."

How exactly is that task accomplished? How does an idea become a class?

Ideas for classes come from individual ENCORE members, committee members and potential instructors. To make a request or propose a class, please submit a Class Proposal Form. This form can also be obtained from curriculum committee members. These forms are used by potential instructors to submit ideas to the curriculum committee. Class proposals are submitted via email to a committee member. Proposals can be for fall, winter or spring terms. Some classes are ongoing for more than one term; Science Exchange is an examples.

After review of the proposals by the curriculum committee, the process of scheduling days, times, and venues is begun. Instructor's preferences are considered and an effort is made to meet their requests.

Anyone interested in presenting a class is urged to submit a proposal or to contact a Committee member. Committee members are:

Reta Lindstrom, Chair
Anne Gant, Secretary
Alan Batchelder
Erhard Gross
John Markham
Michael McGonigle
John Ryan
Frank Spence
Tish Tarver
Sue Zerangue

The committee meets the second Monday of the month at 1:00 pm.

These should be especially useful for soft-voiced speakers, for outdoor use or for use in more noisy environments. The speakers will be available for "check out" from the Community Education Office 109D Towler Hall, Clatsop Community College. (Mary Kemhus or Evie Berger).
