Course Description

This course is for those interested in current events. Each week we will discuss news/issues from around the world and at home. The facilitator will provide an agenda and members of the class are permitted to propose additional discussion topics. Active participation is encouraged (but not mandatory), since it expands our understanding of the many perspectives that might, and do, affect us. Discussions are enriched by the variety of class members' backgrounds, expertise, and viewpoints. Topics are discussed knowledgeably, respectfully, and, sometimes, with passion, but we always end with humor. Each facilitator is a news/politics junkie and has led discussions many times. Each brings his/her own distinctive style and background to the course, and, most importantly, each will encourage a wide selection of views from class members. We are especially looking for members who represent points of view from across the political spectrum. | Active participation; Facilitated discussion; Zoom breakouts.
