Spring Knowledge Exchange Classes at GSU

University Park, IL-(ENEWSPF)- “Never stop learning” could be the mantra of students in The Knowledge Exchange, a program from the School of Extended Learning at Governors State University. Classes are offered for adults on a wide range of topics. Registration for spring classes is underway.  Classes begin on April 5, and are held Fridays, from 10 a.m. to noon, and 1 to 3 p.m., through May 24.

The Knowledge Exchange course offerings encompass a variety of interests, including history classes focusing on the Civil War and the history and culture of Native North America, as well as a Cinema Studies course based around globally and socially relevant documentaries. There is also a course of play readings in which participants read roles aloud and discuss aspects of the works. In another course offering, participants use film and readings in “Achieving Wholeness and Wellness through a Study of Carl Jung.”

The Knowledge Exchange is also offering all participants a free special presentation “Climate Change: The Earth Calls to Us,” on Friday, April 26, from noon to 1 p.m. This informational session on climate change includes an enlightening Power Point presentation with accompanying lecture by Richard Treptow, an environmental services professional.

The Knowledge Exchange is a continuation of the former Adult Learning Exchange (T.A.L.E.) with the same focus – to continue to offer unique and diverse non-credited courses at a reasonable price ($73.00 per class, $28 for an additional class). Classes are designed for participants aged 55 years and over and provide a relaxed and friendly environment, open to shared learning, and the free exchange of opinions and ideas.  Classes are peer-led by a community of dedicated volunteers including GSU faculty and many former Exchange students.
