News About the Film Festival and Fall 2020 Courses

x

The Cannon Valley Elder Collegium Board met on 20 May and completed two important actions.  First, in response to a recommendation from the Film Festival Committee, the Board unanimously approved a motion to cancel the festival for this year.  Large gatherings, especially of vulnerable groups such as elders are not advised, much less the small seminar-style meetings that follow the screenings.  The good news is that plans for next summer will start with the groundwork laid by the committee this year.

Second, the Elder Collegium will offer courses for Fall 2020; courses will be available via video conferencing software, as recommended by the Curriculum Committee and unanimously approved by the Board.  The number of courses, the schedule, the enrollment limits, and detailed course descriptions are under development now.  As soon as possible, the website will feature those specifics as well as registration materials.  Students can expect additional information on the technical equipment needed to participate as well as advice on managing discussion, questions, and other important features of an Elder Collegium class.  A Fall 2020 edition of the newsletter will also provide the fall course details.

Thanks to the response to our informal poll, we know that some of us will not want to return to classes until meeting in person in a classroom is possible.  However, a great many of us miss our colleagues and the stimulation of classes enough to try out the video experience.  The Board members look forward to the adventure that fall term presents.  Thank you in advance for your participation.
