Learners from the Peterborough and Durham communities and beyond are encouraged to refresh their skills and open their minds to fresh perspectives with online courses and virtual workshop offerings from Continuing Education at Trent University.
Registration is now open for all six- and eight-week courses, as well as weekend workshops, starting as early as March 21 and running through to May. Spring courses span a variety of topics and interests including language, health and well-being, computers, arts, and (the always popular) American Sign Language. Participants can also discover some of Canada’s rich multicultural traditions, take part in history and writing classes, and learn about the importance of self-care and creating inclusive spaces.
“The Spring always brings new opportunities, and with our largest selection of courses ever, Trent Continuing Education, is providing an avenue to make friends and gain experiences,” says Dr. Michael Eamon, principal of Catharine Parr Traill College and director of Continuing Education at Trent. “Our popular spring term offers affordable classes that offer something new to brighten your day, connect with new people, and a means to expand your mind.”
In addition to multi-week courses, a variety of workshops facilitated by members of the community will provide learners with the chance to get creative with photography, writing and painting.
Registration for all courses and workshops is available online at trentu.ca/continuingeducation. Courses start at $190 (including HST) for the series, and workshops start at just $35 (including HST), plus appropriate materials.
