"People can learn in a not-for-credit environment, free of formal evaluation and the concern about credit," says Don Kasta, who heads the continuing ed office. Courses are of various lengths: eight Wednesday evenings, or a single evening, or three Saturday mornings, or a single Friday from 9 to 5.
UW faculty and staff are eligible for a 25 per cent discount on course fees (which range from $40 to $355). Winter continuing education calendars are available from the continuing ed office at conted@corr1, phone ext. 4002.
"Parks and protected areas offer a widening array of services to society which are often insufficiently understood and taken into account in education, planning, management and decision-making," says Gordon Nelson, geography professor who is chair of the heritage centre. He said the forum is aimed at making the services -- and issues surrounding them -- better understood. Of particular concern: water quality in Lake Erie.
Opening in East Campus Hall are two shows: "Harmonic Proportions", recent drawings by Bruce Taylor, and "The Scratch Drawings" by Hugh Leroy. A reception to mark the opening is set for 5 p.m.
