Live. Learn. Share.
Dear Lifelong Learners,
Last week, we were in the midst of a deep freeze weather-wise, but let me assure you, at Chesapeake Forum the atmosphere is warm and inviting.
In an effort to make our courses easy to participate in, I thought you'd like to know that our recordings of Live Zoom courses have a closed caption option. You can activate the closed caption selection by moving your cursor over the menu at the bottom of the page when you log onto the course.
In March, we are pleased to add two single session courses: Sammi Ocher and Pickering Creek present Keystone Species in Maryland, and Art Across Cultures, a FREE docent lead tour with the Smithsonian's National Museum of Asian Art.
Ray Vergne is back with the Part II of his popular course from last Fall, The Many Faces of Fascism. (Part I of this course is available in our Archives at chesapeakeforum.org if you want to catch up.)
We'd love for you to connect with two new Chesapeake Forum instructors. Let's Look at Artificial Intelligence, with Larry Rudner. Or you might want to join Sam Hilgartner in Part I of his discussion of Great Maritime Literature.
Rich Wagner is back teaching this semester with the two session course, Prehistoric Human Migration.
We welcome your comments and suggestions. Please send any inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org. Remember, Chesapeake Forum is an all-volunteer organization. If you are interested in leading a future course, or if you'd like to know more about volunteering to be on one of our committees, we'd like to hear from you!
President, Chesapeake Forum
Chesapeake Forum is an intellectual cooperative of lifelong learning, with courses planned, run, and led by dedicated volunteer faculty. Chesapeake Forum is open to everyone who wishes to learn, and welcomes anyone willing to listen and discuss a myriad of topics with an open mind and a respectful curiosity for the views of others.
With a continuously changing curriculum, Chesapeake Forum offers sessions on current events, science, literature, history, art, music, and writing along with outdoor courses on birding, ecology, and much more. There is also an occasional trip to museums or historic sites.
Chesapeake Forum welcomes anyone willing to share their knowledge, experience, or passion. If you are interested in leading a Chesapeake Forum course, please complete the online course proposal form via the link provided below.
Chesapeake Forum, an Academy for Lifelong Learning, provides courses and discussions on a wide variety of topics for people of all ages and backgrounds where ideas are shared with civility and mutual respect.
