Learning Communities for Winter Quarter 2018

 

Learning communities are a mash up of two distinct courses, taught by two fabulous instructors, for double the credits and double the time. Students say learning communities help them to think about subjects in new and more meaningful ways. Cascadia is offering the following three learning communities during Winter Quarter.


 

From Caravaggio to the Cat Video

Chris Gildow and Geeta Sadashivan

This learning community combines ART& 100 and ENGL& 102, introducing students to art appreciation and research methods. We will explore the complicated question, “What is Art?” With the rise of social media such as Instagram, artists are able to share their work as never before with a global audience. This course will help you think critically by increasing your exposure to diverse forms of art along with their history and cultural context. You will also develop skills in finding and using sources to answer complex questions about the role and effects of art.
