OSHR 1051 - International Current Events Roundtable

  • Noncredit

This course is offered through the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Colorado State University. You must be a member of Osher to enroll in this course.

International current events present us with unending and transforming circumstances. This new format is designed as a participatory round-table that meets weekly for six weeks for a two-hour discussion and analysis of on-going world events. There will be a moderator, but no single presenter or lecturer. If you are interested in learning and sharing ideas, concepts, and interpretations related to worldwide current events, and willing to participate actively over a six-week time period, this roundtable is for you!

Reommended Reading: Daily news items from Newspapers, Internet, International News magazine, e.g., "The Economist," "Foreign Affairs," "Christian Science Monitor,"etc.

Please Note: October 11 class time is 3-5 pm; no class November 8

Noncredit courses do not produce academic credit nor appear on a Colorado State University academic transcript.
