From left, Caroline Freeman '21 of Needham, Mass., and Caroline Bogue '21 of Glastonbury, Conn., watch a film about Commons made by students in the Short Term course, "Filmmaking, The Creative Process," taught by filmmaker Wiebke von Carolsfeld. They were attending the May 23 “Showcase in Perry Atrium: The PTCs & Course (re)Designs,” the annual Short Term celebration that presents intensive, practical collaborations that are transforming teaching at Bates.
In the Course (Re)design projects, students work side-by-side with faculty to redesign learning experiences of great meaning to them. Meanwhile, visiting Short Term Practitioners from all corners of industry bring skills and expertise to enhance the applicability of the Bates education to a life of meaningful work.
Swipe left to see a few more scenes from the showcase that included, among others, “Science Journalism and Outreach” with Laura Poppick ’10, “Organismal Biology, with Andrew Mountcastle and Carla Essenberg,” and “Six Beverages That Changed the World, with Jim Hughes.”
