E1006: Solutions to Climate Change in Splash Fall 2021 (Nov. 14, 2021)
Do you hear about climate change in the news and feel scared and hopeless? It turns out there is plenty of hope and optimism to be found in a number of solutions to climate change! In this class, we will talk about the causes of climate change and environmental destruction (like increased agriculture and demand for electricity), and proposed solutions (like wind turbines, solar energy, and plant-based diets). We will discuss the pros and cons of these solutions, obstructions in implementing them, and reasons for hope. This class will be part lecture and part discussion. You are invited but definitely not required to participate.


H1007: Emotional Intelligence in Splash Fall 2021 (Nov. 14, 2021)

Then we will talk about what to do with those feelings. This class will be part lecture (me talking at you) and part discussion (typing in the zoom chat or speaking). You are invited but definitely not required to participate.

In this class, we will talk about proposed solutions such as carbon capture and storage, renewable energy, emissions reductions, geoengineering, sustainable development, and hydrogen fuel cells! (note: this list of solutions is subject to change before the actual class) We will discuss the pros and cons of these solutions and obstructions in implementing them. This class will be part lecture and part discussion. You are invited but definitely not required to participate.


X554: Healthy Coping Skills Workshop in Splash Fall 2017 (Nov. 04, 2017)
If you’re going through a tough time, dealing with a mental illness, or struggling with any problem, it’s important to be able to cope in healthy ways. This class will give you a chance to learn some new, healthy coping skills or strengthen the ones you already have. We’ll talk about *and try* things like mindfulness and yoga, making art, laughing, helping others, writing, socializing, and reaching out to resources. (note: these might not be the exact things we do) There are many ways to take care of yourself in a positive way, and this class will cover just a few. Not every technique will work for everyone, but hopefully you’ll come away from this class with a new skill to add to your toolkit! (Note: participation in all activities is optional, and I would never force you to do something that's uncomfortable for you!)
