Community Ed Classes To Enliven Your Work-From-Om Life
This edition of ‘Catch the Wave’ features an exciting lineup of classes and workshops for small business owners (beginning on facing page). Further in the publication, you’ll find our rich assortment of Community Education courses. It’s not quite ‘Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance,’ but we are offering Yoga ... and roadside automobile repair, among a number of other creative and engaging opportunities to step out of your COVID routine.
Spring and Summer Credit Course Lineups
If you’ve had enough of placing your college plans on pause during the pandemic, we’re here for you. This Spring, we’ll be offering most classes in safe online (Zoom, etc.) formats, supported by regular contact with talented, friendly (and very human!) faculty, right here on the Oregon Coast. Our Spring and Summer terms are built to prepare you to meet your academic and career goals, and to be ready for the Fall Term, when it’s likely much more in-person instruction will be offered, depending on the state of the pandemic by then.
Welcome! Inside this edition of Catch the Wave, you’ll find a rich assortment of non-credit community education and small business courses from which to choose to brighten up your spring. Anyone can register for these fun, affordable classes. Visit us online at oregoncoast.edu/communityed or oregoncoast.edu/sbdc to find the lineups, along with links to easy online registration and payment. Or, call us at 541-996-6222, and register for the classes you want by phone. And, flip to the center of this publication to review this term’s lineup of credit courses, too! You’ll also find Summer 2021’s classes. This Summer’s term is designed to help get folks who intend to launch their college career in earnest in the Fall but who need to shore up some pre-requisite courses beforehand.

a summer built to help you start strong in the Fall Term new summer term is built to get you ready to succeed this fall
tudents planning on starting College for the first time in the Fall can start strong by brushing up their writing, math, or reading skills this summer. •
Developmental writing faculty, Kahea (Kai) Gaspar will be teaching Introduction to College Writing on Tues, Wed, and Thurs nights.
• Students wanting to study a biological science field (like pre-Med/pre-Vet, Fish and Wildlife, Ecology, Animal Science, Agriculture, etc) need to take the year-long Biology sequence for Science Majors that starts in the Fall. In order to start the sequence, students must take (or test out of) CH 151, Preparatory Chemistry. This course also prepares students to take the yearlong Chemistry sequence for Science Majors.
Education faculty and advisor, Theresa Harper will be teaching College Reading online.
• Science Faculty, Dr. Grant Mitman will be teaching CH 151 on TWR morning this summer. Dr. Mitman is also teaching CH 151 in the Spring.
Math Faculty, Jennifer Flemming will be teaching Introduction to Algebra Parts I and II. Jennifer was part of a team of faculty (that included Murray Tillson and Alison Williams) who worked on redesigning the developmental math sequence last summer at OCCC. Now, a student can essentially take two courses simultaneously (MTH 60 Introduction to Algebra Part I and MTH 65 Introduction to Algebra Part 2). Sound scary? Jennifer doesn’t think so. Students who started the new course (called MTH 66) this winter are doing well. This cuts down on the time it takes students to complete the Math sequence and saves money. Classes are scheduled M, T, W and R mornings so students can work on Math in the morning and be at work before noon.
Summer term is built to fit around your work (and recreation) schedule.
Math Faculty, Alison Williams will be teaching MTH 95 Intermediate Algebra online. This courses prepares students to take College level math courses in the Fall. Very often, math prevents students from completing college. At OCCC, our kind and dedicated professionals work with students to identify the correct math course to start with, and then help students complete required math courses early in their college experience. For students not pursuing careers that require high skills in mathematics, the college offers MTH 105, Math in Society. MTH 105 has the highest completion rate of any math course offered at OCCC and is offered in the Fall, Winter, and Spring. Successful completion of MTH 95 (or MTH 98 offered in the Spring) is required to take MTH 105. Students wanting to study Nursing must take the yearlong Anatomy and Physiology Sequence that starts in the Fall. In order to start the sequence, students must take Biology 112, Cell Biology Biology Faculty, Matt Fisher, is teaching Biology 112 on TWR mornings this summer (and in the evening in the spring)
14 • register: 541-867-8501 • spring 2021
• Students wanting to study Engineering (and a number of related STEM fields like math, geology, chemistry, physics, etc.) need to take the year-long calculus-based Physics sequence. In order to start the sequence, students must complete MTH 252, Calculus II (Integral Calculus). This course also prepares students for Calculus III (Vector Calculus) offered in the Fall. Math Faculty, Alison Williams, is teaching MTH 252 on TWR (Tues., Wed., & Thurs.) evenings this summer. •
Students wanting to study STEM fields will usually need to take at least one term of Calculus. MTH 251, Calculus I will be offered at OCCC in Winter 2022. In order to start MTH 251 in the Winter, students will need to take MTH 112 Trigonometry in Fall 2021. And in order to take MTH 112 Trigonometry in the Fall, students will need to take MTH 111 (College Algebra) in Spring 2021 or Summer 2021. Math Faculty, Jingyi You, will be teaching MTH 111 online in the Spring and Summer.
Students wanting to complete General Education requirements for their degree, and perhaps take a lighter load in the Fall can take classes in the summer of 2021. •

As a biology instructor at OCCC, I have used the shift to online teaching to my advantage. For example, helping students with their coursework outside of class is easier now, thanks to Zoom.
teaching biology in the time of COVID | By Matthew Fisher As the global pandemic reshaped our society, we were forced to rethink many routine activities such as shopping, visiting friends, and learning. For many students, the term ‘going to school’ is suddenly a misnomer, as few students physically visit a classroom. Instead, teaching and learning is mostly done through online platforms such as Zoom. How do students get the same quality education in such a drastically changed learning environment? As a biology instructor at OCCC, I have used the shift to online teaching to my advantage. For example, helping students with their coursework outside of class is easier now thanks to Zoom. Instead of traditional office hours that required students to travel to campus to meet with me, I can now talk with students regardless of where they are, whether they’re on a work break or at home caring for their kids. I have also used teleconferencing to bring new perspectives and expertise into my courses. For example, in-between appointments with her patients, an optometrist in Lincoln City was able to talk to my human anatomy and physiology students about ocular anatomy and health, giving real-world examples from her
clinical experience. Additionally, in my introductory biology course, a geneticist from the National Genomics Center for Wildlife and Fish Conservation, located in Montana, was able to discuss with my students how tiny amounts of DNA in the environment are being used to monitor populations of endangered wildlife. My biology students are studying to become nurses, doctors, wildlife biologists, and more. OCCC recognized the importance of getting these students into the laboratory to support their education. At the start of the academic year, the college developed a COVID educational plan that allows me to teach my lectures online while offering students in-person laboratory experience at our Newport campus. We can do this safely and responsibly using physical distancing, masks, hand washing, and regular disinfection of laboratory rooms. Despite these challenging times, I am glad that students can continue to achieve their academic goals.
