uch to my surprise, I have been working in the field of continuing education for more than 20 years. Each year I get to see the transformations that take place in our students as they achieve their goals, conquer their fears and broaden their horizons. I also get to witness what an impact a talented instructor, a compassionate staff member or a novel approach can have in supporting educational pursuits. It is rewarding work and it allows us to see the best in our students, our instructors and our staff. We often hear about the importance of lifelong learning —how we need to keep our knowledge and skills current in this world of ever-changing technology, demographics, social norms or political landscapes. I work in continuing education because I think we can help people be better equipped to flourish in this world. We have leading edge instructors, innovative technologies and an understanding of the skills that are necessary to succeed in many disciplines. We live in a large, complex, inter-connected world. Yet, we are all individuals. Our educational ambitions, and the way we want to play out this need for lifelong learning, should reflect that. Some of us need a credential in a specific field, something that can be recognized in your industry or organization. Others have needs that cut across disciplines. Still others seek a foundation in a specific career or field of study. Some of us work best when we learn in a face-toface environment, others need the flexibility of an online format. Having a program that reflects your needs, your career stage and your aspirations is important. I believe the Division of Continuing Studies can respond to these diverse needs. In fact, that is really what we are all about.

A recently approved program in Continuing Studies is the Certificate in General Studies. This program enables you to design your own certificate to respond to your individual learning needs. As a student, you can select from a wide range of individual courses to bundle together a program that works for you. This will give you a recognized credential and a program that reflects your individual needs and interests. It is another option at your fingertips when you think about how you are going to respond to the many new challenges we face.

We need to evolve, keep current and be aware of our world and the changes we face. Lifelong learning is a bit of an overused term. The essence of it, however, is very real. We need to evolve, keep current and be aware of our world and the changes we face. Today’s work world requires us to be nimble. Your educational path needs that same flexibility. That is why we have developed the Certificate in General Studies. It puts you in the driver’s seat to define your learning goals and develop a program that reflects your set of distinct learning outcomes. Seeing our students succeed is why we work in continuing education. It is why I have stayed in the field for more than 20 years and it is why we will continue to innovate, evolve and adapt our programming.

FULL THROTTLE THROUGH THE ARTS WITH INSTRUCTOR JOHN LUCAS

by MJ Turner, Continuing Studies

J

ohn Lucas describes himself as “an actor who happens to sing and dance.” Having had one foot in theatre and the other in academia all his life has made him feel like “the illegitimate offspring of Northrop Frye and Daffy Duck,” he says, adding matter-offactly that he actually knew Northrop Frye. His great loves in life are theatre, music and cooking. He still finds time to teach regularly through Continuing Studies at UVic. His courses have been varied—fine art, movies and even automobile design— and he has never repeated one, always coming up with something new drawn from a seemingly inexhaustible energy for the arts in general.

10

He describes Continuing Studies as a kind of “old professors’ heaven”—stimulating, fun, never boring. “Only boring people are bored,” he adds. This fall, Lucas is teaching a course on Andrew Wyeth, one of the most popular and beloved

Only boring people are bored. 11


John Lucas continued from pg. 11

Over the years, Lucas has directed 26 productions of Shakespeare plays. Tell us what you think of this article

American artists of the twentieth century and, according to Lucas, one of the most controversial: an artist whose work is either loved or reviled, particularly in any discussion of modern art. Next spring, he has plans for a course on Cole Porter. No stranger to learning new things at any stage in life, Lucas earned a degree in art history in his 40s. As well as working in theatre, he was head of the English department at Dawson College in Montreal. He says that his studies in art history revolutionized both his teaching and directing. Growing up, he was surrounded by art—his father was an art dealer and historian. The family spent 10 years living in Paris, another formative experience for Lucas. “There was no

12 

junk food for me as a child,” he says without regret. Over the past 50 years he has mastered the art of French and Italian cooking. In true European style he still shops for fresh ingredients each day and creates meals from scratch. John started his professional career as an actor at the age of 22 in a tour of the northeastern U.S., as Simon Bliss in Noel Coward’s Hay Fever. By 24 he was directing. Over the years, Lucas has directed 26 productions of Shakespeare plays as well as many other types of work, such as Joe Pintauro’s The Raft of the Medusa—the first AIDS-themed play produced by a mainstage company—in Montréal at the Centaur Theatre. Talking to John in his beautiful garden—an ongoing project of artistic

expression—nestled at the edge of Victoria, one realizes that there can be very few, if any, dull moments in this man’s life. Music has been a constant thread too. Lucas was a church soloist at the age of eight and, two years later, made his radio debut in the U.S., on a show called “Let’s Pretend.” With obvious delight he can still sing the theme song flawlessly. At the beginning of our interview he was just finishing a coaching session at the grand piano with one of his music students, an already accomplished musician but, like Lucas, someone for whom good, even very good, is never quite good enough.

People Painting Victoria—1795 to 2005 NEW

The history of Victoria is unique and colourful. This lavishly illustrated, six-part history presents our story, as revealed through the biographies of artists who painted this place, including: • The First Nations at Home on the South Island • Exploration: Cook, Quadra, Vancouver; Kane, Hind, Crease • Colonials and the CPR: Roper, Whymper, O’Brien, Bell-Smith, Mower Martin, Matthews

ART HISTORY NEW

Andrew Wyeth and his World

Andrew Wyeth was, and remains, one of the most popular and beloved American artists of the twentieth century. He is also one of the most controversial: an artist whose work was either loved or reviled, particularly in any discussion of modern art. Either way, his work is provocative. His world is mainly that of rural America, a sometimes-mythical place, which he painted in a realist style freighted with mystery. This course will examine his life and career and set it against the work of his contemporary abstract and realist artists, like Grant Wood, Jackson Pollack, Andy Warhol and others.

• Emily Carr Paints Victoria • Realists: Phillips, Goodall, Hughes, Shadbolt, Glyde • Up to Date: Max Bates, Siebner, Wilkinson, Ciccimarra, Colin Graham, Glenn Howarth Instructor: Robert Amos is a graduate of York University, a member of the Royal Canadian Academy of the Arts and an Honorary Citizen of Victoria. Best known for his column, On Art, which has appeared weekly in the Victoria Times Colonist for the past 28 years, he makes his living painting pictures of this city.

From Ravenstail and Chilkat robes and button blankets to hats and baskets for every reason, Northwest Coast women have always created from a wealth of indigenous materials. While historically women did not carve poles or masks, this changed profoundly in the 20th century so that now an examination of First Nations women artists includes carvers, printmakers, engravers, jewellers, textile designers and more. In this course, we will consider the art as first encountered by Spanish, British and American explorers and traders in the 18th century and trace the innovation and change as the period of contact came to the Northwest Coast. A selection of important 20th and 21st century women artists, such as Ellen Neel, Freda Diesing and Susan Point, will be studied. Each lecture will provide many examples of artwork from private, as well as public, collections.

Francisco Goya

Considered by many to be the greatest artist of the nineteenth century, Francisco José de Goya y Lucientes chronicles, through his art, the personal, social and political worlds of that century with virtually unparalleled power and depth. He was a court painter—but one with a critical eye turned on his subjects—and a savage witness to the insanity and horror of war. He is a Romantic painter, but his enormous and varied output has expressionistic and surrealist elements that mark him, for many, as the father of modern art. This course will examine Goya’s life and career as well as those of some of his major contemporaries. Instructor: John Lucas, MA, BFA Date:

If asked to name a famous witch, who pops to mind: Maleficent? Glinda? Samantha? Hermione? While the answer likely depends on your age, odds are good the name comes from popular culture. While the Harry Potter series may be the best-known current example, representations of witchcraft go back to the earliest days of European mass culture—to the first performance of Macbeth in the early 1600s, no less. But why have representations of witchcraft thrived over the centuries, while actual witches were being executed, persecuted, and literally demonized? How accurate are these cultural images, and how do they relate to the actual history of witchcraft? Lift the lid off the pop-culture cauldron and get an insider’s view with this survey course examining the often-contradictory portrayal of witchcraft over the past 400 years.

Music’s Top-Ten Classics

What does it mean to be top of the “Classical Music Charts”? Can a work of classical music be wildly popular with audiences and also be good? Must a superb piece of classical music require esoteric wisdom on the part of the listener to be enjoyed? In essence, what makes classical music tick, and why do audiences thrill to the strains? We will consider these questions through a selection of classical music’s most remarkable works: those that were popular in the day, fashionable at a time, or unjustly consigned to obscurity before being rediscovered as the gem it is. We will even seek to make the claim for which works should be on our Top-10 classical music charts. No prior experience in music is required. Instructor: Mary Byrne, PhD Dates:

The style of bel canto (beautiful singing) in opera introduced a technique stressing the lyrical and natural qualities of the voice.

Why Mahler?

Why does Gustav Mahler’s music affect us so deeply? What are we meant to listen to? Whose Mahler are we hearing? His music seems to “narrate” his inner consciousness, speaking to us as a man of warmth and sympathy who is trying to make sense of a threatening world. Mahler’s symphonies remain the most frequently performed compositions in the world, and yet they seem to defy classification. In an effort to understand the meaning and the message of Mahler’s music, we examine his symphonies as “narratives,” reflective of biographical events and of the socio-cultural ironies of fin de siècle Vienna. Importantly, we use easy to follow listening exercises that focus on elements of his musical form. In effect, we explore why Mahler’s symphonies—which stand apart from the monoliths in the classical repertoire— persist today as universally appealing. No previous musical knowledge necessary.

Richard Wagner: The Composer and the Ring Cycle NEW

Perhaps no one in the history of opera has equalled Richard Wagner in his vision and ability to combine the art of poetry, drama and music into one inclusive art form: the music drama. According to Wagner, a revolution in all aspects of the 19th century opera was needed to bring it to new creative heights. With this vision, Wagner created his Ring Cycle, which included four music dramas: Das Rheingold, Die Walküre, Siegfried, and Götterdämmerung. Wagner not only wrote the poetry and composed the music for these dramas but also commissioned the construction of special instruments as well as designing a special theatre for their continued performances. This course will take you on a journey of Wagner, the man and the composer, and a detailed examination of his music dramas of the Ring Cycle. Musical excerpts of these dramas will also be included in the course. No previous musical or opera experience is required.

Although entrenched in technology, photography shares much with classical art forms. Technique (and equipment) may indeed be the foundation of photographic expression, but any foundation is vulnerable without an understanding of the core disciplines, such as composition and tonal layering.

Documentary Photography: Creating the Personal Project

While the emphasis is on creativity, other topics covered include outputting options (silver halide, digital, alternative processes), articulating an artistic vision, gallery protocol, as discussions on photography’s status within the fine art community.

This course is about creativity, not equipment. You can use whatever equipment you own, digital or film. You will learn how to organize your own projects, budget time, edit a project and discover different ways to bring that project to a larger audience.

Students will be encouraged to prepare two single image assignments to be respectfully critiqued by your classmates and instructor. Some experience with photo editing software and/or darkroom skills is an asset for this course. Instructor: Gerry Schallié is an accomplished photographic artist with over twenty years of gallery exhibitions in Canada and the United States, represented regionally by Victoria’s Winchester Galleries.

Using Life Experience to Create Compelling Teen Fiction NEW

Flannery O’Connor once said that anybody who has survived childhood has enough material to write for the rest of his or her life. Memories of childhood and adolescent experiences can be powerful jumping off places for crafting young adult fiction—in fact, many novels have their beginnings in specific events in the author’s own life. In this workshop, you will use life-writing exercises as a strategy for accessing memories and creating raw material from which you can create convincing characters and compelling stories for teen readers. Instructor: Robin Stevenson is the author of twenty books for kids and teens. Her novels include The World Without Us (young adult fiction, 2015) and The Summer We Saved the Bees (middle grade fiction, 2015), as well as the Silver Birch Award winning Record Breaker, and the Governor General’s Award finalist, A Thousand Shades of Blue.

manda Evans is originally from Toronto but came out to Victoria in 2003 to attend the University of Victoria. In 2012, she graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Studies and Geography, and a Restoration of Natural Systems Diploma. During that time her love affair with Victoria developed into a deep commitment to causes that help save and restore the local natural environment. In 2014, she was given the job of creating the Greater Victoria Green Team (GVGT) modelled after the Lower Mainland Green Team. She has built the GVGT into the largest regional environmental volunteer group, and won both the Vancity Social Innovation Award and Volunteer Victoria Volunteer Engagement Award. In the past 12 months she has coordinated 67 volunteer activities and engaged 1,433 volunteers. The GVGT engages the community in hands-on environmental education and ecological restoration activities including removing invasive plants, planting native species and cleaning up shorelines. “It’s where I can truly practice what I am most passionate about: coming together and helping inspire and empower others to help protect and restore the earth,” she says. Evans credits the Continuing Studies diploma program with giving her the foundation for a career based in ecological restoration and community engagement. “I loved the experiential Photo: MJ Turner

The field trips to restoration sites were invaluable as we got to learn directly from different experts leading some amazing projects. It was great to make connections with some of these experts during the course, and some of these connections led to developing more long-term work relationships that benefit my current work situation.” It’s always refreshing and inspiring to meet a true idealist who has the energy and commitment to making a difference. Evans shows no sign of flagging in her energy to learn and do more.

“The thing I love about Victoria is the community involvement in making this city great. Without people taking action, creating community projects and contributing their time and passion, this city would be different,” she says. Evans points out that there is support at the municipal level for community projects. For instance, Lyda Salatian (who founded Green Teams of Canada) wanted to do more for her community and started the Lower Mainland Green Team on Meet-up.com in 2011. By 2013, this idea had led to the creation of a national charity that has become the largest environmental volunteer program in BC. “Thanks to Lyda, the GVGT was created and

ary Jo Hughes is the director of UVic’s Legacy Art Galleries, which consists of some 19,000 art objects. She has yet to personally handle all of them. The richness of UVic collections is constantly being accessed in creative ways to support the teaching and research that happens at the university. It also provides a lively and stimulating resource for the broader community. With 25 years of experience working in art museums—a term Hughes prefers over galleries— she has seen accelerating changes in the way collections are displayed and used, and in the expectations of the people interacting with them from a professional or public perspective. She sees our experience of the tangible artifacts being, more than ever before, a means of accessing the stories of the people behind them. Much of the distancing “preciousness” can be broken down in the crossover between gallery and museum with a non-static approach that really engages people. A case in point is the collection that was on display at UVic’s Legacy Gallery when I visited Hughes.

Many of the items were meant to be touched, handled, and even worn! It’s a little discomfiting at first, especially when dealing with objects drawn from aboriginal cultures. We have become more sensitized to the ritualistic and sacred meanings attached to such objects. Contemporary artists are opening our perspectives even further with new approaches. The works in the show (Emerging Through the Fog: Tsa-qwa-supp and Tlehpik – Together), created by two Nuu-chah-nulth men, “Fog-God” Art Thompson from Ditidaht (1948-2003) and Hjalmer Wenstob from Tla-o-qui-aht, includes interactive carvings. Hughes says that the heritage/museum sector now involves more cultural sensitivity, more partnerships rather than perspectives based on authority, as well as active facilitation of dialogue about society and culture. Hughes has redeveloped and will deliver an online course for Continuing Studies called Museum Principles and Practices. It’s part of the Continuing Studies Cultural Resource Management Program.

Mary Jo Hughes continued from pg. 39

I wish people would stop and notice things more—that we could all be more mindful of the world around us.

She finds it an exciting prospect to work with students who are early or mid-career professionals with different backgrounds. On the lighter side, apart from hiking and painting on Galiano Island, Hughes is taking woodworking classes and speaks fondly of the newly acquired table saw waiting for her to start using. She has also tried paddle boarding and is an avid cyclist. Victoria is great for that, she says, recalling her time as curator of historical art at the Art Gallery of Winnipeg where only four months

of cycling was possible each year. Here, she can cycle from the downtown gallery to meetings at the University of Victoria campus through all seasons. Hughes draws my attention to the tops of some trees across the street, just visible through her office window. “Look how beautiful the light is on them,” she says. “I wish people would stop and notice things more—that we could all be more mindful of the world around us.”

At the edge of the comfort zone with Instructor Jason Cressey by MJ Turner, Continuing Studies

J

ason Cressey, PhD (psychology), teaches leadership courses at the Justice Institute of BC when he is not teaching courses on topics like Emotional Intelligence for Continuing Studies. And, to make sure he is fully occupied, he is the director of “Motivation in Mind” corporate seminars and motivational training. He specializes in body language, interspecies communication, social skills, interpersonal relationships and cultural differences. Cressey has been teaching his popular courses through Continuing Studies since 2007. He says that what keeps him inspired is the constant variety of people who walk through the door at the start of the day. “This variety is most unlike my other lecturing work, where many in the classroom fit a particular profile or demographic and are ultimately there to gain a

44

qualification of some sort. It also differs from my corporate consulting work—where I usually know the type of team I’m working with and may even have an established professional relationship with the individuals there. With Continuing Studies, every course is different and full of surprises, as there could be a young university student sitting alongside an octogenarian, or someone from a manual trade sitting next to a person who works in a highly bureaucratic office environment. Everyone brings something very unique, and their reasons for attending provide a wonderfully diverse spectrum.” “The students I encounter in every course I teach are my greatest teachers. As all the courses I teach are about the skills of human interaction and maximizing positive experiences in life, I learn so much from the questions,

Life actually begins at the edge‌ If we only ever dwell within the heart of our comfort zone, we simply stagnate.

  45


Jason Cressey continued from pg. 45 concerns and experiences of those who walk through the door, so many of whom are willing to share a part of themselves— I love the fact there’s an informality and a real enthusiasm behind it from the people who attend.” Cressey says that he is always surprised by the insatiable quest to learn, especially amongst many students who are in their senior years. He aspires to become like them, approaching learning with curiosity and vigour. His own continuing education includes learning to speak more Turkish (a language he loves for its sound, structure and mental challenge—plus he loves visiting Turkey), and expanding his knowledge of vegetarian cooking drawn from other cultures. “I’m always curious about learning cooking techniques for new cuisines, and have been working for some years now on perfecting my Ethiopian dishes, which are so vegetarianfriendly. They also have a unique type of bread called injera that takes three days to prepare, and I swear is the most fickle thing in the world to get right in terms of both taste and texture—it’s a great teacher of patience, risk-taking and trial-and-error!” Travelling is, naturally, another passion, and Cressey recently returned from a major ramble through the five former-Soviet “stans” of Central Asia: Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan. “The ‘stans’ were wonderful in that they lived up to (and exceeded) everything that I expect from a great travel destination: they were diverse from each other, and very different to back home. They also did the most important thing any travel destination should do: they blasted away my stereotypes!” Tell us what you think of this article

Understanding and Coping with Social Anxiety

Body Language Level I: Unlocking the Secrets of Subtle Communication

Social anxiety, a fear and avoidance of social or performance situations because of possible scrutiny by others, is a commonly diagnosed anxiety disorder. Being able to understand and manage your social fears can be life changing. You’ll define social anxiety and identify its three components and possible causes. Strategies to cope with social anxiety, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, will be introduced. This course is for those with social anxiety, as well as their friends, family and caregivers.

Do we “leak” messages we would rather keep to ourselves? The fascinating field of nonverbal communication is about what our body language communicates to others. How can we create an impression of confidence or persuasiveness? How can we tell if someone is telling lies or trying to manipulate us? Learn about “reading” and “production” skills, facial expression, “paralanguage” (speed, pitch, tone, volume of voice), gestures and eye contact.

Boundaries 101: Where You End and I Begin The most important relationship you’ll ever have is the one with yourself. Healthy boundaries are essential, both to one’s sense of self and in having quality relationships with others. Yet for many, the concept of boundaries is foreign or confusing, and it can be difficult to know where to begin. Traditional approaches to learning about boundaries often focus on assertiveness training—come and learn about boundaries through the exploration of yourself and adult development. Learn how to “grow up”, differentiate and, in the process, develop and enforce healthy boundaries in your life. Ultimately, come prepared to learn more about yourself in this skill-building session.

Humanities and Social Sciences Exploring Aging through Film In this course you will participate alongside undergraduate students who are taking the course for credit. Your instructors come from the departments of Geography, Psychology and Sociology and you will learn about each of these disciplines’ perspectives on aging. The quality and nature of later life experience is changing, and so are attitudes towards aging. Older, healthier adults continue to contribute to society and engage in a variety of meaningful activities, and more and more of us are recognizing this new, emerging vision as our own. Through film screenings, readings and group discussions, we will explore these central questions: How is the journey through later life depicted in modern films? What are the implications of these depictions for modern society? How do these portrayals relate to the scientific data available on aging and development? Do these films reflect what we have learned and are learning about the aging process from those who have embarked on this later life journey? Do they ring true to our own experiences? We will watch four feature films: Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Savages, Still Mine and The Lady in the Van. This course is offered in partnership with UVic’s Institute on Aging & Lifelong Health.

European Borders without Walls: A Free Online Course Understanding borders in the 21st century is more difficult than ever before. Thanks to technological changes, borders are nearly everywhere. They are both physical (a line on the ground) and virtual (biometric), and all of us are now subjected to multiple boundary crossings. Borders are becoming more difficult to define and manage and, increasingly, policy makers must deal with the multiple and complex activities of governments and the actions of private and public organizations across international boundaries. Learn about the history of borders and boundary making. Explore what happens in cultural borderlands, and how current changes affect our understanding and the activities of governments as they face the many challenges related to borders and boundaries: flows of trade or migrants, pandemics and sustainability issues, and security.

Throughout its history, Southeast Asia has been one of the crossroads of civilization. Home to diverse cultures, religions, and peoples, it has seen the rise and fall of powerful empires, with vast temples and shrines, like Angkor Wat, Borobodur, and Pagan. The region also witnessed the rise of great maritime states, such as Sri Vijaya, Majapahit and Melaka, whose fleets plied the seas in pursuit of trade and commerce. Trade in spices drew Europeans, a trend which resulted in the carving up of the area into western colonial empires. These empires were dismantled after 1945, but decolonization

In this essay, A Custom of the Isle of Cea, he refers to many stories and texts from the ancient world, in which suicide was not greatly discouraged or legally forbidden. He entertains both sides of the debate, which still rages today, about whether people have the moral right to choose their own time and way of dying. In these two sessions,

NEW Understanding Conflict in the Middle East

In the aftermath of the Arab Spring tensions in the Middle East continue to escalate, displacing millions of people and creating the greatest refugee problem since the end of the Second World War. In this lecture we will focus on the origins of unrest in the region, examine how history has influenced current events, and try to understand the implications that these events are having both in the Middle East and around the world. While recognizing the negative impact of colonial and neo-colonial involvement over the past century, this presentation will suggest that what is happening in the region today is not so much a “clash of civilizations” as a “crisis of modernity”, and until we fully understand the nature of this crisis we will not be able to participate effectively in a solution.

Ultimately, medieval definitions of health illuminate the profound union perceived between the nature and the human nature.

amica at somerset house From the days when the Songhees, Esquimalt and other First Nations were the sole human inhabitants of Greater Victoria up to the present day, find out how our city has changed. Local historian John Adams has selected paintings, photographs and maps to illustrate themes related to archaeology, history, architecture,

Sessions: 1

Within recent memory Victoria was a major industrial city, boasting busy railways, docks and factories. Illustrations promoting the city featured smokestacks ringing the harbour, each sending a black plume into the sky. Today we might grumble about the noise and pollution they caused, but in the 1800s and early 1900s Victorians basked in the prosperity they hoped would result from such enterprises. Who were the captains of industry and what did they produce? Everything seemed to be manufactured here: lumber, shingles, textiles, rope, boots, carriages, iron products, coal gas, beer, wine, vinegar, paint, cigars and opium. What led to the growth of these firms and what caused their decline and disappearance? To answer these questions, historian John Adams has gathered pictures showing lost industries, the people who owned them and the workers who toiled for them. He will use them to illustrate this talk about a fascinating but often overlooked part of our history. Instructor: John Adams is an historian, author and heritage consultant well known for his historical walking tours around Victoria. Date:

Understanding Conflict in the Middle East NEW

amica at somerset house In the aftermath of the Arab Spring tensions in the Middle East continue to escalate, displacing millions of people and creating the greatest refugee problem since the end of the Second World War. In this lecture we will focus on the origins of unrest in the region, examine how history has influenced current events, and try to understand the implications that these events are having both in the Middle East and around the world. While recognizing the negative impact of colonial and neo-colonial involvement over the past century, this presentation will suggest that what is happening in the region today is not so much a ‘Clash of Civilizations’ as a ‘Crisis of Modernity’, and until we fully understand the nature of this crisis we will not be able to participate effectively in a solution. Instructor: Paul G. Chamberlain, PhD, is a historical geographer who grew up in Kuwait and has travelled extensively throughout the Middle East, researching, writing and lecturing about the region. His primary focus is history, comparative religion, and current events in the Arab world. Date:

Indigenous Arts: Women Artists of the Northwest Coast (1750 –2016) at berwick royal oak From Ravenstail and Chilkat robes, button blankets, to hats and baskets for every reason, Northwest Coast women have always created in a wealth of indigenous materials. While historically women did not carve poles or masks, this changed profoundly in the 20th century so that now an examination of First Nations women artists includes carvers, printmakers, engravers, jewellers, textile designers and more. In this course we will consider the art as first encountered by Spanish, British and American explorers and traders in the 18th century, and trace the innovation and change as the period of contact came to the Northwest Coast. A selection of important 20th and 21st century women artists, such as Ellen Neel, Freda Diesing and Susan Point will be studied. Each lecture will provide many examples of artwork from private as well as public collections. Instructor: Kerry Mason, MA Dates:

Of Carve-ups and Constitutions: A Century on from Sykes-Picot In the face of such volatility in the Middle East today, there has been increasing debate about redrawing the map of the Middle East and erasing the century-old, European-drawn borders. Indeed, ISIS proclaimed the “End of Sykes-Picot” when it spread from Syria to Iraq in 2014. Yet where exactly do the profound challenges to the status quo lie? In the delineation and imposition of colonial borders, or in how Arab leaders have since coped with their consequences? This talk will argue that the most significant challenge today is to build inclusive societies within those borders and in meeting the socioeconomic demands of the populations growing rapidly within them. Instructor: Martin Bunton, DPhil, is an Associate professor in the Department of History at UVic. he has published an aray of books and articles exploring topics such as modern Middle Eastern history,world history and colonial land politics.

The Complicated History of Modern Propaganda In August 1914, after declaring war on Russia, Germany launched an unprovoked attack on neutral Belgium, bringing an outraged Great Britain into the conflict. Reports of German brutality and the use of new weapons like poison gas provoked the British to develop a powerful new weapon of their own, propaganda. The Belgian Atrocities were the basis of a highly successful anti-German campaign that set a dangerous precedent with a contentious legacy. Post-war revelations that stories were fabricated caused controversy and concern over the apparent power of propaganda to manipulate a gullible public. Propaganda about the power of propaganda still prevails and informs current debates on the influence of publicity and media. Starting with the Belgian Atrocity Campaign, this talk will focus on the history of modern propaganda and explain why an understanding

Issues and Ideas in Canadian Environmentalism CS 201

CANADIAN STUDIES DIPLOMA PROGRAM Why study Canada? A country as vast, diverse and ever-changing as Canada offers near-limitless opportunities for study and reflection. Multicultural and multilingual, with a unique political, economic and social history, Canada defies easy definitions and continues to fuel debate about its identity as a nation. The Canadian Studies Program is designed for full- or part-time local and international students who wish to broaden their knowledge and understanding of Canada. In addition to three core courses in Canadian culture and issues, students may choose from a range of other courses related to Canada offered by the faculties of Humanities, Social Sciences and Fine Arts. Canadian Studies courses can be taken for credit (1.5 units) or for non-credit. Proficiency in English is required. A fee differential applies to international students.

This course offers an opportunity to explore how the physical environment of this country shapes the Canadian people. What are the connections between the environment and our sense of identity? How has the environment had an impact on our culture and how did received notions of wilderness affect our environment? How has Canada’s environment been interpreted and protected, despoiled and worshipped, and what can we learn from this story? Throughout the course we will explore the differences between European and non-Western approaches to environment and land use. We will examine theories as to how our environment has influenced Canada’s position in the global environmental movement. We will also look at environmental activism, and the meaning of sustainability and environmental justice, from a Canadian perspective. Note: This is an online course. If you are interested in taking this course for credit, please call Jennifer Sainz at 250-721-8458 for more information.

HUMANITIES DIPLOMA PROGRAM The humanities are academic disciplines that study human culture—history, classical traditions, literature, language and philosophy. We study the humanities to learn how to construct an argument, how to think critically: in short, to learn how to learn. The skills acquired in the humanities will benefit you in your personal and professional life, but are also valued by society. The Humanities Diploma Program (HDP) is an award-winning program designed to help mature students access a university education in the humanities. HDP students range in age from late-20s to mid-80s and have a wide range of backgrounds. They engage in full- or parttime study for career or personal development, and benefit from individual support from program and faculty coordinators and from the community they build with their peers. In return, they bring their extensive life experience, diverse cultural backgrounds and passion for learning to undergraduate courses at UVic. This life-changing diploma program, offered in partnership with the University of Victoria Faculty of Humanities, is available to students who have life experience and an interest in studying some area or areas of the humanities. There are no formal educational prerequisites. A diploma is awarded upon completion of 18 units of undergraduate offerings (12 courses).

Dawn has developed and teaches 10 levels of Mandarin courses for beginner, intermediate and advanced students.

Living in the language WITH INSTRUCTOR YE “DAWN” YUAN by MJ Turner, Continuing Studies

Y

e “Dawn” Yuan has been teaching courses at Continuing Studies since January 2011. She has a real passion for teaching and sharing her language and culture. She was born and raised in China, immigrating to Canada in her 30s. Dawn brings her love of music to the methods she uses in her classes. “I was a music and language teacher in China. Mandarin is a musical language. When we speak, it is like singing. The same syllable with a different tone (pitch) may have a very different meaning.” Two of Dawn’s most important influences are the music educators and composers Zoltan Kodály and Carl Orff. “I’ve been taking teacher training courses in the methods developed by them for use with young children. I find their philosophies fascinating.” Dawn brings what she learns to her language classes, noting with a smile that the challenge of maintaining the interest and attention of two- to six-year-old children sometimes stretches her as a teacher, but she finds it also helps her to bring energy to her adult classes. Dawn says she tries to learn new things every day. Cooking is another of her passions, although she prefers not to use recipes. “They limit my creativity,” she says. “My ingredients for teaching Mandarin are something English, something Chinese and something new.” Over the past few years she has also included Office IT and management courses, English, music education, and traditional Chinese dance classes in her personal learning efforts. She is also learning to sing in English, Italian, German, French and Latin. Photo: MJ Turner

The contest was sponsored by the Education Office of the Consulate General of the People’s Republic of China in Vancouver.

Dawn stays in touch with friends and relatives in China via social media and recently visited Hainan Island (sometimes referred to as the ”Eastern Hawaii”). While there, she journeyed from one end to the other on its famous, world’s-first islandlooping express railway bullet train. Moving at 200 km per hour seems to fit with a person who exudes great commitment to her work and such irrepressible energy, but in a heartbeat the perspective is redrawn as she recommends that everyone should visit Tibet if they have an opportunity.

You may have many reasons for wanting to speak French but no matter what your motivation, we believe that you’ll learn faster and retain what you learn if the experience is friendly, supportive and something you’ll look forward to each time. Whether you’re working towards a French Language Diploma and a credential that demonstrates a high level of ability, or simply have a love for language, a desire to engage with new friends, and want to immerse yourself in a different cultural experience, our programs welcome you at every level.

French Language Conversation Classes (FLCC) The emphasis of the French Conversation Classes is on learning to speak and understand French in a relaxed atmosphere among friends. You’ll meet and get to know people like yourself who want learning a language to be fun, stimulating and connected to the reality of your life and how you live it. The format allows you to self-select the appropriate course based on your abilities. The purpose of each course is to give you the opportunity to practice your oral French at a level that you are comfortable with (novice, conversant or advanced), and not to take you to the next level. The only exception is the prenovice level, which is an introductory class that you normally take once, and only if you are a complete beginner.

WORLD LANGUAGES Our portfolio of world language courses is constantly evolving to meet a growing demand for more languages and more levels. Below are the courses we are planning to offer in the fall term starting in September.

If you have previously taken an introduction to colloquial (informal) Arabic course or have completed Conversational Arabic for Beginners— Part 1 and would like to express yourself in a wider variety of everyday situations, this course will help you gain confidence in speaking. You will be encouraged to fine tune your pronunciation, reinforce your basic knowledge and develop your communication skills. Additional material will also be introduced to expand your vocabulary. Knowledge of the Arabic alphabet is required to register for this level.

Please note that we have three sessions of courses per academic year, thus, in many cases, you can take up to three successive levels between September and June.

Italian for Beginners—Part 2

For a native European language speaker, learning Hebrew is a double whammy: a non-IndoEuropean origin, and with a completely different script to boot. The script is the most intimidating aspect—but needlessly so, because in fact it shares a common heritage with the Roman alphabet, which can be exploited to master Hebrew writing in a few comparatively simple steps.

This near-beginner course is intended for those of you who have completed Italian for Beginners—Part 1 or who already have some basic skills. Videos and cultural discussions will enhance your learning and strengthen your basic knowledge in a fun and interactive atmosphere.

In this course, you will learn how the Hebrew and Roman scripts are related, and master writing in Hebrew cursive. In the final lessons, you will learn how to get from that to the traditional print version of the Hebrew alphabet. Along the way, you will also learn about history’s most unheralded geniuses, the best-kept secret in the history of western writing, and more.

Destination: Southern Spain When we think of European culture, few of us are likely to consider the Moors, a rich Muslim culture that populated Spain for nearly 700 years. Yet, this Moorish civilization enlightened Europe with its art, science, commerce and architecture. It brought the continent out of its dark ages, and ushered in a New Age—the Renaissance. Al-Andalus, in the southern region of Spain, is rich with the remains of this Moorish civilization—much of what we consider European culture can be traced back to the Moors in this region, with its huge libraries and intellectual centres, bastions and palaces, sacred and secular mystique. This fascinating visual tour takes us from Madrid through Al-Andalus, and includes the capital of Cordoba, the amazing architecture of Granada and Alhambra, the unrivalled Costa del Sol, and the beauty of Seville. Instructor: Chris Mundigler, ACA, BA, is a local archaeologist, ethno-historian and professional photographer.

Spain and Portugal Academic Resource: Rosa Stewart, MA, Department of Hispanic and Italian Studies, UVic Date: April 22 to May 13, 2017 The Iberian Peninsula has long enchanted all who have passed through. On this 22-day tour of Spain and Portugal we will have the opportunity to see firsthand the diverse geography of the peninsula. We will explore the beautiful architecture left by its various inhabitants – from Roman aqueducts and theatres to medieval castles and Moorish palaces. We will learn of the struggles and triumphs of the people of the peninsula as we discuss the history and politics of this glorious land. Our tour begins in the capital city, Madrid, and from there we travel north-west, visiting Segovia, Salamanca, and the pilgrimage destination and World Heritage city of Santiago de Compostela. We then venture south into Portugal, where we spend a total of six nights before re-entering Spain. While in Portugal we will enjoy port-tasting, a cruise on the Douro River and a performance of fado, a unique form of Portuguese singing. In southern Spain we will visit the amazing Moorish palace, La Alhambra, in Granada, the beautiful city of Sevilla that shows off her Moorish flavour in the graceful tower of the cathedral, the Giralda, once a minaret. We will also experience the sights and sounds of flamenco by attending a show called a “tablao”. We return to Madrid for our flight home.

Shaw and Stratford Theatre Festivals Academic Resource: Michael Booth, PhD, Professor Emeritus, Department of Theatre, University of Victoria Date: Sept. 18 to 28, 2017 The Stratford Festival, founded in 1952, began staging productions in 1953. Its primary mandate is to present productions of William Shakespeare’s plays, but it also produces a wide variety of theatre from Greek tragedy to contemporary works. It is one of the prominent arts festivals in Canada, attracting many of the finest actors from Canada, the United States and Great Britain. In 1962, Ontario lawyer and playwright Brian Doherty staged a “Salute to Shaw”, with its mandate to promote the works of George Bernard Shaw and his contemporaries. Since then the Shaw Festival has grown to become a major Canadian cultural symbol. The Shaw Festival is a contemporary theatre that features a diverse mix of plays from the past and present. This tour concentrates specifically on plays performed in the theatre, including four at the Shaw Festival in Niagara-on-the-Lake and four at the Stratford Festival. We fly direct from Victoria to Toronto and transfer by coach to Stratford, where we stay for five nights. We then continue by coach to Niagara-on-the-Lake for another five-night stay. There will be plenty of time on this leisurely tour for strolling and shopping in the charming little town of Niagara-on-the-Lake and for walks by the river in Stratford.

r. Emily Gonzales is an Ecological Restoration Specialist at Parks Canada where she coordinates conservation programs, develops policy and provides scientific advice for ecological restoration projects in national parks. She has also worked for Environment Canada as a Biodiversity Analyst and was the Director of Science AL!VE, a non-profit organization for science education. Here at UVic she teaches Restoration Ecology, Biodiversity and Conservation Biology, and Ecosystem Design through Propagation of Native Plants. Gonzales’ favourite part of teaching at UVic is learning from her Continuing Studies students. She says “the students bring their own experiences to the courses. Often, they share these perspectives with an enthusiasm that is infectious and this exponentially expands the learning opportunities as well as appreciation for the content.”

[The students] share perspectives with an enthusiasm that is infectious and this exponentially expands the learning opportunities. For Gonzales, some of the best moments in her teaching are the breakthroughs—that moment when a student is struggling with a difficult concept and then something clicks into place —particularly when it happens through dialogue with another student. The diversity of learning styles and levels of interest in various topics surprises her too.

Emily Gonzales continued from pg. 81 “The first time I taught Restoration Ecology, I was surprised how interested the students were in soils. Their enthusiasm for the topic raised my own interest and understanding.” When asked about important mentors in her own life and career, Gonzales picks her mother, Dr. Valerie Gonzales. “She taught statistics in the psychology department here at UVic, which might not be the easiest material for students to get excited about, but she made it relevant and engaging. And she always made time for her students. She has also finished more than 20 Ironman Triathlons. That’s a 4 km swim, 180 km cycle, and a 42 km run! She’s 70 years old and lives life with gusto.” Speaking about her own learning pursuits, Gonzales refers to the continuing education courses she took at Simon Fraser University in Dialogue and Civic Engagement. “I am interested in the ways government can engage the public on issues. I am trained as an ecologist and I used to think that when faced with an issue in conservation biology,

we simply needed to collect more data. Now I see that people and relationships are central in the solution to every conservation issue.” She quotes retired Parks Canada biologist, Michael Gibeau: “Science, while necessary, is not sufficient to solve problems in the real world.” “I’ve applied the skills learned in that program to workshops in Parks Canada as well as to online discussions in my courses. I’m particularly interested in how dialogue can enhance education and our understanding of the world.” Gonzales’ other interests include teaching yoga and pushing her own limits through challenges such as bungee jumping – despite being afraid of heights. “I guess I seek out that which is a bit uncomfortable, to see what I can learn from that fear, “ she adds with a smile.” Tell us what you think of this article

Protecting shorelines in the face of climate change and sea level rise has largely focused on building seawalls and dikes. While these structures provide protection in the short term, they’re expensive and often contribute to erosion and habitat loss at other locations along the shoreline. As an alternative to hard armouring solutions like seawalls, the Green Shores program provides practical strategies for shoreline design and management and the promotion of healthy shoreline environments. Open to homeowners and shoreline professionals, these one- and twoday workshops provide information about the Green Shores program, including its rationale, benefits, and application. Topics covered include shoreline ecology and governance, Green Shores credits and ratings systems, and a visit to local shorelines that allows participants to consider the concepts in a practical setting. Visit greenshores.ca or email ecorestoration@ uvic.ca for information about upcoming workshops in Fall 2016.

Managing rainwater as a resource is a change in paradigm from considering runoff as excess or waste, and site-specific operations that are environmentally and ecologically sound are necessary.

SUSTAINABILITY

An awareness of the disruptions to natural water cycles and caused by urban development, is essential for the effective management of water resources. Refurbishing nature’s water processes is a big job, requiring changes in our thinking and in the decades-old cultural modus operandi associated with water systems. This course introduces the basic premises of rainwater harvesting and the “new” lifestyles and thought processes it encourages us to adopt. Instructor: Ken Nentwig is a retired landscape architect and an educator, working in rainwater harvesting and landscape planning/design. As an authorized Trainer for the American Rainwater Catchment Systems Association (ARCSA), he is deeply involved in their accreditation programs. In addition, he consults with developers, builders, landscapers and rainwater practitioners in best practices for rainwater system installations. This course consists of four stand-alone sessions: you can register for a single session or receive a discounted rate if you register for the entire series. Dates:

Experiential LEAR by Miranda Angus, Program Coordinator Intercultural Education

xperiential learning, in the most basic terms, means learning by doing and applying knowledge in a real-world context. Many professional programs at Continuing Studies offer a practicum or final project option toward the end of a student’s program, producing a rewarding final experience fusing course knowledge with hands-on work. This is often the pinnacle of the educational journey. Under the direct mentorship of an experienced professional, students receive

What is “experiential learning” and why has it become such an important part of a student’s learning experience?

RNING Over the past few years, Intercultural Education practicums have been completed by students from local multicultural organizations, across Canada, and as far away as Guatemala, Kenya and Switzerland. Whether it’s developing training materials for working with immigrants and refugees who have experienced violence; developing and facilitating workshops to help newcomers to Canada to locate job search resources, identify skills, network and build an effective resume; connecting communities together by educating

and campaigning on issues around migration; or mentoring and supporting youth through creating recreational, public-speaking and tutoring programs, practicum projects build upon the existing student skills, contribute to developing new ones, and help to serve the community in a tangible way. During a practicum, students will be continuously challenged to think about placing their classroom learning in a real-world context. Sometimes assumptions

are challenged, and sometimes their experiences reinforce what they have learned. Regardless, all students walk away with an enriching experience, clearer educational or vocational direction, and an expanded professional network. The knowledge and skills gained through experiential learning continues to serve students into the future as many go onto bigger projects in the community and beyond.

Sign up for the UVic Emergency Alerts at uvic.ca/alerts to get an emergency text message. 2. Use texting, not calls, to let your family know you’re safe. 3. At the time of an emergency, check the UVic website at uvic.ca for information. 4. Medical emergency? Call 911 and Campus Security Services at 250-721-7599. Give your location. 5. Fire? Pull the fire alarm and get out of the building—follow the instructions of the emergency coordinators wearing orange vests. 6. Earthquake? Drop, Cover and Hold On. Do not leave the building until the shaking stops. Go to the playing fields behind CARSA and stay away from the buildings. 7. Threat of violence? Protect yourself by getting out, hiding or as a last resort—take action. 8. If you evacuate a building take your wallet, keys and mobile phone with you. 9. Use the UVic Mobile app for details on emergency response procedures. 10.
