Continuing Education Classes Get Creative

CE Class at the Bowl

BSC Continuing Education found clever solutions for providing learning opportunities this summer, while abiding by the CDC guidelines for safe social interaction.

Several classes took place in the great outdoors, including Being Strong Counts at the BSC Community Bowl and Yoga on the Lawn (pictured) at the State Capitol Grounds.

Another approach was using online platforms. Through ed2go, BSC was able to offer 10 self-paced online classes free of charge. This shift will continue in the fall with Mediterranean Cooking, Write Your Novel (At Home) and Introduction to Watercolor Painting moving from being in-person to online.

Even with the challenges presented, five new courses were introduced for kids. BSC added art camps to its science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education, enhancing it to a STEAM program. And Sanford Health partnered with BSC to create a med-adventure camp.

BSC continuing education offers courses for kindergarten graduates through adults who are lifelong learners. All classes are now designed with safety in mind by limiting enrollment numbers, requiring masks and cleaning classrooms between sessions.
