October Showcase in SPACE!


Saturday, October 28th on Zoom

Signum’s Portals for Adult Continuing Ed have been blasting off for two years! To celebrate our one-month-no-credit modules of learning and fun, the SPACE folks present a Showcase of half-hour learning capsules in an unrecorded, FREE event open to everyone on the internet.

Our Capsule sessions are 30-minute samples of upcoming module topics across our four main sectors of learning: (1) Creative Writing; (2) Fantasy Studies; (3) Language; (4) General Humanities. Our full-sized modules run for eight hours over the course of one month, and these capsules give you a great idea of what the modules are like. They will run from 10:00 AM through about 4:45 PM Eastern time on Zoom, and you are more than welcome to drop in and drop out as your schedule and interests dictate.

Register here for the Showcase!

In fact, sign up by October 22 to be entered in a drawing to receive a free token good for any one full-month SPACE module in any month without expiration.

Our showcase will begin with a short welcome at 9:50 AM from your hosts Rob Gosselin, Director of SPACE, and Pilar Barrera, our SPACE Faculty Liaison (all times are in Eastern Daylight Saving time).

Jenny can help you with navigating Blackberry, our records management system where you can browse all of the modules, click “add to wishlist” for those which catch your fancy, and learn all about SPACE.

Jen Gosselin's eyes sparkle with absolute joy. She's got a windbreaker on in a vibrant green, her short-cropped hair is a deep chestnut color, and her smile is broader than all of Canada. One is even moved to bet that she's got a flock of fabulous children, known as the Goslings, who keep her moving, happy, and focused. Seriously, when I look at Jen's photo, I feel a wave of energy and kindness.
