CI Class on Chinese Civilization for Senior Citizens Successfully Completed
November 29, 2011

We completed a six-week class (Introduction to Chinese Civilizations) in October and November for 31 senior citizens from Tampa Bay area. The class was co-taught by Kun Shi and Mingzhao Hu. It was not easy to cover the 5,000-year Chinese civilization in twelve hours, but we managed to complete it with numerous video clips and photos, as well as lively discussions. It is one of the most successful CI outreach efforts during the year.

The class was a partnership with the USF Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI). The class feedback is so positive that the CI is invited to teach another Chinese culture class for OLLI members next semester.
