CONTINUING EDUCATION COMMITTEE
Mission Statement:
The Continuing Education Committee helps to facilitate the Prince George’s Community
College (PGCC) program. It offers an educational program of classes called SAGE (Seasoned
Adults Growing Educationally) for Riderwood residents that is intellectually and personally
enriching and varied in content and levels of presentation. This program is designed to be
attentive to student interests and flexible in instructional methods—e.g., lecture, participatory,
and/or audiovisual. It provides a balanced array of classes that include academic offerings as
well as those focused on studio arts, exercise, dance, and other activities taught by instructional
staff that is highly motivated and competent in delivering classroom experiences to adult
learners.

Trimester Information and Dates
   Classes begin on February 11, 2019, and run through May 24, 2019.

   “No class” dates (unless informed otherwise by your instructor) for the
    Spring trimester are:
          o President’s Day: 2/18
          o Spring Break: 3/18 - 3/23
          o Memorial Day Weekend: 5/25

   Always check with your instructor about “no class” days and any make-up days
    your instructor has scheduled.

   When instructors cancel classes or Prince George’s Community College is
    closed, a notice will be posted on community bulletin boards, MyErickson,
    and Riderwood TV. Please check for these postings every day because
    cancelations can come at the last moment.

   If Prince George’s County Public Schools are closed due to inclement weather,
    PGCC classes at Riderwood are also canceled unless the instructor wishes to
    teach. If Prince George’s County Public Schools are starting two hours late,
    PGCC classes beginning before noon are also canceled. If schools close early,
    classes after 2:00 pm are cancelled. When possible, a notice will be posted on
    community bulletin boards, MyErickson, and Riderwood TV.




                                         6
Username and Password
    Get a Username and Password from PGCC
   In order to register online, or have someone else register you online at our
    Registration Help Sessions, you must have three key pieces of information:
          o your PGCC student I.D. number – this number will be the same from
              trimester to trimester
          o a username – this will be the same from trimester to trimester
          o a password – this will be the same from trimester to trimester but it is
              best to check it before each registration period
    NOTE: The earlier you get these before registration opens each trimester,
       the better!

   Step 1 for Current Students, or those who have taken a class previously: to get
    your PGCC student I.D. number, you can look on a previous trimester’s
    registration statement (also known as your payment receipt or schedule of
    classes); your student I.D. number is just below your name on the top left.

   Step 1 for New Students: If you don’t have your student I.D. number, call the
    PGCC Workforce Development & Continuing Education (WDCE) Customer
    Service Desk at 301-546-0159 and ask for your student I.D. number. They will
    ask for your full name, address, phone number, date of birth, etc., and
    immediately give you your computer-generated student I.D. number.

   Step 2 for all New Students: After you have your student I.D., call the Prince
    George's Community College Help Desk at 301-546-0637. Explain that you
    need to get a username and temporary password for Owl Link. They will ask for
    your student I.D. number, which you just got in step one. They will then issue
    you your username and a temporary password—which must be written exactly
    as it is given to you. SAVE this information and use it to register online or bring
    it to the Registration Help Sessions (see page 8).




                                           7
Test Your Username and Password from PGCC
   All students should test their username and password.
   To test your username and password yourself:
    1. Go to www.pgcc.edu and then click on “Owl Link” at the top of the page.
    2. At the top of the Owl Link PGCC page, click on “Log In” tab at the top right
       side of the page.
    3. Fill in your username and password.
    4. Click Submit.
    5. You should get a page allowing you to click on the links to register
       beginning on January 30. In the upper left hand corner, it should say
       Welcome (your name). Online registration does not open until
       January 30.

   If you are not able to test your username and password, or if you need
    assistance please come to the help session on Monday, January 28 from
    10am-12pm in the VSQ Computer Lab.
   NOTE: If you do NOT get your username and password checked, your
    registration may be slowed down because you will only be able to register with
    the PGCC staff representative




                                         8
Get Registered
   Registration period begins on Wednesday, January 30.
   You must have a student I.D., username, and password to get registered!
   The registration fee is $85. You are permitted to register for up to 10 non-
    conflicting classes.

Do It Yourself
   Go to www.pgcc.edu and click “Owl Link.”
   Log in and register for classes.
   Should you need step-by-step instructions for Online Registration, go to
    http://www.riderwoodlife.org/clubs-and-organizations/continuing-education-
    committee and click on the link for the video demo.
   You may also pick up a set of written instructions at your Front Desk; ask for
    the document titled “ONLINE REGISTRATION INSTRUCTIONS.”

Come to a Registration Help Session
   Registration help sessions will be offered by Riderwood volunteers and PGCC
    staff to those who need assistance with registration on ONE DAY ONLY—
    Wednesday January 30.
   Registration help sessions will be held in Village Square and Lakeside
    Commons Computer Labs from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm and 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm.
   Please come to these help sessions with (1) a credit card and check, (2) a list of
    classes that you would like to take, and (3) your PGCC username and password,
    which must be obtained ahead of time.
   You will learn right away what classes you have gotten into, and you will walk
    away with a schedule of your classes in hand. Pease note: On this schedule,
    only the PGCC course titles are listed. These titles may differ from the
    Riderwood course title. Both are listed in the catalog. To be sure you are in
    the correct class, please check that the day, time, location, and instructor
    on your schedule match what is listed in the catalog. The location of the
    class is also NOT listed on the schedule so please keep your catalog.
    Otherwise you may find class locations on My Erickson.

                                           9
Drop off Registration instead of Mailing in Paperwork
   Drop off completed registration forms and checks (payable to PGCC) to
    Community Resources Coordinator Amy Hahn in Village Square between
    January 22 and January 29. Dropped off paperwork will not be accepted after
    January 29.
   The benefit of dropping registrations off to us rather than mailing them in to the
    college is that they will be processed on-site at Riderwood on January 30 by
    PGCC staff, and your class schedule will be printed and put in your cubby.
    Dropped off registrations will be processed and signed up for classes after
    those who register themselves and after those residents who stand in line at
    the Help Sessions are assisted.


Mail in Registration
   Any resident wishing to register by mail must complete the registration form
    and mail it, with an $85 check payable to PGCC. Mail to: PGCC SAGE Office,
    Lanham Hall, Room 224, 301 Largo Road, Largo, MD 20774
   Mailed in registrations are processed after everyone who comes to the help
    sessions is assisted and after the dropped-off registrations are processed.

Important Information, Dates, and Facts
Important Information for All Students
1.  You must have paid the $85 registration fee in order to take any course.
2. If you did not get into the class(es) of your first choice, be sure to register for a
    class in the Encore Theater. (These classes will be neither under-subscribed nor
    filled to capacity; thus you will ensure that you are registered.)
3. Register for no more than one section of a particular course.
4. You may register for up to 10 non-conflicting courses. (i.e., no overlap of
    times). Please register only for courses you know you will be attending.
5. Use the “Courses at a Glance” pages to plan your schedule and locate your
    classes.
6. Titles of classes on your PGCC printed schedule may not match the Riderwood
    course titles. Both are listed in this Course Catalog. Please compare day, time,
    and instructor name to ensure you are registered for the class you want.
7. There are no waiting lists for classes. When you register online, you receive a
    class confirmation.
8. The official number for seating in any room will be strictly observed. No extra
    chairs can be allowed.
9. If a class was full at the time that you registered and you could not get into it,
    you can be considered a standby. Go to the class and wait outside the door
    before that class starts. If enrolled students do not show up for the class,
    instructors are allowed to let in students who are waiting outside, on a first
    come, first served basis, based on the number of available seats.
10. PGCC is required to have a minimum of 15 students per class in order to fund
    the class.
11. Some classes start on later dates in the trimester and some do not meet on
    certain days and weeks. Please review start and end dates and no class dates
    listed for each class. Please put these start dates and no class dates on your
    calendar.
12. Important Safety Issue and Requirement: Please park scooters and wheelchairs
    in rooms only, not in the hallway.



                                          11
Directives for Safety & Civility in PGCC Classes
1. Only Residents who register and pay the Registration Fee for that term may attend a
      PGCC class.
2.    There are two types of Registrants: Enrollees who have signed up for a specific class
      and Standbys who have not signed up for a specific class but have paid the trimester
      registration fee and may wish to attend classes. In some classes with sequential
      content like computers or foreign languages, a teacher may choose to exclude
      standbys.
3.    Enrollees in a class have priority in seating for that class only if they arrive before the
      class start time. This helps minimize disruptions to the class due to latecomers. At
      start time, Teachers or Monitors will consult the attendance roster and determine the
      number of unoccupied seats for Standbys to fill.
4.    Standby Residents must line up at the door outside the class. At class start time at a
      signal from the Teacher or Monitor, the Standbys can be seated, first come, first
      served. Once Standbys are seated, no Enrollees can bump them out of their seats.
5.    All residents should be prompt, especially those requiring special seating. This
      courtesy helps keep the class uninterrupted for all. At the start of class time, a teacher
      may post a Do Not Disturb sign on the door. Then no additional students may enter.
6.    If the set-up staff is still prepping the classroom, all Residents should wait outside.
7.    Safety Guidelines must be observed. No one may stand or sit on tables, floor,
      windowsills etc. Walkers, wheelchairs or scooters may not block aisles or be left in
      the hallways. As appropriate, designated open areas in each lecture style classroom
      will be reserved for Residents in walkers, wheel chairs/scooters. Please comply with
      requests from Teachers and Class Monitors.
8.    A maximum class size or head count is limited by teachers’ preferences for content,
      classroom dimensions, and Safety Guidelines. Staff set up each room to meet these
      limits. No extra chairs may be added. The total student head count in the room must
      not exceed the class limits set in the catalog.
9.    Aides who escort residents to class may remain to assist Residents in classes as long
      as there is space for extra people in the room head count after enrollees and standbys
      are seated and the teacher agrees.
10.    If guests occasionally wish to accompany a resident to class, as a courtesy they
      should be introduced to the teacher. If the teacher agrees and if there is room in the
      class head count after enrollees and standbys are seated, then these guests may
      remain.
11.   Cell phones should be OFF or turned to Vibrate Only during class.

Riderwood Course Title: Berlin on the Silver Screen: Representations of History
and Culture in Film
PGCC Course Title: History Through Hollywood
NEW Berlin, the capital city of Germany, has been at the center of a changing Europe
over the course of the past century. After being left in ruins following World War II, it
became physically and culturally divided by the Berlin Wall from 1961 to 1989. It has
remained an ever-evolving cultural and architectural landscape since the fall of the wall
and subsequent reunification of East and West Germany. This course will explore Berlin’s
turbulent recent history and the character of the city’s sites and people through its
representation in films set in Berlin. While primarily focused on film, this course will also
examine significant historical trends in other forms of art and literature produced in
Berlin. Film screenings will include Berlin: Symphony of a Great City (1929), Wings of
Desire (1987), Run Lola Run (1998), Goodbye, Lenin! (2003), The Lives of Others (2006), A
Coffee in Berlin (2012), Victoria (2015), and others TBD. Please note that most films will
have German audio with English subtitles.

Nanna (550 BCE), Sir Hans Sloane (1660–1753), and Andrew W. Mellon (1855–1937),
and what they all have in common? They were all founders of museums; come and
explore, through pictures and words, places which have involved, entertained,
questioned, introduced new concepts, shared and preserved the past, and may point the
way to the future. Museums may show us the beautiful, the historic, the questionable, the
ethical (or not), the scientific, the ugly, the funny, the weird, and ourselves. Do you know
how to visit a museum? How to read an artifact? An exhibit? Do you know how exhibits
are planned, created, installed? Can you critique one? Come, make discoveries, and enjoy
the adventure.

Riderwood Course Title: Fairy Tales - Not Only for Kids
PGCC Course Title: Literature
NEW We all enjoyed reading fairy tales as children, or having them read to us. We
didn’t realize then that there’s much more to a fairy tale than princesses, fairy
godmothers, dwarfs, wizards, castles, and gingerbread cottages. In this course, we’ll
explore fairy tales from every angle: how they began and how they spread, their use as
tools in childhood education, and as lessons in history and culture, for their archetypal
gender roles, and, most important, as tools in psycho-therapy, giving us insights into our
own psychosocial development, and that of others. We’ll also look at modern
“subversions” of fairy tales, and their adaptive uses in films, stage plays, and other media.
Maybe we’ll be stimulated, as the course proceeds, to write our own fairy tales!
