Ringling College Lifelong Learning Academy has announced its Winter Semester, including classes such as “Supreme Court: 2017 Cases,” “Symphonic Life,” “iPad for Beginners,” “Aromatherapy,” “20th Century Elections,” and “Quantum Mechanics.” And this is only a sampling of the more than 100 in-depth courses offered. Classes, lectures, Academy Talks, Einstein’s Circle series and special events are held at the Academy’s interim headquarters at Temple Beth Sholom. Classes are also offered at State College of Florida in Lakewood Ranch, The Center of Anna Maria Island, Westminster Towers and Shores in Bradenton, and, new this semester, a lecture series at the Paradise Center on Longboat Key. Weekly classes run two to eight weeks. No refunds on lectures, workshops, or special events; registration is transferrable. The winter semester includes a special series: “Futurist in Residence Workshop Series: 21st Century Thought and Trends with David Houle.” Houle is the “Futurist in Residence” and guest lecturer at Ringling College of Art and Design and known as “the CEO’s Futurist.” The series is designed for people active in business who are interested in trends, roadmaps, and envisioning what future belief systems will be. The winter semester also features the Boomer Conference 2018: Creating Your Next Chapter with Joy and Purpose, focusing on the social and psychological aspects of retirement and features speakers, roundtables, networking sessions and more. A Lunch and Lecture series will also bring special guests throughout the semester, and a documentary series will explore many prominent issues of the day.
