development. Professional presence has absolutely
nothing to do with how many degrees you have
or your job title but a pride in yourself and your
work. It is wanting to do things right, regardless of
the job function you perform; the ability to feel and
project a sense of poise, self-assurance, sense
of competence and credibility at work and looking
confident. It is the ability to determine what you can
and cannot control in the workplace. This course
is based on the book Workplace Savvy and is
delivered by the author. It covers topics such as
personal and professional values, professional
branding, political savvy and image.

Creative Storyboarding
Stories make up the world around us. Storytellers
are the most ancient literacy messengers in
history. Stories help young children to organize
their feelings and lives, and to make connections
with their experiences. This class will help
teachers make language come alive through
materials such as puppets, flannel board pieces,
and tactile picture symbols. Take storytelling
to a new dimension and help children express
themselves through language and exposure to
classic literature. Sometimes, a picture is worth a

The Golden Age of Art in the Dutch
Republic NEW
Careers
For most of the 17th century the Dutch Republic’s
trade domination and capitalism development
created a very prosperous society and flourishing
of the arts. Calvinism’s rejection of religious art
in the churches steered artistic subject matter
towards portraits, landscapes, still-lifes, and
scenes of everyday life. The course focuses on
how artists such as: Rembrandt, Frans Hals,
Jacob van Ruisdael, Pieter Claesz, Vermeer, and
others, addressed Calvinism.TWA

as more modern traditional peoples of Africa, Asia

An Elegant Sufficiency: Musical
Masterpieces from Schubert’s Last
Year
Benjamin Britten called Schubert’s last year “the
most miraculous year in music history.” In his
great late works, Schubert reached more often
and more extensively for emotion-heightening
effects of wildly juxtaposed harmonies and key
changes, ever pushing the boundaries. This
course will explore the harmony and musical
textures of Schubert’s late piano sonatas,
chamber works, the Mass No. 6, and his
beguiling song cycle Winterreise. Comparisons
to contemporaries and Schubert’s mileu will
provide context to the examination of Schubert’s
masterpieces from 1827-1828. TWA

Earned Value Management
Earned Value (EV) is a management tool for
tracking and communicating a project’s status.
Earned Value Management (EVM) will let you
know the actual state of the project by comparing
your current project performance against your
plan. Knowing the project’s performance will let
you take actions needed to ensure that the project
is completed on time and within budget. Like
any tool, in order for EVM to be successful, it is
very important that it is used correctly. Earned
Value is one of the most sophisticated and
accurate methods for measuring and controlling
project schedules and budgets. EV has been
used extensively in large projects, especially in
government projects. PMI® is a strong supporter
of the EV approach because of its ability to
accurately monitor the schedule and cost
variances for complex projects. Learn more about
this powerful, highly respected technique, how to
use it effectively, and how to create the desired
reports for senior management and customers.

Efficient Project Management with
Mind Mapping
Mind mapping is an effective project management
tool to save time and improve communication with
the team and other stakeholders in an effective
and creative way. A mind map is a graphical
diagram consisting of nodes, branches, colors,
and icons used to convey ideas efficiently. They
are simple to create and understand, and are
often used to focus brainstorming sessions
and work breakdown structure creation. Learn
how to create and apply mind maps in project
management and get links to a variety of free
templates that you can use immediately to get
started with mind maps. This powerful project
management technique can be used for strategic
planning, requirements, work breakdown
structure, risk identification, accelerated learning,
and project planning. If you are interested in
using mind mapping as an alternative to (or
enhancement of) project management software,
this course is a good place to start. (4 PDUs)

Risk Management
Imagine preventing 90 percent of your project
problems. How much could you improve project
quality, cost, and schedule? Risk management is
a project management methodology that includes
risk planning, identification, qualification, risk
response development, and control. Business and
project managers need to understand what risks
they face and adopt strategies for incorporating
those opportunities into effective project
management. This course includes techniques
from international risk research and worldwide
contributors, templates you can adapt and use in
your projects, hundreds of risks and risk categories
to help you identify risks, and a methodology to
prevent many project problems. Project managers,
project team members, technical staff, and
managers can benefit from the risk management
techniques and templates in this course. Since the
course also covers the basics of risk management,
it is also useful for those preparing for the PMI®
certification exams. (15 PDUs). This course is

GENERAL INFORMATION
WD&CE Winter / Spring 2016 Noncredit Courses
◘Co-listeD Classes
Classes marked with this symbol ◘ are
co-listed. They are offered so that students
may register either for credit or continuing
education (noncredit) status. Co-listing gives
students an option to choose the best path for
their educational needs. Each section includes
both credit and noncredit students. For students
seeking credit classes, please consult the
credit course schedule. The expectations for
attendance, participation, and effort are the same
for all students. Instructors will announce policies
concerning class activities.
If you have registered as a noncredit student in
a co-listed course and you wish to change from
noncredit to credit status, you will have one day
after the class has begun to do so. After that, you
are committed to your path as a noncredit student
for the remainder of the course. If the course
has a required assessment level to be a credit
student, you must first complete the assessment
testing and meet the appropriate assessment
level before you can change to credit status.
Dates for co-listed classes may reflect the actual
credit term dates. Please check the day on your
calendar for the actual start date of your class.
