Open door week at VIU Jan. 25 to 29

January 25, 2010 - 2:30am

It’s Open Door Week at Vancouver Island University.

Dozens of classrooms will be open to the public, including high school students and other prospective students until Friday.

“Faculty at the Cowichan and Nanaimo campuses have volunteered to open their classrooms to visitors. This is a wonderful opportunity to find out about the many programs and courses available at Vancouver Island University, and the exciting teaching and learning experiences taking place here,” said Sarah de Jager of the Teaching and Learning Centre.

VIU offers more than 200 degree, diploma, certificate and masters degree programs. Specific classes during Open Door Week cover a wide variety of topics including medieval and renaissance thought, First Nations studies, child and youth care, media studies, economics, biology and chemistry, earth science, commercial law, archaeology, journalism, and much more.

Open Door Week coincides with exam week in Nanaimo Ladysmith School District giving high school students plenty of free time to check out their local university.

All regular classes will remain in session during Open Door Week. Classrooms will be open to the public at the discretion of individual faculty members.

Open Door Week is a joint initiative of the Professional and Scholarly Development Committee of the VIU Faculty Association and the Teaching and Learning Centre.
