I’m curious, is anything being done or in the works to reach the vast continuing education population? I myself have taken many one-off courses at community or CE campuses in the States and now in Hong Kong for no other reason than enjoyment of learning new things. And my grandmother returned back to school at age 68 to get her BA.

Could CFI develop a CE curriculum of classes on say: comparative religion, philosophy, general science, critical thinking, and many many more?

Could a group like CFI also begin outreach to community centres and the like?

Well, the CFI does do some form of continuing education, for example, The Skeptic’s Toolbox , and the CFI Institute’s summer sessions.

Check out CFI’s Education page for more info.

(NB: I haven’t been to any of these, but they sound potentially valuable).

Yes. And you should also check out our new Masters Degree (which includes distance learning components) at http://www.scienceandthepublic.org

CFI has been offering a robust program in continuing education for about 15 years.

Cheers,
Thomas

Depends what you mean. I am not an expert on the history of the CFI, but there is some info here .

Regarding the continuing education information posted above and on the site- I’m very much interested in getting additional information on CSII, hearing the experience of participants, etc. It seems like a terrific program. I’m primarily interested in the CAS program offered. Per the catalogue, it looked as if they were pushing for Masters status for 2008. Did that ever go through? I also sent an email to the individual listed in the catalogue pdf. but I’m unsure if it went to the correct person. Any thoughts?
