New 0.25 credit course for Spring 2017: CIS 115 “Experiential Design and Application”

This course, co-taught with Director of Physical Plant Operations Mike Conte, will allow students to work directly with Facilities employees to design and execute modifications and repairs to existing Wesleyan spaces. The specific projects will change from semester to semester, but could include designing and building informal learning spaces, and planning and carrying out repairs and modifications to mechanical and plumbing systems. Students will learn design and engineering by carrying out projects to improve Wesleyan’s facilities. Students must be willing to work with tools and machinery with supervision. The grading in this quarter-credit repeatable course will be based primarily on active participation, and the class meetings will be held on location and at times built around participants’ schedules. The first organizational meeting will be held in the Cady building at 170 Long Lane on Friday, January 27 at 2:50 pm; interested students who cannot attend the first meeting should e-mail the instructors. ┬áMore information available in the WesMaps listing.
