Registration for Creative Retirement Institute (CRI) classes for winter term at Edmonds Community College starts on Monday, Nov. 25, at 6 a.m.
The Creative Retirement Institute (CRI) is an organization affiliated with Edmonds Community College that provides non-credit, academic level classes to life-long learners. Classes are offered weekday mornings and afternoons in two-hour sessions that run from one to four weeks.
Topics for classes cover a myriad of subjects. Titles for a few of the courses coming up winter term are Hooks, Riffs, and Earworms: How Your Favorite Music Grabs You; Conspiracy Theories: Fiction, Logic, and Good Business; Making Sense of Bitcoin and Other Cryptocurrencies; and Four Novels by American Novel Laureates.
The instructors come from various backgrounds – college professors, the corporate executives and individuals passionate and knowledgeable about a topic. Many of our instructors winter term have taught with CRI for years and some are new to the CRI world.
