Feb. 10, 2021 — - Northern Kentucky University continues its commitment to breaking down barriers to higher education by offering free classes for two days. NKU virtually opens up its campus for the community to take an inside look at a variety of subjects with its third annual Making Teaching Public celebration from Feb. 17-18.
Making Teaching Public is designed to be convenient for the community to explore NKU through interesting classes at various times. Thirteen courses will be available for anyone to attend. This year's topics range from teaching elementary students reading skills and professional makeup designs to developing an entrepreneurial mindset.
“This celebration is a wonderful opportunity to open our classrooms and share the faculty’s expertise with the community,” said NKU President Ashish Vaidya. “Learning in the classroom – whether in-person, virtual or hybrid – is at the heart of the college experience and making it ‘public’ allows learners from all walks of life to get a glimpse into NKU’s core mission. It allows our alumni an occasion to engage with their alma mater and offers community members the chance to learn something new.”
