Thursday Night Live with CCC

May 7 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Ales and Ideas presents Thursday Night Live with CCC

Since we can’t gather at Fort George for a Clatsop Community College Thursday night Ales and Ideas presentation, order your dinner online for pick-up from Fort George and join CCC from your home as we gather through Zoom to present a free virtual lecture series to the community. Our first Thursday Night Live with CCC will be May 7, 2020 at 7:00 p.m. Join Nancy Cook, CCC Writing & Literature Instructor, and Deac Guidi, Speech Communications Instructor for an interactive online Zoom session devoted to COVID-19’s impacts on both oral and written communication, in classrooms, homes and communities around the world.  Participants will enjoy a live multimedia slide presentation, experience a Break Out Room discussion, ask live questions, and chat with one another. We hope you can join us and we will take a moment to raise a glass to Fort George in hopes to meet there again soon.

To join the presentation, make sure you have downloaded a free Zoom app on the device you plan to watch the lecture on ahead of time. Then, when you are ready to join the group that night, click the Zoom invite link provided, and you will be connected to Thursday Night Live with CCC. Your invite link is: https://clatsopcc.zoom.us/j/92568436139

To order Fort George food and beverage on line for pick-up, visit https://www.fortgeorgetogo.com/ and either order Wednesday or before 1 p.m. on the Thursday for same-day pick-up. Make sure to give yourself time to grab your food before the lecture starts!

The presentation, “Communication In the Time of Corona” begins at 7 p.m. with the Zoom room open for participants at 6:40 p.m.

Pandemic pod, social distancing, Coronavirus, Covid-19, Zoom, Zooming, Zoomed, green screens, virtual happy hours, and also panic buying:  this is the emergent vocabulary of these extraordinary times.  Indeed, worldwide efforts to #flattenthecurve have created an exceptionally steep learning curve not only for educators and students immersed in new remote learning communities, but also families, businesses, government agencies, and the media itself, broadcasting simultaneously from living rooms around the nation.

We are also witnessing a change in our primary relationships, while attempting to get along isolated alone or confined in close proximity to family and significant others who we don’t typically have to communicate with on such a constant basis?  Is technology, like Zoom, helping or creating more problems in our social circumstance? And what role is pop-culture playing in creating a monoculture where we all sit home consuming similar media (Tiger King) and other virtual water coolers around which to  gather and discuss? The rate of change in communication approaches and concerns, is unprecedented and worthy of our attention. What’s working well? What’s not working well? How might we improve to make the most of this situation?  And what new ways of virtual interaction will remain with us when this virus is finally contained?

Clatsop Community College plans to offer two additional Thursday Night Live with CCC presentations for the Spring Term on May 21 and June 5, 2020.
