Java in 5 Minutes -- a free class in Berkeley, Friday, July 15, 1pm-5pm See: course info.

Write to Discover your Enneagram Type -- 6-8pm July 13, and 6-8pm, July 14, in Berkeley. $35 for two sessions. See: course info.

Available Courses

  • The Enneagram, an ancient personality system dating back to the Sufis, is gaining in popularity as a tool for personal transformation. This esoteric system, in the form of a 9-pointed geometric shape, helps us to identify the bias in our perceptions, note when we are under stress, and blossom into our best selves.

    In this two-day course we will learn the mechanics of the Enneagram system, and look at our writings to help identify our true types. We will then have interactive discussions about the stress, security, and wings of our type. Our hope is to continue as an explorative community online, with the goal of becoming healthy individuals.

    Please come to the first session prepared with a written answer to each of the six prompts listed on the syllabus.

  • The Computer Science Socialism departement at ECBerkeley is happy to offer "Java in 5 Minutes" in downtown Berkeley, July 15, 2011. This free, 2 hour class will focus first on turning participants into Java programmers, then spending the remaining hour and 55 minutes exercising this awesome power in hands-on manipulation of screen objects such as buttons and windows, colors, text, and some mathematical 3D graphing. (For those with the stamina and interest, we'll keep going until 5pm.) We'll use the Beanshell interpreter, which allows you immediately to start programming and see visual results. Please enroll yourself in the class, then follow the instructions on the class page, and contact the instructor if you need help setting up your laptop prior to the class.
  • Introduction to Psychology is a semester or full-year high school course. This survey class will blend theoretical and historical knowledge with personal exploration and interaction with the themes. Students will examine topics through readings, personal journals, online forums, and semester projects. This literature-based course will include fiction, memoir, theoretical writings, films, and scientific journals. The course will cover (1) Society and Difference: gender, identity, culture, and group behavior; (2) Abnormal Psychology and Adolescent Issues; (3) Freud, Psychoanalysis and 19th Century Women; and (4) The History of Psychological Theory and Treatment, from the Middle Ages to Neuroscience. A readings sample includes: "The Laramie Project"; "The Scarlet Letter"; "Girl, Interrupted"; "The Yellow Wallpaper"; "My Lobotomy"; "Harrison Bergeron"; and "Ordinary People." See the Course Syllabus.
