Sundays @ 9: Wootters in Rwanda

Our summer "Sundays at 9" series continues this Sunday, August 22, at 9:00 AM, when Adrienne and Bill Wootters will present "Teaching and Learning in Rwanda," an illustrated talk about their recent sabbatical experiences in Africa.

The "Sundays at 9" series features speakers whose life's work has brought them to a moment of challenge. Both Bill and Adrienne Wootters teach college physics, Bill at Williams and Adrienne at MCLA. They spent the first six months of 2010 in Kigali, Rwanda, teaching college-level physics at the Kigali Institute of Science and Technology, where Adrienne was a Fulbright Scholar. Her responsibilities included teaching two courses, supervising senior projects, and leading the physics department in a curricular review. Bill initially had no formal appointment, but was recruited to supervise several senior projects and to help a few students prepare for the Graduate Record Exam in physics, a prerequisite for graduate study in the US.

Their presentation will take place in the parish library, at the red doors entrance, 35 Park Street. Information: 413-458-8144.
