What’s New for 2019-2020?
Educational providers are constantly developing new courses to help us stay up to date. Some college and university websites have a What’s New program and course listing which is very helpful. Others you would have to scan to see what fits your needs or call the program department and ask them what is new.

New glass blowing Netflix series highlights Sheridan students, staff and alumni
This section used a drill down process organized by program area, which is more time consuming to scan than a listing of programs or courses that have a link to program areas.
This course listing has a filter which allows you to choose mode of delivery (in class, online); academic term; days of the week, and campus location). This is very helpful as there over 400 courses to scan, especially days of the week, as often due to work and family commitments there is only one day of the week when you can go to class.

We suggest you call programs and ask what it is new. If you would like a What’s New program and course listing let the continuing education department know. Sheridan and Durham seems to have stopped doing this as last year we could find a What’s New list but not this year.
