Over the years, Ivy Tech Community College Fort Wayne faculty
get creative in the classroom by offering some special topic courses for
students. Who would ever thought you could take a writing class themed after
the popular series Harry Potter? We
have put together a sampling of introductory classes offered this spring
semester. Most start this Monday (Jan. 14), but may be offered in the fall, summer,
or future spring semesters as well.
ENG 111 English
Want to come back to school but worried about getting
through the prerequisites? In the past three years, the English program has
been revamping their introductory writing courses to incorporate interesting
themes. This spring, Susan Howard is running a Harry Potter themed class
entitled, “Harry Potter—The Innocence and Experience.”

McCormick, who has successfully started a brand, Travels with Delaney,
using social media. Students will learn about the goals of social media
marketing, and how it can either create or enhance business. The class
will focus on creating value in content, maximizing search optimization, and

VISC 183 Introduction
This fun tech class covers user interfaces and user
experiences on websites, mobile apps, and more. If the user interface (think
Netflix menu) isn’t designed well, then the user experience won’t go well.
Students will use Adobe XD to create or improve existing interfaces. Some
technology experience is highly recommended.
This class is one of our 2nd 8-week class
offerings, which begin March 18. Contact Erin Salyers at firstname.lastname@example.org
