A program on the California Missions has landed Fresno Pacific a national award for interactive learning.
FPU is one of 40 cultural organizations to receive a 2011-2012 Pinnacle Award from the Center for Interactive Learning and Collaboration (CILC). The Indianapolis-based nonprofit offers videoconferencing presentations from more than 200 museums, state parks, national historic sites and other organizations to educational outlets such as schools and senior citizens centers.
A personal interest in the biblical tabernacle has resulted in an unusual online course through the FPU Center for Professional Development (CPD).
“About five years ago I fell in love with study of the Tabernacle. It’s been a brewing thing in my heart for some time,” said Marvin Harms. Harms joined forces with Elmer Martens to create a series of four lectures of 30-40 minutes each that is available for 2 units of credit through the FPU Center for Professional Development. The content is available for free, or 2 units of credit are available for a fee.
