COcon 2020 is all about classes! Easy, intermediate, complex: there are classes for every level.

Teaching Classes

Everything starts with teaching: we depend on our volunteers teachers, and we need teachers to register early and submit their classes. The success of COcon depends upon our volunteer teachers! Note that you must register for COcon before you can register to teach.

Taking Classes

COcon will not have ticketing for classes. Doors will open shortly before classes begin at 10am each day; you can go to any class that you wish to take and that has room when you arrive.

Because of fire safety regulations, please do not sit on the floor if you cannot get a chair. If the class is full, you will need to go to your next choice. You can always find the instructor later, or someone who attended the class to teach you informally in the community room. If there is enough of a demand, an informal class can be scheduled in the evening in the community room.

As a courtesy, please wait until the previous class is over before entering the classroom, and give people time to gather up their belongings.
