IPGK 295 – The Rhythm of Life

The Rhythm of Life is a course open to all students using as springboard the central tool of all rhythm: repetition and recurrence. Through this experience, students will learn creative thinking skills as applicable in their own discipline through the metaphor of rhythm. Through a basic understanding of the unit of measure of Time in music, the course will progress to how rhythm works in language, visual art, and finally biology as rhythm functions in our bodies. The global knowledge gained by studying rhythms of other cultures will finally be applied to the Czech language and its differences with spoken American English.
