Along with other faculty members of Great Discourses℠, I will be teaching Great Book Socratic Method courses online at GreatDiscourses.com during the term that begins September 2014. Great Discourses℠ is a new venture of mine to make high quality adult liberal education available to as many people as possible. We use innovative web-conferencing software to facilitate live, interactive discussion courses online that operate on the same principles as the traditional, in person discussion courses that I have long taught.
The courses I will be teaching are:
- Apologies of Socrates and Gospels of Jesus
- Arts of Affluence: Wealth and the American Dream
- The Trial and Death of Socrates
- “We Must Not Be Afraid To Be Free”: The Trials of George Anastaplo
To give prospective students an opportunity to sample an online Socratic Method discussion for themselves, I will also be teaching several instances of a free introductory Great Books discussion class during the end of August and the beginning of September:
- God’s Gadfly: An Introductory Online Discussion Class About Socrates
Registration for Great Discourses℠ faculty-led Great Books Socratic Method discussion courses is open to all adults (and mature teens with parental approval). Participation requires an Internet-connected computer or mobile device with a microphone-equipped headset. Details are available at GreatDiscourses.com.
