ICNC is pleased to announce a call for applications for a free, seven-week, participant-led online course: “Civil Resistance Struggles: How Ordinary People Win Rights, Freedom, and Justice.”
This course will take place on ICNC’s new online learning platform starting on February 8. The application deadline is Sunday, February 4, 2018 at 11:59 p.m. EST.
In this course, about 50 highly motivated and collaborative participants from around the world will:
- Study scheduled modules of selected readings, videos, and pre-recorded experts and practitioners’ input on key aspects of nonviolent resistance campaigns and movements;
- Participate in online discussion forums by sharing thoughts and ideas about course content that will help deepen individual learning;
- Share experiences and stories related to course themes to build a collaborative learning community with other learners;
- Take responsibility for the successful completion of two small-group interactive assignments using interactive communication and online collaboration tools, which are then shared with all other course participants.
This course will take place on ICNC’s new online learning platform starting on February 8, with a live orientation webinar that will guide admitted participants through signing up, logging in, interacting in the online space, and getting the most out of their online learning. Ongoing technical and process questions can be sent to ICNC’s course administrators, but the course will not have faculty moderators. The ultimate responsibility for the success of the course will depend on each participant staying active, working together effectively, and helping each other build a strong and motivated learning community.
The application deadline is Sunday, February 4, 2018 at 11:59 p.m. EST.
(Candidates will be informed of application status by February 7, 2018)
