The title “Intensive” is apt: you and your coursemates will be engaged in an intense, uplifting, empowering course with some of the key issues of our time and will explore what can make the biggest difference at this time in history.
- Coursework: The Intensive is divided into 8 modules, each of which includes selected videos and readings, as well as additional guided activities. These will take about 90 – 120 minutes per module, and get completed on your own time.
- Online Discussion: You will also have an opportunity to participate in structured, lively (written) discussion forums on the topics being presented, again on your own time. This will take an additional 20 minutes each week.
- Weekly Conference Calls: In addition to the coursework, each week there will be a regularly scheduled call with your small learning group. Time commitment: 75 minutes.
- Live Community Gatherings: At the beginning and end of the course, the full Intensive learning community comes together for 90-minute webcasts.
The Game Changer Intensive has a unique approach to tuition: it is voluntary and is paid at the end of the course. Upon completion, you are requested to financially invest in the Intensive, selecting an amount that reflects the value you have received from the course and that has integrity with respect to your financial means. In case it helps, an $100 donation helps cover the costs of one participant!
Please be aware that the Game Changer Intensive is primarily focused on issues and events in the United States, though most are applicable in an international context. If you live outside the U.S. and you want to take the course now, please be aware there are aspects of the course which may not be relevant to the context in the country where you live.
