We’re convening “Toward a Literacy of Cooperation: Introduction to Cooperation Studies,”  January 24 -March 1.

A detailed syllabus: http://socialmediaclassroom.com/host/cooperation4

Cost: $300; $250 if you’ve taken a Rheingold U course before; $500 if your company reimburses you.

In addition to the monetary cost, a commitment to participate is required. The real magic is in learning the meta-skill of forming a learning community with strangers around the world in just a few weeks. To get the most out of this experience, you will need to devote 2-3 hours a week to reading, writing, mindmapping. It’s the equivalent of a graduate-level seminar.

Read the syllabus carefully. Check the schedule. The reason I’m looking for learners three weeks early is that it works better if everyone gets a week or two head start on the readings. The community is limited to 35 learners. Although the syllabus is freely world-readable, the forums, blogs, and live-sessions are limited to committed participants. This will be the fourth time that this course has been convened. I’ve learned a great deal about facilitating this community from my co-learners along the way.If you are seriously interested, let me know, and I’ll notify you when it’s time to pay me via PayPal.
