There are no words to express the transformation happening within me... I have never participated in higher education courses that actually build my capacity spiritually and intellectually to this degree and cannot wait to take more courses in the future!
The workload was reasonable, there were a variety of learning modes (videos, podcasts, readings, discussions). We received the assignment guide at the beginning of the course, and it was very detailed.
I feel so fortunate to take part in this course and the Wilmette Institute as I feel I build my capacity to learn and engage in discourse in ways that are meaningful to my community.
