The Wilmette Institute is working towards constructive engagement by raising the capacity of participants to meaningfully contribute to social discourse and social action. This presentation will explore how Bahá’í online learning can lead towards personal and collective transformation with participants applying spiritual principles and academic knowledge to grassroots efforts. Learn how learners, faculty and administrators create a learning community in courses such as Anti-Black Racism in the U.S., Climate Change, and Sustainable Development that nurture constructive engagement.
Note: The backbone of this webinar is a poster presentation submitted to the Association for Bahá’í Studies’ 2020 online conference. The Wilmette Institute’s Executive Team will be joined by selected Faculty and students. All are welcome to explore the WI’s pedagogy, and its plans and hopes for the coming years.
