Yesterday we posted our FAQ, which addresses many of the broad questions people have asked about our Institute. Check it out if you haven’t had a chance yet! Today, we’d like to answer another question we hear a lot: What exactly are these classes like?
While our courses will vary greatly depending on the topic and the instructor, the actual classes will all have a few things in common:
1. They will be reading-focused, seminar-style classes in which the conversation is driven not only by the instructor but by everyone present. Classes will never be larger than 20 people.They will be rigorous, but fun and exciting!
2. They will be held here:[slideshow]
These are a few photos of Building on Bond, a beautiful cafe/bar/restaurant that has generously given us space to hold classes. There will be food available if anyone wants it and an (optional) informal cocktail hour after every class where people can get to know each other more socially and continue the conversation from that evening’s class.
3. Each class is held once a week, for 2 hours at a time, in the evening (i.e. after work.) Unless specified, books are included in the cost of the course itself and will be provided by the instructor on the first day of class.
