AERO has helped start more that 100 educational alternatives that we know of. You can see a partial list
. Since AERO's mission is the Education Revolution, we try to help people create as many learner-centered alternatives as we can. This course has been the most effective way we have discovered to help people go from their dream and vision to the reality of a new, vibrant educational alternative.
The course is limited to 25 participating sites, although up to five people can participate from each site. Last year the course was quickly filled with an amazing variety of participants from around the country and around the world. This has been the case for the last few years, so you should
to guarantee a space.
The course is generally not in real time except for an occasional optional live Skype or Google chat. The course is on a dedicated website that you access as you have time, responding to each section as we open it and responding to the posts of other students in the course. The site has videos, audio interviews, book excerpts, etc. So you can access it as you are able from anywhere in the world.
The two instructors are
, director of AERO, and
, author of How to Grow a School and long-time director of Albany Free School. But the key to the course is the interaction between the students.
Again you can take the course for 2 or 3 graduate credits from Antioch University New England. The full course is now $1000 but will rise to $1200 as the course fills up. It is now $1500 if you want graduate credit.
