|Author, Speaker Chris Mecogliano will help facilitate this year's School Starter Course
AERO Online School Starter Course
will begin on September 26th, 2016. That's less than a month away! It will run until January. Enrollment has already started.
As we did last year, we will have a free school starters webinar on Thursday, September 8th at 9 PM Eastern Daylight time. This will work for east and west coasts of the USA but isn't great for Europeans. It actually works for Australians and Asians! The webinar will be live and people can ask questions. You can also e mail them in advance. Here is a link to last year's webinar. It will give you a LOT of information!
AERO has helped start more that 100 educational alternatives. 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. We still have some spaces left.
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.
You can take the course for up to 3 graduate credits from Antioch University New England. The full course is now $1000 but will rise to $1200 shortly. It is now $1500 if you want graduate credit.
You can get more information about the course or sign up for it
. It has already started to fill up for this year! Inquire if you need payments or scholarship help.
