Socelor module topics are based on the problems that we need to address  within society; the list is currently limited to global problems. There is no reason for learners not to suggest their own  global or local topic interests,  and we can look for others who might want to join in a bespoke study group.

Modules

Following is a list of modules that you can enrol in to obtain a certificate of completion. The evaluation of your work will not be in depth but you will be given an indication of quality on a scale of 1 – 5 (from poor to brilliant). The only topic that you are required to study when studying module by module is The Science of Learning. Until this module is completed, this is the only module that is available for you to study.

After you have finished the required module, other modules will be available when the minimum number of people (about 30) have requested the module.

Each ten-week module is $300.00 CAD.

Mandatory: The Science of Learning (focused on Cognitive Enablers).  Learners will begin to understand what the Socelor model of learning is based on – the scientific understanding about how we learn.

Optional Modules

Learning and Education

About how we learn and what this means for education.  The aim if this module is for you to understand why the Socelor method is designed the way it is and why it is so effective for your learning.

Regardless of your station or circumstances, this module would be an eye-opener as you discover how far away education is from what the evidence tells us about how people actually learn. We don’t impose a view on you. The Socelor method of learning means you will find the answers yourself.

More detail can be found on this module here: Learning & Education

Global Climate Change

Studying climate change and the effects it will have on our society. In addition, understanding how and why climate change denial works is a possible topic (it is up to you).

Global Poverty and Hunger

Possible avenues of study – along with anything else that you want to pursue:

  • How does poverty and hunger effect individuals or society
  • Why does it exist
  • What solutions might be employed to alleviate this

Racism

The how’s, whys and wherefores of this pervasive problem along with possible solutions.

Roots of International Conflict

International conflicts have plagued society from the beginning. How do these conflicts and what can we do to stop them.

Social Cognition

How do people interact with each other in society and understanding the thinking that underlies individuals interactions within society. These interactions range from addictive behaviour to sexual assault and everything in between.
