This list of subjects is just the beginning and will be shaped by the learners and their interests as Socelor grows. The modules are based on problems that we need to address and the list is currently limited to global problems. There is no reason for learners not to suggest their own interests and we can look for others who might want to study the same subjects – either global problems or local problems.
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.
Learning and Education (Express your interest here)
Learning and Education is about how we learn and what this means for education. All of us have experience in education and it is a topic that we can all relate to. 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 find out just how far away education is from what the evidence tells us about how people actually learn – and I don’t tell you anything (because of how the Socelor method of learning works) you find out for yourself.
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
The how’s, why’s 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.
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.
