Think Resilience is offered in two ways: as a self-directed course you can start at any time and take at your own pace, and as a scheduled six-week guided course with host Richard Heinberg. (We also support discussion groups and classroom use).
The Think Resilience Self-Directed Course consists of 22 short videos (between 5 and 20 minutes long) that explore the interrelated crises of the twenty-first century, and what we as citizens, students, and community leaders can do to respond to them. The course is designed to serve as an introduction to a broad range of topics rather than an in-depth exploration.
By enrolling in the self-directed course, you get access to all the videos, as well as printable transcripts, suggested readings, and discussion forums where you can interact with other students on the topics covered. If you would like to earn a Certificate of Course Completion, you must provide substantive answers to the seven quizzes that appear throughout the course. (If you do not want a certificate you may ignore the quizzes.)
The Guided Course has the same material as the Self-Directed Course, plus the opportunity to engage directly with the host of the Think Resilience videos, Post Carbon Institute Senior Fellow Richard Heinberg through six weekly, hour-long webcast group discussions. Participants will be assigned three to five videos to watch each week in advance of each group discussion. During each call, Richard will share additional insights on the subject matter and answer questions submitted live or in advance. (The group calls will be recorded and made available to those who aren’t able to attend.) Participants who complete the course will receive a certificate of completion from Post Carbon Institute.
