ThinQ (www.schoolofthinq.com) announces a web-course on Inquiry and Integration in Education (IIE). With the fourth cohort commencing this year, join the 500+ learners who have already embarked on this immersing journey.
The course starts on 25 May and ends on 26 October 2018.
The deadline for application for the course is 10 May 2018.
ThinQ is a group that believes that the purpose of education must encircle the physical, emotional, intellectual, pragmatic, aesthetic, and ethical wellness of individuals. Such wellness is essential to our ability to understand and change the world around us, and to enable not just success but also enhancement of its entire ecosystem.

Worried? Relax. Given the experience of previous participants, we assure you that you will have no hesitation in trying to critically understand issues across knowledge domains. What is more, the level of information required of you in each discipline is not more than that of a 10th Grade student.

An LT in IIE is typically a package made up of readings and/or videos, designed to develop inquiry, critical thinking, and integration abilities.
We will mail you a new LT every alternate week. Each LT will have 2 weeks devoted to it. You are expected to actively engage with the material — read/watch, think through, and then send in your responses.
Participants who successfully complete the course, upon written request, will receive a course completion certificate. By successful completion, we mean the regularity and quality of submissions in response to the Learning Triggers. It is based on the degree of engagement and of learning that the submissions indicate, and the nature of questions they raise.
The fee for the course is Rs. 15,000 (plus a small convenience charge from the payment gateway), time, and energy to the extent (minimum of 4 hours a week) possible for you.
To register, please fill in the application form.
We have a very limited number of partial fee-waivers for those who face genuine and severe financial constraints. If you require a fee waiver, please register for the course, and then send an email, with ‘FEE WAIVER’ as SUBJECT, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
