Salvete my Roman friends,
I have been considering this "Academia Minervalis" very interesting. I myself am very interested in Greek geometry and the applications in Roman times, and I would love to explain these ideas to "non-mathematicians". I have also experience in other scientific achievements in Greek and Roman science.
My main academic knowledge is concentrated to 17th century philosophy (Doctoral thesis almost finished), but this is of course heavily influenced by Greek and Roman science.
Have you been interested in participating or creating these courses? I would like to hear from your feelings and experiences. Usually I would consider myself crazy doing work for free, but in this case it would be an honor to spread the wisdom of our ancestor to other people- it is not work at all, but the privilege.
There might be risks too- what if people just won´t participate our courses?March 20, 2016 at 10:50 am #3615
It’s great that among us there is a specialist in such specific field of knowledge!quote :
This kind of risk is always there. In some ways, this risk an integral satellite of any undertaking. But this should not become a barrier to the implementation of the project. "Winning the one who is not afraid to take risks" – as the saying goes (=March 21, 2016 at 12:38 am #3621
The type of course described is exactly what I hope the Academia Minervalis hosts.
The online instructional design system allows for a course to be developed with lectures, readings, presentations, etc. Once designed a student can work through the course at their own leisure. The only responsibility of the instructor, once a course is designed, would be to provide feedback to the student. Some of this feedback is automated if multiple choice test are administered online.
So sometimes there might be a lull in students, at other times, there might be more students. The system being developed will accommodate this. This is a real life school. So the quality of the instructor will play a role! If you are well known and have a reputation for being a knowledgeable Roman within our community, you will probably have few problems finding students even if teaching an obscure, but fascinating topic!
