The importance of education in a free society cannot be overstated. In 1824 Thomas Jefferson wrote that “the qualifications for self-government in society are not innate. They are the result of habit and long training.”
The Learn Liberty team at the Institute for Humane Studies believes that teaching people what it means and what it takes to live in liberty is essential if we want to move towards a freer and more prosperous society. What is the most effective way to reach people with the ideas of liberty and change the world?
Announcing Learn Liberty Academy
I am proud to offer Learn Liberty’s answer: Learn Liberty Academy, a place to learn about the ideas of a free society and explore the most critical questions facing our generation.
I invite you to join us as we launch a series of experimental 3-week educational programs taught by university-affiliated professors from across the nation. We strive for nothing less than to become the very best-in-class providers of online education in order to make the world a more peaceful and prosperous place.
Be Pioneers in Helping Us Become Best-in-Class Online Education
We view this as embarking on an adventure. We plan to experiment at every step and need your opinions on instructors, content, formats, styles, and benefits like signed certificates from the professor and verified online badges to truly learn to be the best.
Just like our parent project, Learn Liberty, we embrace “beta” as more than a developmental status; it sums up our strategy of continual learning and improvement. With that, I invite you to be pioneers in helping us to learn how to engage passions and challenge worldviews to move our zeitgeist toward the way of liberty.
