We’ve now developed an online academy for students who would like to learn at their own pace, using the Teachable platform. Each of these courses provides students with an online, at-your-own-pace learning environment that includes lecture videos, quizzes to test your understanding, downloadable handouts and worksheets, detailed lesson pages, discussion forums and reflection questions, and curated links to other online resources on the topics, texts, and thinkers.
