Sphere College Project

A New World of Learning

Week Two

Leave a comment

The second week of Sphere College classes completed today. I found two two-hour slots, secured the locations and contacted all the students. Some of the students couldn’t make the new time on such short notice, but we met at a different time on Wed night, just for this week, so there were actually three different class meetings. It was fascinating how dramatically different all the discussions were, even when exactly the same material was being covered. In fact, in the last class as far as the actual material went we only “covered” the first sentence of the chapter—actually not even the whole sentence—and it was a truly fantastic discussion (as all three were).

These students are a superb group. It is an honor to get to meet with them. I hope that it won’t be long before others get to experience some of what they produce.
