Live, online, collaborative


Unlike most online courses, the Weekender doesn't revolve around pre-recorded lectures or live-but-passive webinars. Instead, the focus is on real-time interactive human learning — two-way listening, thoughtful conversation, and exploring meaty material with experienced and enthusiastic guides.

Exploration, liberal-arts-style


The Weekender is modeled after the essence of the liberal-arts college experience: engaging with broad-based perspectives and critical humanistic thinking on contemporary issues through interdisciplinary, discussion-based learning. Don't expect textbooks, tests, or job-focused skills.

A weekend trip for the mind


The Weekender is designed to be beginner-friendly and accessible. No need for degrees or academic backgrounds. Think of it as an excursion for your mind. Whether beginner or scholar, however, you'll want to come prepared — with solid content and rigorous approach (scalable to all levels), it's thinking caps required!
