Alternative Academy Spring 2020 courses - By Lebanon Support and JIBAL

Lebanon Support is glad to announce the relaunch of The Alternative Academy (AA), its joint initiative with JIBAL and part of its Civil Society Incubator.

What is the Alternative Academy?

The AA is a multi-disciplinary space for critical thinking, discussions and learning. It was born out of a shared quest for intellectually stimulating, affordable and open courses in the country. It provides alternative viewpoints and perspectives on various subjects while encouraging people to revisit and rethink mainstream concepts and ideologies. Ultimately, the AA aims at contributing to building a more open, just and inclusive society. The academy offers a wide range of courses, from social and political sciences (anthropology, sociology….) to natural sciences (physics, climatology, entomology…) as well as architecture and arts. They are led by university-level instructors or experienced individuals that are experts in their fields. Classes are accessible for all age groups and backgrounds, highly engaging and interactive, in an attempt to promote alternative teaching methods and pedagogies, one of the long-term objectives of the AA.

You can find the list of courses offered for the Spring semester from February 2020 to June 2020, with their descriptions, and details on the Alternative Academy page here, as well as in the catalogue.
