What we learned together this week
Key take aways and learnings
Our flipped classroom format is exactly what it sounds like - it inverts a conventional classroom experience by carving out more time for doubts and insights that are hard to capture through newsletters, masterclasses and 1:1 office hours. The idea behind this is that peer sharing and social learning complemented by a guided discussion under a trained coach works wonders for grasping complex concepts. We have had the Writing Bootcamp, Education Policy Bootcamp, Careers in Policy Bootcamp, Masters+MBA weekly huddle and the CEO Fellowship in this format.
Taking this further, we are excited to launch the "I don't know what I want to do with my life” Fellowship. This age-agnostic fellowship will help you learn new things, read charming content, meet interesting people and discover what piques your curiosity. No one else can tell you what you should do. The decision needs to come from you but there are some proven techniques that can help figure out the problem that needs you the most. Isn’t that what your work should be about?
