En résumé

The ecological and social challenges we are facing as a human species are multiple, complex, and vexing. The difficulty in finding viable solutions can often lead to a sense of disempowerment. Thomas Berry pointed a way forward with his understanding of the Great Work of our times that would help to give rise to an Ecozoic era of mutually enhancing human-Earth relations. The Great Work implies that each person has a contribution to make toward the flourishing of the Earth community. That is the invitation of this capstone course for students to become participants in transformative learning. In this capstone we offer a venue to respond to our contemporary challenges by exploring ways in which the creativity of humans can be more clearly and effectively aligned with the creativity of universe and Earth processes. This is what is intended by “living cosmology”, namely how do we live within a universe story in ways that transform us? How can we dwell within a broadened consciousness of a new story of evolution? How can this empower a new context for education, art, spirituality, and ethics along with ecology, politics, economics, and business? Projects may involve the humanities or the sciences or an interdisciplinary combination. This could involve arts, literature, poetry, painting, music, or the natural and social sciences, ecological problem solving or policy-making. Both original thought and practical applications are encouraged. Interdisciplinary thinking and fresh solutions will be fostered. Upcoming sessions: January 30 2017 - March 20 2017 April 24, 2017 - June 12, 2017 July 17, 2017 - September 4, 2017 October 9, 2017 - November 27 2017 January 1, 2018 - February 19, 2018 March 26, 2018 - May 14, 2018

Although the idea of this course is excellent, the reason I gave this course 2 stars is because of the logistical issues with the peer review process. SInce the idea was for participants to develop a project with ongoing editing based on peer feedback, this process is key. There were issues with accessing comments from peer reviewers and not enough submissions for me to complete all the required peer reviews. In the end, coursera staff were able to override the last bit so I could complete the course, but the experience was quite frustrating and disappointing. The other learners who I did have a chance to share work with were wonderful and thoughtful and several also expressed similar frustrations. This capstone course could be improved with the addition of supervisory staff/project mentors. Overall, however, the 4 course series was excellent.
