The Core Module is the centerpiece of the RZIM Academy and the starting point for all participants. It is entirely online and offers 26 lectures over 12 weeks featuring some of the most experienced and gifted apologists on the RZIM team. The aim of this program is to help individuals become better equipped to give a reason for the hope that they have.
Unlike traditional online classes, this program is designed to offer practical application and a highly interactive environment where all students can receive regular feedback from peers and RZIM Academy moderators. Discussion forums and other course elements have been customized for this program, and are designed to make it easy for students to quickly provide encouragement or suggestions to their peers and build community as all participants learn together.
The pace of the Core Module is set from week to week, but there are no synchronous elements, so it can accommodate any schedule within each week. Every Monday morning, new content will be made available for the week, and each student can access that content at any time from that point forward.
Cost: $229. Scholarships are also available by applying here.
Lecturers: Ravi, Michael Ramsden, John Lennox, Os Guinness, Amy Orr-Ewing,Tom Price, Stuart McAllister, Andy Bannister, Michelle Tepper, John Njoroge, Vince Vitale, Tanya Walker, Alister McGrath
