Interesting upcoming Harvard edX : watch the teaser!
Understanding world religions is an important piece in working with others peacefully and effectively to support and encourage global health. Harvard senior lecturer Diane Moore will be teaching a MOOC series of courses through HarvardX, “World Religions Through Their Scripture.” The series, which launches this spring and is absolutely free to audit ($300 or $50 for each of the 6 courses in the series if you want a certificate), will bring together Harvard’s leading scholars in the world’s major religions: Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism, and Islam. To learn more or sign up for the course, visit Harvard edX. Or read a news story about the course.
For those in the neighborhood, there will be a panel discussion with the instructors on March 1 at 5:30 p.m. in Andover Hall. The event is free and open to the public. For more information.
