In gratitude for your collaboration with DOMUNI, the Dominican University Online, we offer IDYM members, free of charge, a course about Dominicanism to support personal formation and to reflect together with other young people in this community study experience.
The course is aimed at all young Dominicans who are interested in exploring the life of Saint Dominic and the Order and his dedication to preaching. This is a great opportunity to access quality training and in an innovative way. The course will run entirely on an online training platform from Domuni and therefore will need an Internet connection or access to it.
Each participant will be asked to read or display materials from each one of the stages and relate their thoughts on the subject in their forum assigned by language: Spanish, English or French.
You can access the training materials for all languages, but should only participate in the forum of the language chosen for the course. We also have additional reference materials and we can add those that are proposed by the students themselves. We want to use this space as a place to study and share reflection, so it is important to have active participation of those entering the course. Since it is free, active participation is a commitment that must be accepted by every IDYM members who chooses to register for this course. They should also be able to read and write properly in the language of the course you choose: Spanish, English or French. The course will be conducted in 3 stages of three weeks each, plus an initial stage for presentations and introductions. This organization gives enough time to develop each of the stages reflectively and without neglecting usual occupations and responsibilities.
The stages are
- April 6-12, 2015 / Initial Stage: Introduction and Presentation of Students
- April 13-May 3, 2015 / 1st Stage: Who is Dominic?
- May 4-24, 2015 /2nd Stage: Preaching
- May 25-June 14, 2015 / 3rd Stage: An Evangelized Institution Enrollment
The number of students accepted is limited, 25 entries per language (Spanish, English and French), so it's important to register early to avoid running out of space in this unique opportunity.
The registration will start on March 5 and end March 31 and the order of arrival of requests will be respected. Registration will take place through an online form, which will be enabled starting from March 5th. All IDYM members who wish to register must also inform the national coordinator of their country after filling out the form.
Every registration will be verified to ensure their membership in the movement.
