A student favorite for the past decade, Socrates Hours provide another opportunity for students to create their own VBI experience. Socrates Hours is our more spontaneous, informal alternative to the rigid practice of office hours. During Socrates Hours, the entire VBI staff is available to answer questions, give feedback on drills, review modules, or just talk about debate. Some chats during Socrates Hours even turn into impromptu lectures.
At Socrates Hours, students can work with any VBI instructor, and most students get help from multiple instructors during any given session. Many instructors also permit, but do not require, appointments to meet at Socrates Hours.
