Current and Upcoming Opportunities

MOOC-The Science of Learning What Every Teacher Needs to KnowThe Science of Learning - What Every Teacher Needs to Know

This MOOC (massive online open course) provides a self-paced opportunity to examine common misconceptions and misunderstandings about learning that can prevent students from learning at their fullest capacity. Along the way you will explore the practical implications of cognitive science for classroom teaching in terms of choosing effective instructional strategies, developing useful assessments, motivating student effort, and designing learner-centered curricular units.  The MOOC is offered through EdX and the White House ConnectEd initiative and was created in partnership with Columbia University's Center for Teaching and Learning.  Participants can elect to receive a certificate of completion issued by EdX.
