Current and Upcoming Opportunities
The 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.
