Take a MOOC in research-based teaching!

by Stephanie Chasteen on August 25, 2015

I had the good fortune to be involved in a MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) aimed at teaching graduate students and new faculty about evidence-based teaching strategies.  The MOOC is running again this year — check it out!

An Introduction to Evidence-Based STEM Teaching is run through the CIRTL network (great folks, good mission, great expertise).  It runs for 8 weeks through Coursera, starting September 28, and you can expect to do about 4 hours of work per week.  Some folks are forming small learning communities around the course (e.g., discussion groups, class meetings, etc.) — see the website for how to start one or find one.

Here is the short introduction video

That course sounds interesting, I have only taken one class by Coursera but it is very useful and makes the subject easy-to-learn.

My children have been using an app called MarkSharks to study science and it is extremely interactive and makes learning fun.
You can use this link (http://bit.ly/1DOs9Of) to download it from the Google Play store.
Are there any MOOC’s that are as interactive and sensory as this app?
