Judy and Linda, through the Commonwealth Education Trust, have designed a 7 week Coursera course called “Planning for Teaching and Learning.” This course is the 5thcomponent of an 8 part series of courses that make up the Foundations of Teaching for Learning Specialization. The Foundations of Teaching for Learning program is a specialization primarily for people who are currently teaching, but have had little or no formal teacher education. It is an introductory program that considers the three domains of being a teacher: Professional Knowledge and Understanding; Professional Practice; and Professional Values, Relationships and Engagement.
Coursera offers individuals the opportunity to take courses through their online education platform for free. Sometimes a small fee (optional) is charged in order to be granted a verified or specialized certificate. Learners from all over the world can participate, working at their own schedules, and interacting through online forums. Check out the video where Linda and Judy describe the course in more detail.
