TOP REVIEWS FROM ASSESSMENT AND TEACHING OF 21ST CENTURY SKILLS
An apt course for the 21st century schools & educators. The instructors should be more interactive on twitter, after all that's what new learning is all about.\n\nKudos, the Aussie way!!
Let me heartily thank authors for the course. It was interesting and useful, and definitely I will use knowledge and experience from this course in my own practice.
This is one of the most informative and useful course that I had so far. I have actually started using this in teaching my kids! Must learn for all educators!
Very helpful. Hope to be able to apply many of these in my own teaching. I would, however, have enjoyed to see more of the concepts in action - classroom.
Frequently Asked Questions
When will I have access to the lectures and assignments?
Access to lectures and assignments depends on your type of enrollment. If you take a course in audit mode, you will be able to see most course materials for free. To access graded assignments and to earn a Certificate, you will need to purchase the Certificate experience, during or after your audit. If you don't see the audit option:
- The course may not offer an audit option. You can try a Free Trial instead, or apply for Financial Aid.
- The course may offer 'Full Course, No Certificate' instead. This option lets you see all course materials, submit required assessments, and get a final grade. This also means that you will not be able to purchase a Certificate experience.
What will I get if I purchase the Certificate?
When you purchase a Certificate you get access to all course materials, including graded assignments. Upon completing the course, your electronic Certificate will be added to your Accomplishments page - from there, you can print your Certificate or add it to your LinkedIn profile. If you only want to read and view the course content, you can audit the course for free.
What is the refund policy?
You will be eligible for a full refund until two weeks after your payment date, or (for courses that have just launched) until two weeks after the first session of the course begins, whichever is later. You cannot receive a refund once you’ve earned a Course Certificate, even if you complete the course within the two-week refund period. See our full refund policy.
Is financial aid available?
Yes, Coursera provides financial aid to learners who cannot afford the fee. Apply for it by clicking on the Financial Aid link beneath the "Enroll" button on the left. You’ll be prompted to complete an application and will be notified if you are approved. Learn more.
Do I need teaching experience?
No teaching experience is necessary. An interest in and concern for schooling is all that is needed. We anticipate that practising teachers will find this class rewarding.
