Quiz 03.02 is very vague in what answer is expected. Even after several tried I was unable to complete the quiz. Please look into the issue. Otherwise the course content and delivery is excellent

Good overview of teaching concepts. New educators will take a lot away from this course if taken seriously. Nice review with some occasional insights for more experienced professors.

Very important course for those of us aspiring to go into teaching in the medical and health professions. The content is very rich with so much information and skills development assignments and quizzes. Though very tasking, one needs to fully concentrate in order to understand and follow the instructor. Much has been learned from the course on how to impart knowledge to new learners and old learners alike. I would recommend the course to all aspiring instructors in the health professions. Thank you University of Michigan and the instructor Prof. Stalburg, you know your subject very well

Very well-organized self-paced course with lots of information not only from the materials but also from the discussion boards and peer-assessment. The course encourages you to self-reflect and assess your current practice and reflect on how to improve.
