Full course description


Teaching is a dynamic process, and great teachers use feedback and insights to monitor student learning and adjust teaching "in the moment." In addition, great teachers use feedback and data to continually improve their courses. 

In this 4-week course, you'll learn a variety of teaching and technology tools that allow you to reflect on your teaching, your course, and your students, that will allow you to build relationships that matter with your students. You'll focus on designing customized strategies for dynamic teaching that meets the needs of your current students, while also developing a process for continually improving your online course. 


By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • design student pre-assessments and self-assessments to get to know your students;
  • create a series of student self-assessments and course surveys that help you measure student learning;
  • use formative assessment to monitor student learning;
  • use analytics from your course to make changes during and after the course.
