While educators are expected to be fully trained and experienced so as to create an excellent learning environment for students, most of the teachers fail to do so, irrespective of they having received formal teaching education.
Foundations of Teaching for Learning: Planning for Teaching and Learning is a free online course conducted by the Commonwealth Education Trust in association with Coursera. For teachers who couldn’t receive formal training, the course will help them consider how to develop appropriate learning goals for individual and group of students. Subscribers shall learn how to plan learning activities to engage students in ways that will mentor them to achieve their goals.
The course is a part of the Foundations of Teaching for Learning Program, introduced to assist people who are currently in the teaching profession, but have had no formal teacher education, to train them or improve their understanding to work as a teacher.
