About this Specialization
Applied Learning Project
By the end of this specialization, you'll be able to:
Use the animations and illustrations provided in the specialization to develop best practices training sessions for your fellow teachers, and also help your students to learn more deeply and effectively. You'll be a star with the latest insights on learning!
Make or tweak a working lesson plan using the “Learn It – Link It” lesson plans guideline and blank template provided in the specialization. You can use this lesson plan to help remind you of key best practices as you are teaching.
Teach online either "live" or via video with confidence that your methods are not only helping students pay attention, but that you are also helping them to more easily grasp the key ideas.
Use techniques from movie-making to help motivate and inspire students, as well as to encourage your students shift and lift their very identity as learners.
How the Specialization Works
A Coursera Specialization is a series of courses that helps you master a skill. To begin, enroll in the Specialization directly, or review its courses and choose the one you'd like to start with. When you subscribe to a course that is part of a Specialization, you’re automatically subscribed to the full Specialization. It’s okay to complete just one course — you can pause your learning or end your subscription at any time. Visit your learner dashboard to track your course enrollments and your progress.
Every Specialization includes a hands-on project. You'll need to successfully finish the project(s) to complete the Specialization and earn your certificate. If the Specialization includes a separate course for the hands-on project, you'll need to finish each of the other courses before you can start it.
Earn a Certificate
When you finish every course and complete the hands-on project, you'll earn a Certificate that you can share with prospective employers and your professional network.
