Learning How to Learn: Powerful mental tools to help you master tough subjects

Written 2 months ago
I found this course to be very helpful for me both as a learner and teacher. I am developing some lessons for my students on "how to study" based on the material right now.

Surviving Your Rookie Year of Teaching: 3 Key Ideas & High Leverage Techniques

Written a month ago
Many techniques are unhelpful for teachers outside of the US public school context, this should be made clear in the introduction. Does not discuss a vision of what education is or should be, rather imposes a certain pre-existing view on all participants. Just because some research findings are cited does not make the techniques culturally neutral. Additionally, I was deeply uncomfortable with the portrayal of classrooms with all black students and a white (or white-passing) teacher. The vision of the teacher presented here is absolutely a tool of systemic oppression and cultural imperialism.

Gender, Family, and Social Change in Contemporary South Korea

Written 3 days ago
Very poorly structured from a technical standpoint. Very confusing in terms of supplementary readings and recommended external videos. I was unimpressed at how much of the women's history portion of the course was covered completely from a male perspective, by a male professor using examples of fiction by men. Although attempts were made to be critical of this view, I felt that they did not go far enough.
