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

Written 11 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 10 months 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 9 months 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.

Mindshift: Break Through Obstacles to Learning and Discover Your Hidden Potential

Written 8 months ago
I found the course's conviction that gaining new skills will lead to new jobs to be extraordinarily counter to reality, politically problematic, and potentially psychologically damaging. However some tips and information shared were interesting/useful.

Get Organized: How to be a Together Teacher

Written 5 months ago
I am usually very skeptical about organizational systems, but this course is about helping you understand the psychology of why a system might or might not work, as well as breaking it down into several parts rather than a magic "one-size-fits-all" solution.
