This course doesn't just talk about putting theory into practice; it takes you through a step-by-step approach to building the competencies you need to begin or continue to transform your classroom.  And while it is helping you develop competencies and skills, it is also helping you build your personal library of student-tested resources.  During the course you will create, implement and revise a problem-based lesson using educational technology as well as develop a list of problem-based learning projects for future use.   Deepen your understanding of new and updated instructional models then apply those models to a lesson and try it with your students.  

During this course you will build 

  • A Problem-Based lesson using instructional technology
  • A Revised lesson specifically targeted at blended instruction
  • A list of PBL and Blended-learning projects to use in the future

I found the course to be enlightening. It would've been most helpful to have had more videos of classes depicting various approaches contained in the course. Sometimes I would try to go on links below the written text of the lesson and they would not be available. Perhaps you could update them? This was all new to me - thank you!

I probably should have taken this course first. It seemed to be more of an introduction than an in-depth look at specifics.
