In this post find great courses to help you achieve your teaching goals this year.

Whether you’re looking to develop your teaching skills or help your students learn exciting new topics in 2017, we’ve got courses to help. Best of all every course is broken down into manageable chunks so you can fit your learning around your timetable.

My goal is to get students coding

Coding has been dubbed the ‘most important job skill of the future’ but there’s still a worrying lack of young people learning how to code. Make 2017 the year you help change that, with a course that offers practical advice.

My goal is to help open education to all

Number 4 on the the UN’s list of global universal sustainable development goals (SDGs) is ““Ensure inclusive and quality education for all and promote lifelong learning”. Despite this, in 2013, 59 million primary-school age children were out of school. Now is the time to learn what barriers to education children face, and how to break them down.

My goal is to improve STEM assessments

Assessments for Learning (AfL) are widely used in education, but they’re not always applied effectively, especially in STEM. Make 2017 the year you learn the ins and outs of using AfL in STEM teaching – from the theory to using them in the lab.
