Introduction to 21st Century Skills

University of Wisconsin–Madison via edX


Learn how to teach communication, teamwork, critical thinking, and self-motivated learning — four 21st-century skills strongly linked to student success. College educators and administrators gain a strong foundation in the theory, research, and practical applications of these crucial skills in both face-to-face and online college courses. You also examine skills frameworks, critiques of these frameworks, instructional design principles, and the science behind each of the four skills. The course features tips and strategies for teaching these skills in online courses, with a focus on instructional design, teaching, and assessment within online modalities.
