With this seven-module online certificate, you will learn how to teach communication, teamwork, critical thinking, and self-motivated learning—four “soft skills” strongly linked to student success. This course will provide college educators and administrators with a strong foundation in the theory, research, and practical applications of these crucial 21st-century skills. You’ll also examine skills frameworks, critiques of these frameworks, instructional design principles, and the science behind each of the four skills.
Course is taught by award-winning author and presenter Matthew Hora.
At the conclusion of the course, students will demonstrate:
- an in-depth and critical understanding of 21st-century skills frameworks
- a deeper understanding of the research behind teamwork, communication, critical thinking, and self-regulated learning
- an understanding of how these four skills should be conceptualized and taught in their own disciplines
- how to incorporate best practices for teaching these skills into their own curriculum and instruction
