Content and instructors were excellent! Being an educator for 15 years, I learnt a lot. First and foremost, how the brain functions and how important is to understand the cognitive and metacognitive process of every learner. Great linkages between theory and practice and between different aspects of learning (motivation, self-regulation, feedback etc). I have recommended it to 5 colleagues already. Thank you!

So interesting and useful, I found it more necessary than I expected at first sight. Well structured and with deep but accessible contents. I've changed my mind; I need more of this. Thank you very much.

Well paced and stimulating. I thought the assessment activities were well matched giving the scope constraints. Interface was easy to use and worked on every device I used.

I liked the approach, which seems to emphasize that learning must be active. There is also an interesting discussion on the role that philosophy can play in schools. We need more of this.

This course opened my mind. The topics were very interesting and as a teacher is crucial to think about how deep our students are learning and how we can improve our practice to lead them through deep knowledge. I am very glad there will be a self-paced course in May. I am attending it again so that I can write all the assays I couldn't do it this time because of the short amount of time we had. Thanks to all the teachers that collaborated to such a valuable course

I HAVE LEARNED A LOT IN THIS COURSE. THE COURSE CONTENT HAS ALSO ANSWERED MOST OF THE QUESTIONS I HAVE HAD IN MY TEACHING CAREER OF 23 YEARS.I WILL BE A BETTER TEACHER GOING FORWARD FROM THE KNOWLEDGE I HAVE ACQUIRED IN THE COURSE. THIS BEING MY FIRST MOOC MY EXPERIENCE HAS BEEN AWESOME. I ENJOYED AND HAD FUN THROUGHOUT THE COURSE. I ALWAYS LOOKED FORWARD TO THE NEXT CONCEPT TO BE TAUGHT AND THE NEXT MODULE TO BE UPLOADED. I CANNOT REGRET ANY MINUTE I SPENT STUDYING THE COURSE AS IT WAS TIME WELL SPENT.LOOKING FORWARD TO IMPLEMENT THE KNOWLEDGE AND SHILL ACQUIRED IN THE COURSE.
