Course Work for Teachers

Barbara Greenstone shares the following:

You may want to share these with teachers. The courses from FutureLearn are free, but you can upgrade for a small sum (usually $70 or $80). The free ones allow you access to all the materials for the duration of the course plus 14 days. If you upgrade you have unlimited access and you get a certificate. This is where I found that excellent Dylan Wiliam’s assessment course that I just finished. And, it’s a British company so all the instructors sound really smart.
