Empowering! Raises the art of teaching to a new, much higher, yet accessible level. It also provides much needed hope for the "slow" learner.

Thank you so much for a fantastic course! I have learned so much that I can now implement in the training that I present.

In particular I'd like to comment on the Honours assignments - these really are active learning in action! I thought I knew the content (sound familiar?) only to discover that there were still some details that I needed to pin down.

I've had some positive feedback from my learners too about the recall exercises - they were similarly able to identify gaps in their knowledge when they had to write down what they could remember about the topics they'd just been trained on.

I hope the next series is on the way soon - I can't wait!

You know the course is exceptionally valuable when the 3 instructors explain concepts in a simple and easy manner, structuring their videos to be short and including their own thoughts and puns and using metaphors. They use every possible opportunity to provoke our thinking and memory, strengthening our neuron links every time we do the quiz or watch a new video. It feels like a long journey, but a short course that's easy to remember and recall. I will probably rewatch it some time again in the future to reconfirm my links with the wisdom being discussed here!

Excelente curso, no solo para enseñar mejor sino para aprender mejor. La combinación de experiencia de los instructores hace que el material sea increíblemente valioso y el curso en sí mismo está diseñado con los métodos que están enseñando. Lo recomiendo a cualquier persona interesada en el aprendizaje o enseñanza. No hay necesidad de conocimiento previo pues todo es explicado de manera muy sencilla sin perder la calidad.

Totally love the course and inspired to buy the book. Great reinforcement of the concepts that I learned back during my pre-service training for teaching, accompanied with a more coherent framework of evidence from neuroscience. The instructors also made the content engaging through the ways they deliver the presentations and the modelling of strategies that they were advocating for in the course. Great for all educators!

Another excelent course from these amazing people that help us, teachers and instructors in all levels, understand and take advantage of the breakthroughs in neuroscience to put it to work in our classrooms. Thank you very much for this incredible learning experience Beth, Barb, Terry and all your team that makes it possible for the whole world to have access to this magnificent educational path.

I think one of the best course on teaching on Coursera. It helped me reflected on my own learning methods during early years and confirmed lots of my understanding on what makes a good student and good teacher too! Definitely recommend it to anyone interested in teaching, either as teachers or as parents who are keen on helping children learning better.

T​his is an amazing course. There are many great insights into how students learn. I teach in a dental school, and have picked up a number of ideas on how to improve my teaching. The instructors walk the talk. They provide practical ideas, but they are also teaching by example throughout the course. Thank you for a great course.

This course reinforced many of the concepts presented in Barb's "Learning how to learn" MOOC and clicked with me on a personal and professional level. This course presented complex topics in a very effective manner and it is definitely time to start working with Direct Instruction across all grade levels and disciplines.

This course was fantastic. It has given me some great insight into how our brains work and how kids learn. I am feeling very inspired heading back to school. I had not read the book but during this course I did purchase it as I was so impressed with what I was learning! Thanks everyone!

This course really helped me rethink the structure of my teaching and how to make it work better for all my students. There are some really great ideas and practical tips to get you started too. Highly recommended if you are serious about developing your teaching (and learning) skills!

This is a unique class on education, examining not only didactic technique but the biological rationale for understanding varying teaching methods. Moreover, I really enjoyed the instructors, who are quirky and charismatic. It's my favorite education class that I've taken.
