This event is recommended for: Graduate Students; Postdocs/Fellows.

This 9-week online course examines, in more depth, the topics introduced in the 2-hour workshop, as well as exploring subjects such as inquiry-based science, online learning, cultural awareness and diversity, assessments of learning environments, active learning and expert learners. Approached from a cognitive science perspective this course encourages individual participation and emphasizes team learning, group discussion, and home-based investigation.

The structure of this course utilizes an online learning platform to both accommodate NIH trainees at all campus locations and provide a hands on utilization of technology and online learning resources that are being heavily integrated into undergraduate, and in some cases graduate, education at the university level. Participants who complete the required assignments and additional course requirements are awarded a certificate of training.

Internet access is the only requirement for participation in this course. With the exception of one webinar participation requirement the majority of the course has no scheduled meeting times.
