Teaching has always been more of a vocation than a profession. Every responsible citizen of the world was once moulded by a good teacher. It takes a special skill to impart knowledge to another person, be it a child or an adult. That is what makes teaching an art—knowing what level your learners are at, and presenting the material to them in a way they will not only grasp and remember, but be able to make practical use of. 

This is the first teacher training MOOC on edX.

This is a past/archived course. At this time, you can only explore this course in a self-paced fashion. Certain features of this course may not be active, but many people enjoy watching the videos and working with the materials. Make sure to check for reruns of this course.


This three-week teacher training course has a practical edge, and you will:

  • Be able to apply what you learn here to any classroom you will be in and with a diverse range of students.
  • Explore learning theories and different teaching strategies to suit different types of students.
  • Cover topics covered in the course including types of learners, teacher-centred and student-centred learning, lesson design, how people learn, what happens in the brain when we learn, and how to get students involved in assessment.
  • By the end of the course, have a structured approach towards any lesson you take with any class of students.
  • Be able to organize your thoughts, teaching, and even learning activities for your students.




A brief introduction to teaching for aspiring and beginning teachers. This teacher training course will put you in the students’ shoes and help you discover the art of teaching vis-à-vis your own learning experience.
