The core science facts you have accumulated as a learner plus the new knowledge you will gather from this course will provide you with the tools to be able to recognize and explain most of the fundamental behavior that occurs in the world around you. In fact, you actually continually have to evaluate scientific claims in this world about things that vary drastically from medical devices to mouth wash. In this course, you will take a deep dive into discovering why a scientific claim, such as a superpower is good or bad science. We will discuss scientific claims that are made, such as superheroes and their superpowers, which have both good and bad examples of physics, chemistry and biology at work, and determine if they are scientifically sound. For the cost of an app, unlock the pro-version of the course. Access hours more video lectures from Super Professor Mike Dennin, additional forums, quizzes, and design your own superhero tested against the criteria - are superheroes really science fact or fiction? This course is a part of the Science Fiction/Science Fact series. Each course can be taken independently or sequentially. The complete series includes... Science Fiction / Science Fact: Questions and Answers (January) Science Fiction / Science Fact: Predictions and Math (February) Science Fiction / Science Fact: Superheros and Physics (March)

As an adult trainer, are you sick of the "Death by Powerpoint" style? Are you thinking of using different ways to engage your learners? Do you toss and turn at night wondering if your materials have been effective and useful for your learners? Enroll in this short course to pick up some tips on using a range of instructional methods to engage your adult learners and make their learning relevant and meaningful. As a needs-based course, we will first determine the type of program you are currently or will be facilitating, and then recommend a range of instructional methods that are relevant to your learners and the learning outcomes for the program. With the help of video resources, short notes, formative quizzes, and forum discussions, you will engage with the learning materials both individually and with a community of like-minded practitioners. Hear from experts how they adapt these instructional methods for their own facilitation purposes, and start or join conversations to discuss these methods at greater length and depth. This course is for both new and experienced trainers. As the course design is based on your needs as a trainer, there is no need for you to work through everything, only what you deem relevant to you. This will take about a week. However, if you feel that you want to find out about instructional methods that are not immediately relevant to you now, you are most welcome to explore the rest of the course. This will take approximately three more weeks. Duration to complete the course: 1-3 weeks Certification for completing the course: None Prerequisites: None Requirements for participation: None Format: Self-paced (learn at your own pace) Instructor feedback: No

To many adult educators, reflective practice is a crucial skill in their continuing professional development. However, the process of doing it effectively is never easy as Brookfield (1998) pointed out in noting that "to some extent, we are all prisoners trapped within the perceptual frameworks that determine how we view our experiences…" Our course is for adult educators or teachers who are interested in using a structured method to examine their own teaching/training practices. Through using four perspectives better known as Brookfield's Four Reflective Lens, this course attempts to address the limitations of our perspectives in the reflection process.
