Curry School dean, Bob Pianta, recently spoke with Education Week writer Sean Cavanagh for his article, “MOOCs Provider in Higher Ed. Targets K-12 Teacher PD.” The MOOC Curry will be offering via Coursera, Effective Classroom Interactions: Supporting Young Children’s Development, will be offered beginning in October.
“This is an opportunity for us to innovate,” Mr. Pianta said. “It’s a good idea for us to be experimenting in this way. ...We think it’s going to help us go out there to a much broader audience.”
