How to teach others, What you need to know.
This three part course will give you a good overview of pedagogy methods, theories, tools and practical tips regarding teaching others, in real life or on the web.
The three courses will have different types of orientations and projects, but will also be closely connected with each other and have projects that will help you evolve as a teacher. I must emphasize that you will have the best experience and progression if you take the courses in chronological order.
