This will be a brief but an important post. You may have heard of Coursera. It is an education platform that “partners with top universities and organizations worldwide to offer courses online for anyone to take, for free.” And this is no small thing. Just to give you an idea of their power, I want to draw your attention to a program that was brought to my attention by my friend and colleague, Dr. Stephen Perle, of the University of Bridgeport College of Chiropractic. The specific course he told me about is entitled “Instructional Methods in Health Professions Education.” It will be offered 4 times in the next year, with the next session beginning in February of 2015.
