How do people learn?  What teaching strategies are most effective?  Can solar content be successfully taught online?  

These are just a few of the questions participants will be able to answer after taking this course. Designed so participants can apply best practices to help students learn solar content, the course also helps instructors teach solar content effectively in both online and traditional settings. 

The course has three modules:  (1) What is effective instruction? (2) How do you teach solar online?  (3) What competencies does an effective solar instructor have?

Although the course is non-graded, quizzes or other self-graded assessment exercises are provided to give learners an opportunity to gauge their learning.  Expert feedback is provided for all exercises and quizzes.
