Professional Certificate in
Teaching 21st Century Skills in College Courses

What you will learn

  • Synthesize and apply your new knowledge by transforming a curricular artifact of your own, whether it be an entire course syllabus or a lesson plan or activity for a single class.
  • Understand key principles of instructional design and learning theory — with emphasis on the concept of “skills as cultural models” — and how to structure a course syllabus and/or individual lesson plans to emphasize the four skills.
  • Develop a working knowledge of and critical outlook on the theories and arguments behind 21st-century skills and graduate employability.
  • Develop an appreciation for the ways that culture, class and other forms of student identity and experience impact how students define and use particular skills — and implications of this for your own classroom teaching.
  • Understand the theory and research supporting each of the four skills and the different ways they can be taught in colleges, universities and adult education settings.
