Free online courses from Microsoft Education

Microsoft is committed to empowering every learner on the planet to achieve more.

We know that educators seek to improve learning outcomes through profoundly student-centered approaches which develop skills critical for the future. We know that leaders value insights and evidence of effective practice which improve and increase instruction time.

As schools look to transform and modernize education, access to contemporary professional learning experiences is crucial. We worked closely with edX to create five online courses to help school principals, headmasters, superintendents and system leaders create more effective learning experiences by advancing innovation and transformation.

Microsoft understands the importance of strong, inspired school leadership for sustainable improvement. These courses provide skills and resources for leaders who are starting a school or system transformation journey and include latest research, and contemporary learning design from leading universities.

The innovative learning content is designed to be embedded in practice and recommended to be best undertaken by teams as part of ongoing professional learning.
