En résumé

This MOOC is designed principally for practicing teachers who are wondering exactly how they can incorporate teaching and assessment of 21st century skills into their classrooms, labs or workshops. It will also be useful to trainee teachers, school leaders, teacher educators and curriculum and assessment specialists, providing them with an understanding of the challenges associated with teaching and assessment of 21st century skills. This course explains the social and cognitive skills that are known as 21st century skills. It reviews how they can be represented in the curriculum, in terms of developmental progressions. It also explores how teachers can recognise these skills in students, how the level of skill of a learner can be assessed, and then how learners can be supported to develop their skill. In this course we work through two detailed examples of 21st century skills. The first is collaborative problem solving, a 21st century skill which combines the capacities of collaboration, problem solving, critical thinking and communication. The second skill is a meta-cognitive skill of knowing how to learn in a MOOC. In each example, you will explore how to understand the nature of each skill from a teaching perspective, how to teach it, and how to assess it. These two examples show how any 21st century skill can be tackled in the classroom. The approach to teaching and assessment in this course derives from the application of a developmental, evidence-based, clinical approach to teaching practice. The course provides a mix of theory and practice, of thinking and doing, and opportunities to share ideas, experience and resources with other participants. Join Emeritus Professor Patrick Griffin and the team from the Assessment Research Centre, University of Melbourne in a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on the Assessment and Teaching of 21st Century Skills, hosted on Coursera.

Le programme

  • Week 1 - Why do we need 21st century skills, what are they?
    During our introduction week, we provide two Modules. Module 1 provides an overview of the course, and how assessment in it is structured. We have introduced some developmental aspects in our approach to assessment, which complements the summative approach use...
  • Week 2 - How to teach and assess Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS) as an example of a C21 skill
    In Module 3 we introduce collaborative problem solving (CPS), an example of a complex and relevant 21st century skill. We will explain the nature of CPS, describing in depth the underlying competencies involved in this skill. We will explain how we can take a ...
  • Week 3 - Assessing and reporting on the development of collaborative problem solving skills
    This week, in Module 4, you will be reviewing aspects of assessing students’ collaborative problem solving skills using a developmental approach. You will review a video of ICT tasks that the ATC21S team have created; and you will be prompted to think of ways...
  • Week 4 - Developmental teaching of collaborative problem solving
    In Week 4, Module 5 we discuss how individual and group differences can be managed in teaching CPS. We conduct interviews with a teacher, school leader and researcher on implementing the assessment and teaching of 21st century skills in schools. We also discus...
  • Week 5 - Knowing how to learn in a MOOC: another example of a C21 skill
    This week, in Module 6 we explore a further example of a C21 skill, and one that has particular relevance to participants in this course: the skill of knowing how to learn in a MOOC. We review the nature of MOOCs as a teaching environment, and why a MOOC dema...
  • Week 6 - Reflection and looking forward
    In this final week in Module 8, we ask you to reflect on your learning in the course, and particularly on the use of progressions and developmental thinking in the way C21 skills are taught and assessed. If you submitted an Assignment in Week 5, you will asses...

I learned a lot in this course. It focuses on the 21st century skills of collaborative problem solving and knowing how to learn in a MOOC, which were two aspects of education research I had never explored. The assignment (developing a teaching activity to promote collaborative problem solving skills) was very engaging, and I found that overall the course was a good mix between theory and practice. The intended audience for the course is really classroom teachers, which I personally am not, but I still found it very interesting.

I liked the idea of CPS, and I'm glad I've learned it. But otherwise the course was pretty tedious, and almost all the information was hollow, and I couldn't help but think about the applause lights consept. So in my opinion it could be just one week of CPS, and nothing more.

Very helpful. Hope to be able to apply many of these in my own teaching.I would, however, have enjoyed to see more of the concepts in action - classroom.

This is one of the most informative and useful course that I had so far. I have actually started using this in teaching my kids! Must learn for all educators!

A MOOC with great elements to improve and reinforce our teaching work and to support our students in the development of their skills of the 21st century. Masterfully guided by Patrick Griffin, Esther Care and research team from the University of Melbourne, Australia.
