Peurach’s MOOC featured on CNN for rollout in the Philippines


One of the School of Education MOOCs—which stands for Massive Open Online Course—was featured on CNN Philippines. Professor Don Peurach is the lead developer and one of the instructors of the MOOC titled “Leading Ambitious Teaching and Learning.” Through a program sponsored by the U.S. embassy, over 700 learners in the Philippines completed the course, learning how to strengthen educational innovations.

Professor Peurach believes that teachers need to deliberately construct learning environments and experiences in classrooms that resemble the real world as they also set high expectations for students. “‘Leading Ambitious Teaching and Learning’ has imparted in the minds and hearts of teachers the need to provide high learning expectations,” said student Renz Marion Gavino. 

The television clip can be viewed on the SOE Facebook page.
