An overview of the 5 courses offered for free by Teachers Without Borders. For teachers who do not wish to earn the Certificate of Teaching Mastery, Courses 1 - 4 areavailable to be taken as separate, "stand-alone" courses. Given the distinct nature and focus of each course, a teacher may choose to take only 1or 2 courses, 3 or 4 as needed to support the work that they are doing in their classsroom. This kind of course flexibility allows teachers to choose whatthey need and to enter any course at any time.

Outline of certificate of teaching mastery

The Certificate of Teaching Mastery is made up of 5 distinct online courses that are practical, interactive, and oriented foreducators who teach children ages 5 to 18. They are as follows:

Course 1: Education for the New Millennium

Course 2: Teaching Methods

Course 3: Assessment Practices

Course 4: Culture for Understanding

Course 5: Educating for Civil Societies

These courses can be taken in any order, and upon successful completion of all 5 courses, a teacher earns a Teachers WithoutBorders Certificate of Teaching Mastery .

Courses can be taken individually

For teachers who do not wish to earn the Certificate of Teaching Mastery , Courses 1 - 4 are available to be taken as separate, "stand-alone" courses. Given thedistinct nature and focus of each course, a teacher may choose to take only 1 or 2 courses, 3 or 4 as needed to support the work that they are doing in theirclasssroom. This kind of course flexibility allows teachers to choose what they need and to enter any course at any time.

Twb learning cafe

Each course has access to our TWB Learning Cafe - an interactive cyperspace where teachers can meet; gain practical tips for their classrooms; discussideas; share assignments; and see examples of "what works" from colleagues around the world. We are in the process of creating new forms of collaboration and will update this section so that you can access both information and a global teacher community with ease.

A closer look

what about nanotechnology for water purification
RAW Reply
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
