In my role as Director of Online Media at Relay GSE, in 2013, I collaborated with Dave Levin, founder of KIPP Schools, and Dan Konecky, to build Relay GSE’s first MOOC: Teaching Character and Creating Positive Classrooms. We delved into the science of character, interviewing leading researchers in the field, and then explored video of classroom teachers’s character lessons. We’ve since run the course 4 times on Coursera’s platform, with over 50,000 students enrolled.
