Teaching Character


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.
