Animal Behaviour and Welfare - The University of Edinburgh

5.0 22/03/2017
What I would highlight: I finished the Animal Behaviour and Welfare course with Coursera. The course design was very intuitive, easy to follow and take in. I was very much impressed with the materials provided, quizzes, samples and videos. There are "quizzes" after lectures, they reinforce knowledge and ask for most advanced concepts from the videos. I have used other learning platforms, and Coursera is by far the best one I found.

What I would highlight: My wife and I took two classes on Coursera together:Business Growth Strategy. We learned a lot. I am no longer totally lost when my colleagues talks about business strategies. I liked how easy it was to watch the lectures together. We could also compete to see who got the best grades on the quizzes and suchlike. The interface was fairly intuitive, especially if you've taken other online courses before or edited/used Wikipedia. All in all, it was a very positive, if challenging, experience and one that I would recommend to anyone looking to further their knowledge. (Also there are paid tracks if you want certification.)

5.0 11/08/2013
What I would highlight: I loved the fact that it was taught by Yale Professor Paul Bloom, author of 'Just Babies'. There were occasionally other instructors/presenters, but he was the main one. He was so smart, so human, so engaging -- and he was the big attraction in my taking the course. I'm working at a doctoral level and this course was NOT dumbed down for being online and having no pre-requisites. It was pitched at a masters level, and for that reason, I could really sink my teeth into it. As well, it was breaking new ground in Psychology, and this made it thrilling. I also really appreciated that it had boundaries and approachable requirements. You didn't just audit this course. There were weekly exams (which had a deadline, and you lost marks for tardiness) and in order to get your certificate of completion you had do them and score reasonably well. Although at 55, I'm long past competing for grades... it really gave me focus, and ensured that I applied myself and learned the material. It also kept the 'players' off the board, and kept non-working grandstanders from taking up question time. I loved the live tutorials in which Prof Bloom would address questions. So that it didn't become a free-for-all, questions had to be submitted in writing in advance, and he would choose which ones to answer. In a more open way, there was a student discussion forum, which allowed me to connect with other students and air ideas, questions, musings, etc. It was one of the most fabulous courses I have ever taken, on- or off-line -- well organised, beautifully presented, cutting edge. I learned a great deal, enjoyable, reflectively, productively, from the comfort of my own home.
What could be improved: Actually, unusually for me, there was nothing I disliked -- nor was there anything I would change. I'm usually quite critical, and I have no criticisms of this course.

Course programme

This course is the last course of the a Specialization on Leadership called “Inspirational Leadership: Leading with Sense”, so you may want to take the courses “Building Your Leadership Skills” and “Giving Sense to your Leadership Experience” prior of taking this course. In this course you’ll get the opportunity to apply the skills learned in the first two courses of the “Inspirational Leadership: Leading with Sense” as an individual to a group setting. The group could not only be an organization such as a company or a team in a company, but also a private group such as your family or an association. Specifically, you’ll apply the 4 steps of The Savoir-Relier protocol to your group: 1. defining the group identity by working on the group self-awareness, 2. creating quality relationships within the group, 3. working on resilience for the group to then be able to overcome difficult situation and 4. Making the organization grow by creating sense and meaning. So if you want your group to grow as a successful leader in its fields, if you want to find your identity as a group and create shared values for it, or if you want your group to become more resilient in face of change and crisis, this course is made for you! Finally, at the end of the course, you would have build sense for your group in order to be more efficient. Using real-life cases you will see how the genuine, generous and generative characteristics apply to the development of successful organizations. For example, you will apply the Relational Circuit to recruit effectively, or the Self-Portrait and Conversation exercises to create team cohesion and resilience to overcome crises and interpersonal conflicts. You will be able to form trustworthy relationships in spite of diverging or different views, and you will grow respect in your environment where sense will be a driver for you and your surrounding. Leaders from different organizations, will share with you their insights about how they have applied the Savoir-Relier approach to their company and how it has made the company more resilience and competitive.Online learning plays a key role in lifelong learning. In fact, a recent report by the United States Department of Education found that "the courses that include online education (either completely virtual or blended learning) produce, on average, much stronger learning outcomes for students courses They are conducted exclusively in person. Based on an approach developed by educational psychologist Benjamin Bloom, the mastery learning helps students to fully understand a subject before moving on to a more advanced. In Coursera, usually we give an answer immediately to the concepts that the student does not understand feedback. In many cases, we offer random versions of assessments for the student to return to school and retrying until mastered the concept.
