Connecting Google certificates and university Specializations to help learners prepare for in-demand career fields

By Betty Vandenbosch, Chief Content Officer, Coursera

In a recent Coursera survey of university students from around the world, 86% of respondents said earning an industry microcredential would help them stand out to employers and secure jobs when they graduate – a testament to the importance of integrating industry-led learning into a degree curriculum. Historically, however, collaboration between industry and academia has been slow and piecemeal. 

We’re partnering with Google to announce a curated offering on Coursera to prepare learners for entry-level roles in specialized and growing industries, such as construction and sustainability project management, finance and public sector data analysis, and health IT. Learners on Coursera can now choose from five university-taught Specializations in high-growth industries, each designed to align with an existing Google Professional Certificate.

Leading dyslexia treatment isn’t a magic bullet, studies find, while other options show promise

More than 2 million children, nearly 3 out of 10 who receive special education services in the United States, have been diagnosed with dyslexia or a closely related reading disability. Getting the solution right is important, not only to help these children read and write, but to spend taxpayer funds on helping them efficiently.

Monica McHale-Small, director of education at the Learning Disabilities Association of America, and previously with the International Dyslexia Association, said there’s a “growing consensus” that Orton-Gillingham approaches aren’t necessarily what all children with dyslexia need.  “The research is there,” she said. “You can’t deny the findings of multiple studies.”

Visas are what fills the American financial system with vacationers, Silicon Valley with engineers and universities with overseas students. Visas are the State Department’s money cow: in FY2015 Consular issued near eleven million tourist, employee and scholar visas at a … Read more

Thus, IFETs would function as K-12 subsidies for a burgeoning instructional innovation: the charter college or its local equal. With assured funding for college students who’re at the poverty line, both the faculties and their students would stand a far larger likelihood of academic success than they do now.

Additionally, When a student constantly reveals up late to class, attention is drawn away from the instructor or assignment and toward the kid who has just arrived.
