As Donald Trump puts his action plan for the first 100 days as president into play, hundreds of people are enrolling in a new University of Pennsylvania School of Social Policy & Practice massive open online learning course that empowers them to create a list of priorities of their own for the new administration.
“Ultimately, you have to decide for yourself what issues are most important to you. That’s part of what democracy is,” said SP2 Dean John L. Jackson Jr.
Offered on edX, the new self-paced free online course, “Top 10 Social Issues for the President’s First 100 Days,” launched January 20, Inauguration Day and runs through May 1.
Participants are expected to complete a series of assignments, create their own learning plans, examine readings and materials that will be continually updated and engage with peers in discussion, all remotely.
Online learners will gain access to research from Penn SP2’s renowned faculty and are challenged to think about how the nation should envision communities and prioritize the issues that directly impact them.
Enrollment for the new online course, “Top 10 Social Issues for the President’s First 100 Days” is available at https://www.edx.org/course/top-10-social-issues-presidents-first-pennx-top10x#
