Professor Steve Joordens is a 3M National Teaching Fellow who has taught a wide range of online and in-person courses at the University of Toronto’s Department of Psychology. His passion is to help students develop skills like critical thinking, communication, creativity, and collaboration to better negotiate whatever challenges their futures hold.
In March of 2020 he created a free online course on Coursera.org entitled Mind Control: Understanding and Managing the Anxiety of COVID-19. Little Rain is an extension of that course, designed to apply those same lessons to everyday life beyond the pandemic. With hard won insights from educational and cognitive psychology, Professor Joordens wants to help you practice the skill of summoning relaxation to banish anxiety.
