MOOC This, MOOC That – What’s Academia to Do

by Hershel Miller on June 11, 2012

When you step out on your doorstep and find a MOOC article on the cover of your local paper, you know it’s time to start thinking about their potential adoption.

Institutions like Princeton, Penn, Michigan, Stanford University and the University of California at Berkeley have all joined the MOOC train.

So what does this trend mean for you, your faculty and your campus?

That’s a tough question, especially when we are still developing common definitions for a MOOC program.

Join us, Tuesday, June 26 at 11:00 am CT for A Practical Response to Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs).

Casey Green of the Campus Computing Project will moderate our online learning panel with Pamela A. Havice, PhD. Associate Professor at Clemson University and Sean Brown, Vice President Education at Sonic Foundry.

Our panel will discuss:

  • Where do MOOCs fit in the larger online learning ecosystem?
  • What impact will MOOCs, flipped and hybrid classes have on traditional, synchronous face to face education?
  • Can the MOOC model help unlock the online teaching potential for every instructor on your campus right now?
  • How does online instruction and video knowledge fit into the personal learning environment of your existing students? And how will it be captured, distributed and delivered in a post-MOOC world?

Here’s that link again to register for A Practical Response to Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCS).
