Learning Technology Group: MOOCs: A Conversation

Time: 12/6/2012 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Location: Miller Hall 56

Members of our campus community are welcome to join the "Learning Technology Group" monthly discussion aimed at increasing our campus-wide understanding and use of technology as a teaching tool. All Western faculty, staff, and interested students are welcome to attend.

What is a MOOC (Massively Open Online Course)? What are they good for and what does this have to do with us in higher education? During this session, we will explore these questions and discuss the possibilities and challenges this movement in education presents.

The Learning Technology Group at Western is an ongoing collaboration of Academic Technology and User Services, working with the Center for Instructional Innovation and Assessment, to engage faculty in implementing and evaluating new technologies for teaching.
