This is a new MOOC due to run from 21st May to 22nd June 2012. It is aimed at new lecturers, people entering higher education teaching from other sectors, postgraduate students who teach and experienced lecturers who would like to update and share their knowledge and expertise.
Joe Rosa , from Oxford University and
Liz Lovegrove from Oxford Brookes University…..
….are both helping us with all matters technical.
Last week we had a full day F2F planning meeting in Oxford. The outcomes of our decisions are being captured on the development of this WordPress site which will serve as the ‘Homepage’ for the course. The site is still a work in progress, but if you are interested in this MOOC, you might like to visit it to find out more.
We will also be using a Moodle site for discussions and structuring the course, and a wiki for collaborative work. These will be linked to from the WordPress site, and of course, in true MOOC spirit, we are expecting activity and engagement to be distributed across the web according to individual participant preferences.
