To MOOC, or Not to MOOC

Thursday, October 17 | 2:30PM–3:20PM | Meeting Room 209A/B
Session Type: Professional Development
As the topic of MOOCs is becoming more prevalent in education, institutions are tasked with understanding how this paradigm could or should impact their teaching and learning initiatives. Through a panel discussion, representatives from institutions will share why they are embracing MOOCs and how they are approaching the MOOC "experiment" in strategic and tactical ways.

Understand how and why institutions are incorporating MOOCs and large courses into their strategic initiatives | Identify resources that can support institutions' MOOC-related initiatives | Discuss the needs, challenges, and best practices of supporting large courses with technology
