After discussing innovation and change in the online learning context, participants will consider ways in which MOOCs or other teaching and learning online innovations could be implemented at their institutions.

Tuesday's agenda will include
* Exploring the MOOC's evolution and how the various models address student needs
* Considering what can be transferred from what we know of the online learning environment
  to the MOOC learning model and vice versa
* Understanding what can be learned from large-scale innovations through research and
