Presented by Simon McIntyre, UNSW Art & Design and Dr Negin Mirriahi, LTU
In 2014 UNSW presented a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on 'Learning to Teach Online', jointly facilitated by UNSW Art & Design and the Learning and Teaching Unit. In this session, Simon Mcintyre and Negin Mirriahi will talk about how they approached the design and development of the MOOC to maximise the personalised experience for participants. They consider what they would change following implementation and evaluation, and how this might have lessons for the design of blended learning in UNSW programs. This will be of interest to anyone wondering how to scale personalised aspects of learning, using online activities, for large cohorts.
The Learning to Teach Online (LTTO) MOOC has been involved in innovative partnerships through Coursera, the hosting platform:
- UNSW was one of only 14 universities worldwide to be chosen (and the only Australian MOOC) in a partnership with the US Department of Education (LTTO MOOC chosen to be part of continuing education accreditation for teachers http://blog.coursera.org/post/103050170952/president-obama-supports-free-two-year-coursera)
