MASSIVE OPEN ONLINE COURSES (MOOCs)
Date: Thursday 14th May 2015
Time: 10.00am – 3.00pm
Venue: Sheffield Hallam University, Cantor Building, Room 9135.
Title: ‘I did a MOOC, now what?’ – Exploring credit and recognition approaches for MOOCs.
MOOCs are increasingly being viewed not just as isolated pockets of flexible learning but as a means of providing flexible pathways into further study. This shift raises some challenges around the quality of the learning experience, evidence of engagement and the award of credit.
This workshop will be of interest for those across the sector working in the development and delivery of MOOCs as well as those with responsibility for the assurance of quality and standards and the award of credit. This workshop will draw on the experiences of a recent MOOC pilot at Sheffield Hallam University (LINK) which adopted an innovative approach to addressing these challenges resulting in a significant number of participants undertaking further study. This interactive workshop will share the outcomes of the evaluation of the MOOC and will provide the opportunity to discuss and explore solutions to these challenges.
