Last year the University of Exeter launched its first MOOC, Climate Change Challenges and Solutions. Come along to this ASPIRE seminar to discuss how pedagogies from mass online learners can be modified or applied to teaching that takes place on campus.
In the first run of the course, over 16,000 participants signed up. Learning involved delivery through videos, reading, discussion, collaboration, assessment and reflection. Damien led the production of the MOOC along with Tim Lenton & E-Learning; in this seminar he will discuss how he has modified his teaching as a result of the MOOC experience. Topics discussed will include:
- Online delivery (& Flipping the Classroom);
- Online discussion and collaboration;
- Peer learning;
- Online delivery;
As well as discussing pedagogies adapted from the MOOC approach, the seminar includes a discussion on flipping the classroom. This pedagogy involves participants engaging in material before class. Therefore, Damien has prepared some pre-seminar material for you to think about in advance. Please follow this link http://flip.it/ECEos for the material and instructions.
Everyone welcome, no need to book! Please ensure you are on the lookout for the 2014-2015 seminar programme.
