TOEP has been given a shoutout in the HumanMOOC which began today!
The MOOC itself is extremely well constructed. There is a lot of synergy with TOEP. The MOOC content is also very relevant to our work in QbD. A pre-course Hangout was provided yesterday by George Siemens, the father of connectivist learning theory and the cMOOC.
Humanizing Online Instruction: Building a Community of Inquiry is a 4-week Micro-MOOC made available on the Canvas Open Network. This course is designed to prepare online instructors who teach college and university courses to be able to increase instructor, social, and cognitive presence in their online courses. Each of the weekly modules contains annotated research related to the Community of Inquiry (CoI) framework, grounding the application-based activities in theory. Engagement in this networked community of practice is designed to stimulate the process of inquiry and collaboration among educators. Participants will explore emerging technologies and create digital assets that they can employ in their own instruction.
The course will include live sessions featuring George Siemens, Kate Bowles, Alec Couros, and many others. For more information about the course, visit humanmooc.com, and to sign up, visit canvas.net. Hope to see you there!
