UNC-Chapel Hill launched its first massive open online course (MOOC) on the Coursera platform on September 2. Four additional UNC Coursera courses are planned to open in the coming year. In order to keep faculty informed about this new initiative, an open forum is being held for faculty members in the Pleasants Room of Wilson Library on Friday, September 27, from noon to 1:30 pm.
Provost Jim Dean and Carol Tresolini, Vice Provost for Academic Initiatives, will provide an overview of the University’s MOOC initiative; members of the development team will share details of the course creation process; and a panel of current MOOC faculty will share their experiences with developing and teaching MOOCS. Attending faculty will have an opportunity to ask questions in an open-mic period at the end of the session.
For more information, please contact Laurie Cochenour, CFE E-Learning Policy Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (919) 966-5400.
