    The schMOOC/MOOCOW* (Massive Open Online Course Or Whatever) will explore John Sener's book "The Seven Futures of American Education: Improving Learning & Teaching in a Screen-Captured World."

    The series will include these participation options ("paths"):

    • guided sequence to enable participants to create an action plan for implementing one or more quality improvement strategies in their course, program, or institution.
    • “do-it-yourself” (DIY)   approach which allows participants to learn what they wish by defining their own objectives and using available resources (both inside and outside the course) to attain them as desired.

    Course Schedule:

    The series will also model several of the key strategies described in Seven Futures, including:
    • learner-generated content (create an action plan and other content that you can use),
    • event-anchored learning (participate in TLT Group's FridayLive! synchronous events to S‘anchor’ course activities), and
    • impact assessment (opportunities to reflect on what you’re learning, mine insights, and assess their impact on you, your students, your colleagues...).

    NOTE:  *a “schMOOC/MOOCOW” is our version of a MOOC (Massively Open Online Course):
    schMOOC”  = “somewhat connectivist, hypothetically Massive Open Online Course” --
    “somewhat connectivist” because the course offers DIY and other connectivist options but also offers more structure than a typical cMOOC. “hypothetically” Massive because the course is open to all but not likely to be huge.

    Encourage. Enable. Engage.
