MOOCOW Seven Futures of American Education v2.0 (7FsMOOCow): Perspectives, Strategies, PlansJanuary 17 - February 22, 2014Presenters; Steve Gilbert and John SenerRegister HereDescriptionSeven Futures of American Education (7F) is a somewhat connectivist, hypothetically Massive Open Online Course or whatever (MOOCOW) designed to help those who work in higher education (faculty, administrators, other professional staff) increase their ability to create positive educational change by using the ideas in Seven Futures.Perspectives -- This MOOCOW will present the Seven Futures perspective on improving educational quality. Participants will discuss these perspectives and compare them with their own personal perspectives. Participants will also identify where they stand on committing to quality improvement, and identify one or more issues they face in trying to improve educational quality.Strategies -- 7F will present and discuss a wide array of strategies for re-empowering learning and teaching, revitalizing the educational enterprise, and using online learning to improve education. Participants will select one or more quality improvement strategies that address their self-identified issues, based on a combination of Seven Futures and personal perspectives.Plans -- The course will enable participants to create the outline for an action plan for implementing one or more quality improvement strategies in their course, program, or institution.This MOOCOW is based the book The Seven Futures of American Education: Improving Learning & Teaching in a Screen-Captured World by John Sener. We encourage participants to purchase a copy of the book to help prepare, but participants can take this course without having or using the book. This MOOCOW will also offer multiple paths for participation, including a well-sequenced set of guided learning activities (“Guided Path”), a supported DIY (“Design-It-Yourself”) option, and an unsupported DIY (“Do-It-Yourself”) option.Seven Futures MOOCOW ScheduleComing Soon
