  • #EDENChat: MOOC strategies in European higher education

    2018-03-21 @ 20:00 - 21:00

    MOOC development and innovation in Europe is growing steadily and has overtaken that of North America and many European institutions are developing MOOCs on local or regional platforms rather than via the major consortia. There is also a growing level of collaboration between European institutions and with external partners. These are some of the conclusions of a major survey and report from 2017, MOOC strategies of European Institutions (EADTU/MOONLITE 2017). A new survey is currently in progress and this week’s #EDENChat will discuss the present status of MOOC development in Europe and the challenges ahead. The session will be led by Alastair Creelman, from Linnaeus University, Sweden, and will take place on 21 March, 2018 at 20:00.

    Stretching the boundaries remains our focus

    The demand for people with new, enhanced skills is growing. Pressure is on all players of the online education community to keep up with new learning solutions, and better supply the skills currently demanded by growing economies.

    Digital credentials and open badges are the new currencies which are beginning to transform the economic models in education. Social and economic tensions continue to raise the issues of scalability, the micro-credentialling of education, training and skill development processes.

    Micro, meso and macro aspects provide an interesting range of lenses for considering the problem. Navigating these dimensions are the reshaping of digital pedagogy and online instructional design; and social elements including digital societal mechanisms and the position of the individual in our new era. We have need of systematic awareness and research in the critical are of sustainable socio-cultural aspects as they relate to learning. Read more…
