Anne Whaits's curator insight, February 15, 2013 10:25 AM

In the context of MOOCs and online learning, Stephen Downes describes the role of teacher as the LEARNER (collector, connector, curator, artist, sharer, scientist), the DESIGNER (programmer,alchemist, convenor), the COACH (salesperson, agitator, mentor, co-ordinator, facilitator, conversationalist, tech support) and the EXPERT (lecturer, moderator, demonstrator, broadcaster, theoriser, evaluator, beaurocrat). Love it!

Peter B. Sloep's curator insight, February 15, 2013 10:31 AM
