Interesting insight on the philosophy of teaching.

Leslie Reid's comment, August 11, 2013 7:44 PM
An interesting article that explores one of the great misconceptions about teaching: is it art or science? And helps illustrate that there is a science behind the practice of teaching, but professors need the ability to adapt them in unique and creative ways to the classroom.

"Massive Open Online Courses are the hot topic in distance education, not only because the 2013 Horizon Report named MOOCs as one of the emerging technologies to have an effect on higher education, but also because many institutions offer them now.

 

However, when most people hear about MOOCs, they think of the “big three” providers — Coursera, Udacity and edX (Havardx and MITx), all of them American platforms. Most people are not aware that the first MOOCs were developed by Canadian teachers, George Siemens and Stephen Downes. Nor do most people know that many more MOOCs are available from around the world.

 

Well, let me be your guide as we take a grand tour to discover the many MOOC options beyond the best-known platforms in the U.S. It’s going to be a long journey, taking at least three posts. By the end of it, we’ll have put the “distance” in distance education. Don’t forget to bring your phrase books along — or make sure Google Translate is active on your browser — because, while most are in English, many of them will be in the local language.
