MOOCs for Teachers: Coursera Offers Online Teacher Training Program | MindShift

MOOCs for Teachers: Coursera Offers Online Teacher Training Program | MindShift | Education & Technology | Scoop.it

Berry supports the idea of MOOCs for professional development in theory because he’d like to see teachers be able to choose and direct their own learning. But he thinks success hinges on skilled virtual facilitators who both know the subject matter and how to foster high quality discussion and communication online in order to make it work well.

The Kit itself is looking a bit outdated (2011) but it's an interesting framework.
