These activities can be helpful (and fun!) at the start of the year to help your team get to know each other. They can also be used throughout the year as warm-up activities, or when your team needs a break. If your team is struggling to work together effectively, or needs a morale or energy boost, try out some of these activities!

MOOCS, Online Learning, and the Wrong Conversation

MOOCS, Online Learning, and the Wrong Conversation | Higher Education and more... | Scoop.it

"The fact that MOOCS and online courses have sparked new conversations on your campus about teaching and learning is a terrific development. We should be grateful whenever attention is paid to teaching. The problem is that neither MOOCS or online courses are, in themselves, a strategy to meet the challenges we all face in higher ed. MOOCS and online courses are a means, not an end, and should be understood as such. The real conversation that you should be having on campus is about your institutions' goals around teaching and learning."

Danielle M. Villegas's curator insight, January 4, 2013 2:57 PM

This is definitely an important conversation to have in the correct way. I've been the recipient of an online education through a MOOC used effectively. Just like any course going from classroom to online, or for that matter going from e-learning to m-learning, careful thought has to be done to ensure that content is not lost, and that an essential part of learning--interaction--is included. It's a different dynamic than in a classroom, thus how a MOOC is used should be planned out accordingly.
