The corridor of uncertainty: MOOCs for teacher development | Libraries and education futures | Scoop.it

Traditionally teachers seldom get a chance to watch each other and share experience. Teaching has been an individualistic rather than collective career where you work out your own strategies, create your own courses and learn from your own mistakes.
