Pierre's curator insight, June 15, 4:29 AM

Ik vrees dat de universiteiten nog erg denken vanuit het idee "als wij het niet accrediteren dan is het waardeloos" en het is maar de vraag of dat zo belangrijk gaat blijven.

Als ik via buitenschoolse activiteiten laat zien dat ik initiatiefrijk ben, kan organiseren, leiding kan geven, een bredere blik op de wereld heb dan alleen een vakgebied, telt dat nu ook al zwaar mee. Waarom zou dat niet voor MOOCs gelden?

Grote afwezige in het geheel is de universiteit die hiervoor in het leven is geroepen. De andere delen zijn te beluisteren op
