Putting MOOCs into their place (640)

Putting MOOCs into their place (640) | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

In this presentation, we explore a way of thinking about and responding to MOOCs from the point of view of a campus-based institution located in a developing country. Some of these ideas about how to assess the challenges and opportunities posed by MOOCs may have relevance for other higher education institutions, especially for those who have not been early adopters.

 

South African universities face context-specific pressures and are reflecting on how MOOCs and online education (amongst other strategies) can contribute to addressing the challenges they face. This perceived need to respond may be acute for the more established research universities who are active participants in global university networks, while at the same time confronting local social and economic imperatives.

The Quest for Critical Thinking

The Quest for Critical Thinking | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

Few phrases are bandied about as much in higher education circles these days as “critical thinking” is. Professors say they teach it; politicians and people hiring graduates say they want to see it. But it is difficult to define with precision. On Tuesday, September 23 at 2 p.m. Eastern, Inside Higher Ed editors Scott Jaschik and Doug Lederman will conduct a free webinar to talk about the issues raised in the booklet's articles.
