This week at CIRTL!
A Behind-the-Scenes Blog Post (CIRTL MOOC)
Have you ever taken a MOOC (a “Massive Open Online Course”) or wondered what goes in to making one? Derek Bruff at Vanderbilt University has advised faculty there about several MOOCs. He’s written a blog about creating his newest MOOC, “An Introduction to Evidence-Based Undergraduate STEM Teaching” (http://derekbruff.org/?p=2924).
Students at UAB are welcome to enroll in this free course on the Coursera platform. The course will run seven weeks, starting October 6, 2014 (http://www.cirtl.net/index.php?q=mooc). We’ll offer discussion opportunities here at UAB for those in the course who are interested. The course is also available for UAB credit; contact Associate Dean Jeff Engler (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
