Jeff Haywood & Lori Breslow: MOOCs - Open Education with Old & New Learners

" "
Please join us for a discussion with Professor, CIO and Librarian Jeff Haywood of the University of Edinburgh and Dr Lori Breslow of TLL to explore significant and new issues that are emerging in online education environments and that will inform the agenda for educational research. Who are MOOC learners now? What changes we are seeing in their backgrounds and intentions? Where we might take this in terms of widening access to higher education?  Considering open education more broadly, where do we go beyond MOOCs? How to deliver open education at scale?
