1st workshop: 27 May 2014, London Knowledge Lab

posted Apr 3, 2014, 6:48 AM by Yishay Mor   [ updated Apr 8, 2014, 3:22 PM ]
This is the 1st workshop of the CDE MOOC Design project. This project aims to explore, define and articulate the emerging design principles and patterns that underpin the development and delivery of massive open online courses (MOOCs), and to demonstrate them by application to the design of new MOOCs or elements of MOOCs.

We will do this by bringing together the diverse but complimentary perspectives that will include designers, deliverers, researchers, learners and tutors who are engaged in MOOCS and Open and Distance Learning more broadly.

To facilitate the effective exchange of design knowledge within this community, we will utilise the SNaP! methodolgy, and the Participatory Pattern Workshop format (see below). Prior to this workshop, we will collect design narratives of MOOC participants, facilitators, developers and stakeholders. At the workshop we will review these narratives and extract recurring patterns of challenges and the possible methods of their resolution.
