    • So  you  think  you  want  to  teach  via  a  MOOC…   •  Time  needed  to  create  a  MOOC           •  Plaaorm  may  restrict  pedagogical  choices,  evalua:on   •  Interac:on  with  students  at  scale,  not  individually   •  Administra:ve  Support   –  TA,  :me,  funds   –  Advisory  commi_ee  &  ins:tu:onal  workflow   8-10 hrs/wk 12-25 hrs/wk3-6 hrs/wk 1 hr for every 15 mins of video!

    • Right  for  your  career?   Stardom Reputation Connection with students Passion for subject
    • Right for your career? •  MOOC would be a demonstration of curricular innovation and leadership. •  "meritorious" vs. "excellent" would depend on quality, creativity, impact. So when putting the MOOC in your portfolio… Give a detailed description of the online course --- the need it filled, objectives, types of teaching tools, evidence of dissemination (enrollment, etc) and impact (learning outcomes).

    • Will  you  turn  your  course  into  a  MOOC?  
    • Thank  you!
