This presentation describes a course in teacher professional development that has been evolving gradually into a MOOC model. MOOCs enable participants to articulate and explore individual learning strategies. This differentiates master learners from those they are employed to teach. When learners must adapt to jobs that haven’t been invented yet, teachers must help learners become master learners; otherwise their ‘training’ only applies to known jobs.

  • Early MOOCs for ESLMOOCs started with CCK08 in 2008, but …• 1997 http://study.com (1000’s)• 1998: Writing for Webheads (100’s)• 2001: Electronic Village Online EVO (1000’s)• 2002: Webheads in Action (100’s-1000)From Leigh Blackall’s post: http://www.leighblackall.com/2012/10/a-trueer-history-of-moocs.html Vance Stevens - TACON Conference Dubai - March 2013
  • MultiMOOChttp://goodbyegutenberg.pbworks.com Vance Stevens - TACON Conference Dubai - March 2013
  • The spirit of multiMOOC?• Follows Cormier’s 5 • Aspires to be steps for success in a – Distributed / MOOC Connectivist – Orient – Directed at constructed – Declare knowledge – Network – Unstructured / informal – Cluster – Negotiated – Focus – Self-directed – Self assessed – Directed at deep learning vs. training Vance Stevens - TACON Conference Dubai - March 2013
  • OK, then, what is a MOOC? Vance Stevens - TACON Conference Dubai - March 2013
  • What is a MOOC• Massive - about scale – relies on increased chance of interactions from a critical mass of participants – curriculum more and more from participants; less from top down• Open - not just free, but – open access – open syllabus, not necessarily pre-scribed• Online - – Internet changes equation where the balance is tipped toward abundance – completely different playing field from scarcity• Course - – Structure – Cohesion based in experience Vance Stevens - TACON Conference Dubai - March 2013
  • ConnectivismSiemens, G. (2004-5). Connectivism:A Learning theory for the digital age.Elearnspace. Retrieved August 17,2011 fromhttp://www.elearnspace.org/Articles/connectivism.htmSiemens’s conclusionscan be startlingIn this YouTube video, Siemens says at min 1:13 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rqL_lsogeNU&feature=youtu.be "Have you ever thought about how completely irrelevant structured learning is?" MePortfolios - Vance Stevens - Aug 2011 8
  • Siemens on ‘the path to knowledge’• “I’m not aware of any research actually that says linear structure produces better outcomes than more chaotic meandering structure.• Our intent, based on our theories of learning is to argue that the experience of learning, making sense of that chaos, is actually the heart of the learning experience,• but if an instructor makes sense of that chaos for you and gives you all the readings and sets the full path in place for you then to a degree you are eviscerating the learner’s experience because now you’ve made sense of them and all you’ve told them is ‘walk the path that I’ve formed’.• When it comes to complexity I’m a great fan of letting learner’s hack their way through that path and getting the value of that learning experience and that sense-making process.”Quotes on this and next slide transcribed fromhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VMfipxhT_Co&feature=related.

  • The Future of MOOCs“The connectivism model will become the primary model … they have to grow to become cMOOCS ...They will do that over time” - Stephen Downes’s sketch fromhttps://sas.elluminate.com/p.jnlp?psid=2012-09-26.0742.M.9E9FE58134BE68C3B413F24B3586CF.vcr&sid=2008350 Vance Stevens - TACON Conference Dubai - March 2013
