The State University of New York is currently transitioning a successful online faculty development project with a 5-year history into a MOOC that addresses the needs of ALL learners, including students, faculty, and professionals alike. This innovative professional development model enhances participant’s 21st-century skills, including communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity. Established and emerging technology tools are necessary for lifelong learning and are a huge part of our lives for career and personal advancement in today’s digital age. Through the “Exploring Emerging Technologies for Lifelong Learning and Success” (#EmTechMOOC) learners gain a deep understanding of the value and implications of using established and emerging technology tools. An underlying principle of the MOOC promotes a growth mindset, a necessity to keep pace with technology change. This session provides an overview of the project’s history and a look into how the future iteration of the project will take shape.
