ALISE 2014 Juried Panel:
New Landscapes: Exploring MOOCs as LIS and Professional Development Spaces with Kyle Jones, Joanne de Groot, Jennifer Branch. ALISE Conference, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
As a professional development opportunity for a global audience, the Hyperlinked Library MOOC was designed to offer an online space for learning and community-building. Panelists reflect on the MOOC, reporting on participants’ sense of community, the technical and instructional design of the MOOC, and present reflections of its students.
Below are the videos recorded by panelists Joanne de Groot, PhD, Adjunct Assistant Professor, University of Alberta , Department of Elementary Education and Jennifer Branch, PhD, Associate Professor, University of Alberta, Department of Elementary Education and School of Library and Information Studies, as part of our panel presentation at ALISE 2014. Their insights about feelings of community within the MOOC resonate deeply with me.
