Texas Library Association knows how to throw a conference! So nice to see colleagues and friends. Here’s the abstract for my talk tomorrow morning:
Of MOOCs & Mayhem: Learning Everywhere
9:00 – 9:50 Am
An innovation in online education is the MOOC (Massive Open Online Course). These courses can have thousands of people and can be a potentially disruptive and transformational mechanism for large-scale learning. Hear the genesis of MOOCs, the experiences of librarians in an LIS-centered MOOC, and the potential roles for LIS professionals. This emerging landscape is rife with chaos and opportunity!
