Nov. 18-19, 2013, POLICY SUMMIT - Rise of the MOOCs: Foreshadowing the Coming Transformation of Higher Education
The rise of MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) and the growth of open educational resources (OER) have the potential to drive significant change in the higher education enterprise including faculty roles, funding and budgeting, student support services, learning outcome definition and assessment, academic credit and credentialing, and the heart of the teaching and learning process.
Through informative and provocative presentations, discussions, and an examination of innovative and promising practices, attendees at the 2013 MHEC policy summit will consider how to position colleges, universities, and higher education systems to be prepared for potential changes brought by MOOCs and OER on 1) faculty/teaching; 2) institutions/credentialing; 3) students/learning; and 4) systems/planning.
