If MOOCs Are So Great, Why Aren't We All Doing It?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Does the recent explosion of MOOC’s into the education marketplace threaten to destroy traditional post-secondary educational institutions in it’s path? Or is it just another fad in a long history of educational movements to fade into history. The lecture is supposed to be dead, but then why are TED talks and SXSW conference sessions so well attended? These fast moving educational technology initiatives neglect to the take the time to build on the fundamental research supporting active learning and the basic understanding of scientific research into the human brain. Join us for an interactive conversation about the future of MOOC's and post-secondary education.
