A short (4-6 weeks) MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) will be offered for Educational Developers at Oxford Brookes University and beyond. Jenny Mackness reports that she will be working with Marion Waite, George Roberts, and The Oxford Centre for Staff and Learning Development (OCSLD) on this JISC-funded project. As Jenny explains,
The aim of this MOOC is to enable, facilitate and support open academic practice within Oxford Brookes University itself and across the academic community worldwide.
A MOOC that is delivered to a targeted group is also available to anyone else who chooses to take part (and, hopefully, contribute). This is sustainable teaching and learning in practice.
