Proposal for Action: Parallel mode mOOC delivery by two or more partners

From WikiEducator
Jump to: navigation, search

Strategic goal

Foster innovation through pilot projects which demonstrate the viability and strategic opportunities for the OERu network

Strategic objective

Objective 1: Identify, design and implement OERu pilot projects to inform future improvements and innovations in the OERu model

  • Focus: Progress implementation of mOOC pilot for parallel mode delivery by two or more partners.

Strategic approach

  1. The OERu subscribes to a design-based research approach where pilots are conceptualised and implemented iteratively in authentic settings.
  2. Project steps are informed by a series of Probe (making a change), Sense (review), Respond (act) cycles so that each iteration is small enough to fail but when aggregated help to inform overall decision-making.

Key performance indicator(s) for 2015

(Provide recommendation for recalibrated target if necessary)

Progress the implementation of 2 pilot projects

2015 outputs

  • Identify two or more OERu partners who are able to participate in the pilot
  • Identify possible mOOC course (existing mOOC or new mOOC)
  • Implement pilot
  • Evaluate pilot
  • Other?

Clarifying notes, additional considerations and discussion points

  • This pilot will demonstrate a compelling reuse example for saving cost while serving full-fee registered students at the local institution in parallel with free OERu learners.
  • For piloting purposes, could be restricted to embedding one OERu mOOC within existing course taught locally at two or more partners.
  • International / inter cultural studies
    • Food
    • Values - belief systems
    • Cultural protocols (eg for business)
    • Portrayal through media
    • Storytelling
    • Art
    • Dance
    • Rituals
    • Dress
    • Traditional medicine etc.
